Stony Brook is seeking a Director for a newly developed Center for cognitive and behavioral neuroscience. The Center's program will be interdisciplinary, and involve faculty from both the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Medicine. The Center will enhance and integrate the existing strengths in neuroscience of various departments (e.g. Psychology, Psychiatry and Neurobiology and Behavior, ). A number of tenure-track faculty lines, in addition to the Director's, will be devoted to its further development.

The Director's position will be a senior, tenured faculty appointment. We seek
an outstanding scientist with an excellent track record of research involving the
study of the nervous system and its relationship to cognition/behavior. We
expect the Director to maintain a vigorous, productive, and independently-funded research program. The Director will use her/his leadership and administrative skills to promote further development of the Center at the faculty, graduate and undergraduate levels.

Applications and nominations, curriculum vitae, and the names, addresses and
telephone numbers of at least three references should be submitted immediately to:
