Position Summary Information
The primary purpose of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience is to provide excellent education, research and service in the field. This goal breaks down easily, into four important components: 1) to teach psychology to undergraduates in a manner that will introduce them vigorously to its broad scope; 2) to offer scientific and professional training to graduate students in the areas of biological, clinical, cognitive, developmental, quantitative, and social psychology; 3) to carry out cutting-edge research in these areas, and 4) to provide consulting and administrative support services to the science and profession of psychology and neuroscience as well as to the university, the community, the state, the region, and the nation.
The Department consists of six programs: behavioral and integrative neuroscience; clinical psychology; cognitive psychology; developmental psychology; quantitative psychology; and social psychology. Each program is focused on a different area of research and provides training in the research skills needed to become a competent and creative investigator. In addition, the programs focus on the development of appropriate professional skills.
The Human Neuroimaging Group (HNG) is an informal group of researchers within the Psychology and Neuroscience department who hail from all existing programs. The focus of the HNG is to foster excellence in research on human neuroimaging and cognitive neuroscience, more broadly.
