Hershey Medical Center seeks applicants for an open-rank, tenure track faculty position in the recently established Attention and Behavior Clinical (ABC) Science program in conjunction with our Affective Neurosciences Laboratory.

The laboratory has a broad focus including ADHD, addictions, eating disorders, anxiety, and depression. Experience with fMRI is welcomed but not required.
The Department of Psychiatry is comprised of 54 faculty members with nearly half in the Child Division. We also have an APA approved Psychology Internship and a Child Psychiatry Fellowship.
