Visiting Professor of Neuroscience

Kenyon College, a highly selective, nationally ranked liberal arts college in central Ohio, invites applications for a one-year Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Neuroscience for the 2019-2020.

The Neuroscience Department is interdisciplinary with several members appointed into other departments (Biology, Chemistry, Psychology, Philosophy and Anthropology).
