Back to: Positions Available
The Department of Psychology at Western Kentucky University invites applications for a Research Assistant Professor (RAP) in cognitive neuroscience.
The successful applicant will have an earned doctorate, research experience using ERP/EEG measures, and a strong potential for obtaining extramural support. This is a full-time, 12-month research position supported jointly for 2 years by the Department of Psychology and the Office of Research. There are no teaching responsibilities in this position, but there is an opportunity to teach occasional classes if desired. Continuation beyond 2 years is contingent on the RAP obtaining grant funding to cover salary and research costs. It is expected that the RAP will collaborate with and/or assist Psychology Department faculty who want to incorporate ERP/EEG measures into their research. The Department has an ERP lab with Electrical Geodesics 128-channel dense-array EEG/ERP equipment with integrated eye tracking system.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Applications should be received by October 31, 2012, for priority consideration. Send letter of application, vitae, three letters of recommendation, reprints/preprints, and copies of graduate transcripts to the chair of the search committee by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to:
