 The University of Delaware invites applications for a tenured associate professor (or assistant professor nearing tenure) in behavioral neuroscience to begin September 1, 2019. We are seeking to hire a scholar with a solid background in small animal fMRI and/or DTI at ultrahigh fields for linking systems neuroscience and brain MR imaging (the university has a 9.4T/30cm Bruker MRI for animal research). The exact discipline area is open for this position as scholarly excellence will be the primary consideration. Ideal candidates will have extensive experience in brain science-oriented MR research, demonstrate outstanding and innovative scholarship, and have collaborative and synergistic possibilities with existing researchers at UD. The candidate should enjoy collaborating with researchers from various disciplines (e.g., medical engineering, biochemistry) and helping researchers new to MRI.

 This is an outstanding opportunity for a scholar to join and strengthen the growing Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences (https://www.psych.udel.edu) and University of Delaware (https://www.udel.edu) that already has a promising core of interdisciplinary researchers utilizing cutting edge methodologies.
