One was recently filled by Nicole Vincent (neurolaw and neuroethics) and one will be filled by a cognitive neuroscientist or psychologist specializing in moral cognition, emotion, or behavior.  The presently advertised position will have primary appointment in the Philosophy Department, building on its existing strengths in ethics/philosophy of law and in empirically informed philosophy of mind/moral psychology.  AOS: Ethical and/or Legal Theory, with research on ethical or legal implications of neuroscience, or Philosophy of Mind/Cognitive Science or Moral Psychology, with research on the interactions between these fields and neuroscience. AOC: Open.  Candidates should have an interest in building an interdisciplinary Neuroethics Program, and have research and teaching interests that cross traditional departmental boundaries.  Candidates must have a demonstrated record of successful research and teaching and hold a PhD at the time of application.  Salary is competitive.  The Department has a thriving M.A. program and excellent support for research.  Typical teaching load is 2-2 with thesis supervision and usual service responsibilities.  The Neuroethics Program will support Concentrations in Neuroethics in the PhD programs in Neuroscience and in Psychology and will be a part of an active interdisciplinary community in Atlanta and at GSU, including the Center for Advanced Brain Imaging, the Brains & Behavior Program, the Language Research Center, the Blumenfeld Center for Ethics, and an emerging Atlanta Neuroethics Consortium among local universities.  Applicants should apply online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/1576, where they will find instructions on materials to submit.  Questions should be addressed to the chair of the search committee, Eddy Nahmias, at [email protected].  Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2013 and continue until the position is filled.  Offer of employment conditional on background verification.  Georgia State University is a Research University of the University System of Georgia that is committed to serving a diverse student body.  Georgia State University is an AA/EEO Employer.  Qualified women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
