Tenure-track Assistant Professor Featured
AFFECTIVE NEUROIMAGING: Pomona College invites applications for a tenure-track, joint appointment in the Departments of Psychological Science and Neuroscience beginning Fall 2020. The position is targeted at the assistant professor rank, but outstanding candidates at more senior ranks will be considered. We seek candidates with an active research program that involves undergraduates and a strong commitment to excellence in teaching. Research program pertinent to the study of human affect is preferred, and use of fMRI in research is required, but the area of specialization is open. There are several scanners in the Southern California area where candidates could work on establishing collaborations, but there are none at the Claremont Colleges. Therefore, we are seeking candidates who can creatively involve students in research utilizing fMRI data. Teaching load is two courses per semester and may include introduction to psychological science, an advanced seminar in emotions, and a laboratory course in emotions and fMRI neuroimaging. Supervision of research and senior thesis students from the psychological science and neuroscience departments is also expected. The successful candidate will have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and a demonstrated commitment to improving higher education for underrepresented groups. Pomona College, the founding member of the Claremont Colleges consortium, is a highly selective liberal arts college attracting an economically and geographically diverse student body. Please submit to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/13927 the following materials: a) cover letter, b) curriculum vitae, c) three brief statements addressing teaching philosophy, scholarship (including how a successful research program will be conducted with undergraduates using fMRI methodology), and demonstrated ability to mentor a diverse student body, d) three representative reprints or pre-prints, and e) three letters of recommendation. In order to receive full consideration, dossier should be submitted by October 4.
