Applications are inviited for a position of full professor to be held by an accomplished scientist dedicated to behavioral (neural bases of learning and memory) or integrative neuroscience. The candidate will conduct research, supervise PhD students, cooperate with senior and junior staff members in research and will have an active role in (inter)national research fundraising. In addition, the candidate will contribute to educational programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels (www.u-bordeaux1.fr).

The candidate will be expected to develop a vigorous research program within the Centre of Integrative and Cognitive Neuroscience (www.cnic.u-bordeaux1.fr).

The candidate is expected to establish an independent research team that will contribute to the objectives of the Centre and will benefit from the conceptual and technical environment provided by the Centre itself and by the Bordeaux Neuroscience Institute (www.inb.u-bordeaux2.fr/index.php). To this end, the possibility will exist to recruit an additional assistant professor.

The position should be filled by October 2010, but the candidates have to apply for initial qualification to the function of professor (https://extranet.ac-versailles.fr/ensup/galaxie/candidats.html) by mid-October 2009.
