PhD Program in Complex Systems and Brain Sciences
Florida Atlantic University
The Center for Complex Systems and Brain Sciences at Florida Atlantic University invites applications for a
tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in its nationally and internationally recognized PhD Program in Complex Systems and Brain Sciences. Candidates will have the opportunity to work in the Center’s explicitly transdisciplinary
setting that promotes interaction among Center faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and students. Faculty members include cognitive, systems, social and behavioral neuroscientists, theoretical physicists, and computational cognitive scientists. Research programs
utilize human, animal, and computational models.
The position’s research area is open, but the ideal candidate will have a strong quantitative and data analytic background in computational or theoretical systems neuroscience. Preference will be given to research programs focused on complex systems
in the brain and behavioral sciences.
Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Psychology, Physics, Applied Math, or a related discipline, an excellent record of research productivity, the potential to develop an independent and internationally recognized research
program, and strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate education in the application of complex systems theory to the brain sciences.
The position is open until filled and may close without prior notice. Applications received by November 20, 2016 will receive full consideration.
All applicants must apply electronically to the currently posted position (991202) on the Office of Human Resources’ job website (https://jobs.fau.edu) by completing the Faculty, Administrative, Managerial & Professional Position Application and
