Williams College: Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Behavioral Neuroscience

Williams College Department of Psychology seeks candidates for a tenure-track position in Behavioral Neuroscience, beginning July 1, 2018. The appointment will normally be at the assistant professor level, although a more senior appointment is possible under special circumstances. We seek productive scholars and excellent teachers whose research programs can engage undergraduate students. Williams College offers substantial internal support for research and a generous sabbatical program. The teaching obligation consists of four courses or the equivalent per year plus a January Winter Study course every other year. Likely courses include the neuroscience section of a team-taught Introductory Psychology course, a co-taught Introduction to Neuroscience course, and an upper-level research seminar with laboratory in the candidate’s area of interest. The successful candidate will also be expected to occasionally join the teaching rotation for our departmental methods and statistics laboratory course and a senior seminar.


Candidates should have a Ph.D. at the time of appointment. In the letter of application, we ask you to speak to your ability to work effectively with a student population that is broadly diverse with regard to gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion. All offers of employment are contingent upon completion of a background check. Further information is available at dean-faculty.williams.edu/prospective-faculty/background-check-policy/.
