Job description

Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia is creating a new interdisciplinary Neuroethics Program, a cooperative venture of the Department of Philosophy, the Neuroscience Institute, the Department of Psychology, and the College of Law. As part of the University’s Second Century Initiative (2CI), the Neuroethics Program will include three new open-rank tenured/tenure-track hires, nine new PhD Fellowships, and a Concentration in Neuroethics in the PhD programs in Neuroscience and in Psychology.  Each successful candidate will be hired at a rank commensurate with experience, with a primary appointment in the Departments of Philosophy or Psychology, the Neuroscience Institute, or the College of Law.  Joint appointment in these units and affiliation with other research units or interdisciplinary initiatives will be encouraged. The Neuroethics Program will be a part of a thriving interdisciplinary neuroscience community in Atlanta and at GSU, including the resources of the Center for Advanced Brain Imaging, the Brains & Behavior Program, the Language Research Center, and the Jean Beer Blumenfeld Center for Ethics.

Candidates should have expertise in one or more of the following areas: (A) cognitive, affective, or social neuroscience, specializing in moral cognition, emotion, or behavior; (B) ethical and/or legal theory, applying this expertise to the ethical and legal implications of neuroscience; (C) philosophy of mind/cognitive science, with research on the implications of neuroscience for moral theory and moral psychology.  Successful candidates will have research and teaching interests that cross traditional departmental boundaries.  Candidates must have a demonstrated record of successful research and teaching and hold the PhD or JD at the time of application.  Anticipated start date is Fall 2013. 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 enahmias(at)gsu.edu.  Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2012 and will continue until the three positions are filled.  

In addition to these positions, the 2CI program is supporting hires in neuroimaging; primate social cognition, evolution, and behavior; and neurogenomics.  For more information, see http://www.gsu.edu/secondcentury/.

An offer of employment will be 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 and encourages applications from women and minority candidates.
