*The Psychology Department at the University of Maryland, College

level in
affective, cognitive, developmental, or social neuroscience. We seek an
established scientist with an active research program to serve as the
director of a newly established NSF-funded Brain Imaging Center *equipped
with state-of-the-art fMRI facilities particularly suited for human
developmental work. This individual will be a leader for a growing group of
scientists whose research involves brain imaging. The Brain Imaging Center
is an initiative of the interdepartmental Ph.D.-granting Program in
Neuroscience and Cognitive Science (NACS), which brings together faculty and
students from 14 departments and 8 colleges across the university.

The appointment is in the Psychology Department, with joint teaching
commitments to the Department and to the NACS Program. The Psychology
Department has Ph.D. training programs in Clinical Psychology; Cognitive and
Neural Systems; Counseling Psychology; Developmental Psychology; and Social,
Decision, and Organizational Systems. The successful candidate will fit
comfortably in one or more of these areas and have an innovative research
program that aligns with the existing research strengths of the
Psychology/NACS communities. Interested persons studying any area of
developmental, cognitive, sensory, social, and/or affective neuroscience are
encouraged to apply.

Candidates must present a record of external funding, excellent research
productivity, and interest in forming collaborative research ties within and
across programs and departments.  Experience with fMRI research is essential
and administrative experience is highly desirable. A strong commitment to
teaching and mentorship at both the undergraduate and graduate levels is
expected. Salary is highly competitive, research conditions are excellent,
and there are outstanding opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration
both at the University of Maryland and at universities and Federal
laboratories in the Washington DC metropolitan area.

three articles to search@psyc.umd.edu.  Please also arrange to have three
