The Robert J. and Nancy D. Carney Institute for Brain Science at Brown invites applications from rising and established leaders in computational brain science for a tenure-track/tenured position at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level. A transformative $100M gift to the Institute is catalyzing the growth and expansion of Carney faculty and research over the next decade, including to further research goals of the Center for Computational Brain Science. As part of this expansion, this search will consider applicants with expertise in computational neuroscience broadly construed and will result in an appointment with a tenure-track home in a Carney Institute-affiliated department (including physics, applied mathematics, computer science, neuroscience, and cognitive, linguistic and psychological sciences).

The successful applicant will have an outstanding record of research and teaching that contributes to the mission of the candidate’s appropriate home department and the Carney Institute Center for Computational Brain Science. We are particularly interested in scholars who demonstrate commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in the brain sciences.

The Carney Institute promotes discovery and innovation in brain science by supporting a diverse community of experimentalists, theorists, engineers, and clinicians. With more than 200 affiliated faculty members in more than 20 academic and clinical units, the Carney Institute catalyzes research across the brain sciences, including in the neurobiology of cells and circuits, computational brain science, cognition and behavior, and neuroengineering and neurotechnology. We are a highly interactive community that values collaborative approaches to tackle major questions in brain science to benefit society. Quality of research and scholarship is central to reaching our goals and this depends on engaging talented scientists from across academia and embracing their contributions in a fully inclusive community. The Carney Institute’s strategic vision is aligned with Brown’s commitment to creating a more fully diverse and inclusive community, outlined in “Pathways to Diversity and Inclusion: An Action Plan for Brown University.”

Qualifications Applicants must have a Ph.D. at the time of starting work. The start date can be anytime between July 1, 2024, and January 1, 2025.

Application Instructions All candidates should submit: (1) a teaching statement; (2) a research statement; (3) a diversity and inclusion statement; (4) a curriculum vitae; (5) up to 5 publications; and (6) a cover letter describing their interest in the position (including the general field of research and potential departments of interest); (7) Candidates currently holding tenured faculty positions should provide the names of three referees; these referees will not be contacted without prior authorization from the candidate. Candidates who do not currently hold a tenured faculty position should have at least three letters of reference submitted before the application deadline. Letters of support should speak to the candidate’s potential as a scholar, colleague, mentor and teacher.

Inquiries about the position should be directed to

Consideration of applications will begin on November 13, 2023; we will continue to accept applications until the position is filled. Brown is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, and members of underrepresented groups in brain science are strongly encouraged to apply.
