anticipated to begin September 2020, subject to administrative and
budgetary approval. Appointments may be made at either junior or
senior level. We seek exceptional candidates that can carry out
research programs aimed at quantitative analysis and modeling of
neural data, and developing related data science tools and methods,
leveraging existing strengths of CNS and CDS. We are particularly
interested in scholars with cross-disciplinary research interests
that complement those of our existing faculty. The successful
candidate will be a faculty member in both units, with teaching,
service, and other professional duties split between them.

relevant field.

Please include a CV, a short statement of your research and
teaching interests, and a list of at least three references capable
of providing a letter on your behalf. Diversity is an important
part of the NYU mission and we ask that you address how diversity
and inclusion factor into past and present teaching, research,
and/or community engagement, as well as how you would bring issues
of diversity to bear on teaching and programming at NYU. For more
