TENURED / TENURE-TRACK FACULTY POSITION. The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Department of Behavioral Science, is accepting applications for one open rank tenured or tenure-track position in addiction neuroscience. For this position, we are interested in outstanding scientists with interests in applying neuroscience approaches to the study of nicotine dependence in humans. Individuals with expertise in applying cognitive or affective neuroscience paradigms to the study of addiction using imaging technology (e.g., fMRI) are of particular interest. Additional areas of interest include developmental neuroscience, neuropharmacology, learning, behavioral economics, and genetics, as applied to the study of nicotine dependence. The successful candidate will join a group of investigators with complementary expertise in tobacco research. She/he will have an opportunity to conduct research in the context of large clinical trials for smoking cessation in community populations utilizing behavioral and pharmacological treatments, and/or stand-alone human laboratory paradigms.
This position is fully funded, with an obligation for only 40% extramural support following the third year of appointment. Salary is extremely competitive and commensurate with experience. MD Anderson offers excellent benefits, including a very generous start-up package with value depending on the rank of the appointment.
