Position description: The Cornell Initiative to bridge Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Neuroscience invites applications for two open rank, tenure track faculty positions in the Departments of Neurobiology and Behavior (https://nbb.cornell.edu/) and Computational Biology (https://compbio.cornell.edu/about/computational-biology/). Candidates may use experimental, computational, and/or machine learning methods to understand the neural basis of animal or human behavior. Individuals are expected to establish a vigorous, externally funded, internationally recognized research program and to excel in undergraduate and graduate teaching programs. These hires are part of a larger Initiative in AI research at Cornell and successful candidates should have a pioneering spirit and a track record of collaborative work and enthusiasm about bridging top-ranked systems neuroscience, neuroengineering, behavior, computational biology and AI communities established at Cornell (https://machinelearning.cis.cornell.edu/).
Qualifications: A PhD in neuroscience, computational biology, computer science, behavior, physics, or a related field and a primary interest in understanding behavior and neural data through the development and use of computational, statistical and/or machine learning methods. Postdoctoral experience with a demonstrated record of productivity is required.
Diversity and Inclusion: Cornell University embraces diversity and inclusion. We seek candidates who will contribute to a climate that supports students, faculty, and staff of all identities and backgrounds. We will consider candidates with nonconventional career trajectories, and we strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented and/or marginalized identities to apply.
Applications and Starting Date: Anticipated starting date is July 1, 2022, or as negotiated. Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, statement of diversity, equity, and inclusion and arrange to have three reference letters submitted to Academic Jobs Online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19115 Inquiries may be sent to Jesse Goldberg, Search Committee Chair, email@example.com. Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2021. Selected applicants will present at a Symposium on the Neuroscience-AI interface December 8-11, 2021.
Opportunity: The new faculty member will join a collaborative, interdisciplinary community on the main campus in Ithaca, New York. Cornell University is an innovative Ivy League university and a great place to work. Our inclusive community of scholars, students and staff impart an uncommon sense of larger purpose and contribute creative ideas to further the university's mission of teaching, discovery and engagement.
