The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and Neuroscience Program at Colgate University invites applications for a tenure-track position in Cellular/Molecular Neuroscience at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning in the fall semester of 2023. We seek outstanding candidates who use molecular or cellular approaches to investigate fundamental or innovative questions in neuroscience. The specific line of research is open and could utilize in vitro or in vivo model systems. Completion of Ph.D. is required prior to or shortly after the date of hire.

Colgate is a top liberal arts college where excellence in teaching and research are expected and supported. The successful candidate will join a neuroscience and psychological science faculty deeply committed to a strong, research-oriented program and to a curriculum that integrates neuroscience and psychological science perspectives. Colgate supports faculty in their research program through competitive startup funds, internal funding mechanisms and support for seeking external funding.  Colgate recently inaugurated a new Mind, Brain and Behavior Initiative that provides support and opportunities for interdisciplinary teaching and collaborative research.  The teaching load is equivalent to five courses per year. Teaching responsibilities are likely to include staff-taught courses (e.g., Introduction to Neuroscience, Strategies & Discoveries in Neuroscience), elective courses in the candidate’s specialty area, and supervision of senior thesis work (which normally counts as a one course load). The successful candidate also will be expected to participate in all-university programs, including the Liberal Arts Core Curriculum.

Review of applications will begin on October 8, 2022 and continue until the position is filled.  Additional information and the place to submit applications can be found at   A guide for applicants with additional information can be found at
