The Groningen Institute for Evolutionary Life Sciences is looking for an Assistant Professor, who can strengthen their position in the field of Behavioural Neuroscience, with an emphasis on neurobiological studies of behaviour under ecologically relevant conditions. The new staff member is expected to set up an independent research line within this field, complementary to the current neurobiological, evolutionary and ecological research in the GELIFES. The successful candidate is expected to take an integrative approach to address their research questions, and develop a strong research programme in Behavioural Neuroscience, focusing on the neurobiological mechanisms underlying complex behaviour in non-domesticated animal species under semi-natural conditions. With this profile the candidate is expected to develop a group that can successfully apply for competitive funding from e.g. topical programs of the Dutch Science Council and European funding schemes (e.g., related to neuropsychiatric disorders).
We offer you a full-time position and excellent career opportunities in our faculty’s career system Career Paths in Science and Engineering, including the perspective to get a permanent appointment (tenure) in 1-3 years and become Full Professor in approximately 10 years.
