Positions Available

Dear Colleagues, 

I am pleased to announce the availability of four tenure-track positions in neuroimaging at the University of South Carolina.  This is a cluster-hire, lead by our Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.  Individuals with interests in auditory or speech imaging are encouraged to apply.

Details appear below.  They should appear on our web site shortly: http://www.sph.sc.edu/comd/

Please feel free to distribute to colleagues who may be interested.



The University of South Carolina seeks to hire four tenure-track
assistant professors with research interests in brain plasticity and/or
brain imaging. Positions are available in one or more of the departments
of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Electrical Engineering,
Exercise Science, Psychology and the School of Medicine. This is an
interdisciplinary cluster hire, independent of department location,
although hires will be made into specific departmental tenure-track
positions. Successful candidates will have demonstrated the ability to
conduct neuroscience that augments and complements existing USC
expertise in magnetic resonance imaging using our 3T Siemens Trio system
and 7T Bruker system (see http://www.mccauslandcenter.sc.edu/ for more
information). Potential areas of expertise include protocol development,
physical therapy, physical function and mobility, speech development or
recovery, biomedical image processing, and behavioral neuroscience. A
PhD and/or MD in a relevant discipline is required as successful
applicants are expected to lead their own research program and teach.
Applicants should have active research and demonstrate potential to
acquire external grant funding. Teaching and postdoctoral experience is
strongly preferred. Salary is commensurate with experience. Applicants
should submit a letter of application, a vita, statements of research
and teaching interests, names and contact information for at least three
letters of recommendation, and copies of selected publications to the
Chair of the Brain Plasticity Search Committee, Department of
Communication Sciences and Disorders, University of South Carolina,
Columbia SC 29208 [rorden@xxxxxxxxxx] . For full consideration,
applications must be received by December 15, 2007. The University of
South Carolina is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer.
Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. The University of South
Carolina does not discriminate in educational or employment
opportunities or decisions for qualified persons on the basis of race,
color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual
orientation or veteran status.  The University of South Carolina is
responsive to dual career couples.
