Academic Fellowship in Cognitive Neuroscience
The University of Vermont College of Arts and Sciences Andrew Harris Fellowship Program

The University of Vermont is pleased to announce an academic postdoctoral fellowship position in cognitive neuroscience, and/or neuropsychology. UVM is especially interested in scholars who can contribute to the UVM College of Arts and Sciences diversity plan, which was, in part, designed to ensure faculty, students, and staff members from underrepresented and marginalized populations are an integral part of the life and governance of the institution.

This fellowship is offered as a joint appointment through the Department of Psychological Science and the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders in support of the interdisciplinary Undergraduate Neuroscience Program. The minimum criteria for this fellowship are a Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychology, and/or a related field.

Applicants in the early stages of their career are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will be expected to teach courses for the Undergraduate Neuroscience Program and to make progress towards establishing an independent research program with mentorship tailored to the individual to facilitate the transition into a tenure-track faculty position at the end of the fellowship. The University of Vermont has a strong neuroscience community engaged in transdisciplinary research in Neuroscience, Behavior and Health. Because of our comprehensive breadth, we offer a wide variety of research and clinical mentorship opportunities (e.g., from direct clinical applications to investigations of molecular processes) to support fellowship scholars in reaching their potential.
