[#DIV28SUPER] UNL CB3 Biomarkers Asst Assoc Prof Ad

ANOTHER POSITION at UNL PSYCHOLOGY



Assistant or Associate Professor
Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior
University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln and its Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior (CB3) invite applications for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position focused on expertise in the use of biomarkers in research to begin in August 2018. The position will be at the rank of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor, depending on experience and qualifications. The successful candidate must have expertise in the use of fluid biomarkers to investigate relations between biological processes and behavior. Expertise in the use of salivary biomarkers is a must. Those with expertise in using a broader range of biomarkers (e.g., blood, hair, and/or urine) and integrating fluid biomarkers with neuroimaging will be prioritized.

Given the active involvement of CB3 in a unique research collaboration with University Athletics, candidates with experience using fluid biomarkers to address research questions pertaining to sports concussion and/or athletic performance are of particular interest. While not required, there is also great interest in candidates whose scholarship addresses theory-driven questions connecting to one or more CB3 topics of inquiry, including traumatic brain injury; pediatric health and development; health behavior; somatosensory and motor function; political attitudes and behavior; and the heritability and neurological basis of impulsivity, emotion regulation, and decision-making as applicable to health-risk behavior and mental health. Researchers with expertise to contribute to the advancement of biomarker measurement and discovery are also encouraged to apply. Responsibilities include maintaining an active research program, including pursuit of external funding, offering consultation in the use of biomarkers in research, and teaching graduate and undergraduate courses.

A Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience or related field is required. Applicants must have an outstanding record of research and evidence of excellent teaching and mentoring. Expertise in the use of salivary biomarkers to investigate relations between biological processes and behavior is essential. Preference will be given to applicants with evidence of independent and collaborative extramural funding.

The position will have resident faculty status in the interdisciplinary CB3 with a departmental tenure home dependent on candidate interest and background. CB3 is housed within 30,000 square feet of dedicated space in Memorial Stadium, constructed in collaboration with Nebraska Athletics. CB3 features salivary bioscience and MRI core facilities, as well as several specialized laboratories including NIRS, high-density EEG/ERP, eye tracking, psychophysiology, and genetics. This faculty member will be a valuable contributor to research efforts at CB3 and the Nebraska Athletic Performance Laboratory (NAPL), and have the opportunity to play a major role in collaborating with other faculty members and research scientists affiliated with the newly established Salivary Bioscience Laboratory (core facility). There will also be opportunities to connect to other major centers, programs and initiatives (e.g., Minority Health Disparities Initiative; Nebraska Center for Children, Youth, Families and Schools; Social and Behavioral Sciences Research Consortium).

Review of applications will begin March 9, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. To be considered for the position, please go to http://employment.unl.edu, requisition #F_180015, and click "Apply to this job". Candidates should attach a letter of application, curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, and contact information for three letters of reference.


As an EO/AA employer, qualified applicants are considered for employment without regard to race, color, ethnicity, national origin, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, marital status, and/or political affiliation.
