The University of Nevada, Reno, Department of Psychology invites applications for an Assistant or Associate Professor in Cognitive Neuroscience, to serve as Director of the University's Neuroimaging Core Facility. In addition to their regular faculty appointment, the successful applicant will lead in the development, implementation, and support of cutting-edge neuroimaging techniques and analyses at the university as Director of the Neuroimaging Core, part of an NIH Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) for Integrative Neuroscience (www.unr.edu/neuroscience/center<http://www.unr.edu/neuroscience/center>). The core provides excellent access and support for a wide range of neuroimaging resources including 3T fMRI, high-density EEG, fNIRS, Adaptive Optics, and High Performance Computing. The Director will oversee the operation and strategic planning for the core. The position includes competitive start-up, as well as compensation for the administrative duties of the directorship.

Applicants should have a strong record of research and demonstrated potential for extramural funding in advanced neuroimaging paradigms and computational analyses including fMRI, as well as interest and ability to oversee a multifaceted research core.

The university has made a major investment in building Neuroscience as an area of strategic growth, including many new faculty lines and the development of both undergraduate and graduate training programs. The advertised position is part of the graduate programs in Integrative Neuroscience (www.unr.edu/neuroscience/graduate-program<https://www.unr.edu/neuroscience/graduate-program>) and Cognitive and Brain Sciences (groups.unr.edu/unr_psych_cbs/CBS_grad_program<https://groups.unr.edu/unr_psych_cbs/CBS_grad_program>). Teaching responsibilities include training and seminars in the graduate programs, and undergraduate courses for both the Psychology and Neuroscience majors. The Psychology Department currently includes 10 labs focused on visual neuroscience and visual cognition, and individuals whose research builds on and complements this strength in vision science are especially encouraged to apply.

The University of Nevada, Reno is a land-grant research and teaching institution. It serves approximately 22,000 students, with significant and growing numbers of first-generation students and students of color (https://www.unr.edu).  The University believes that diversity promotes excellence in education. We are an inclusive and engaged community, and we recognize the added value that students, faculty, and staff from different backgrounds bring to the educational experience. The university also recognizes the importance of addressing dual-career couples' professional needs. We offer a dual career assistance program to newly hired faculty spouses/partners that provides resources and assists them to identify career opportunities in Northern Nevada.

The university is centrally located adjacent to downtown Reno. Boasting a vibrant counter-cultural scene, the Reno-Tahoe area has long been a destination for world-class outdoor recreation. Reno is situated on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada, 45 minutes from Lake Tahoe, four hours from the San Francisco Bay Area, and near both Yosemite and Lassen National Parks.
