Assistant Professor of Educational Psychology-Educational Neuroscience (Tenure-Track)

The Educational Psychology Program at the University of Alabama invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position to expand its Educational Neuroscience Initiative. We seek a junior scientist with an interdisciplinary background whose research focuses on understanding neural mechanisms of learning and cognition, and educational implications of neuroscience research in one or more relevant domains (e.g., math learning & numerical cognition, science education, reading & literacy, motivation & affect, human development, learning technologies, cognitive and behavioral disorders). The ideal candidate can integrate developmental, neural, evolutionary and cognitive approaches to construct multi-level theories of learning and cognition, and can conduct experimental and learning design studies to validate these theories.
