The candidate should be willing to support the mission of LUC and the goals of a Jesuit Catholic Education.
Special consideration will be given to candidates whose research employs EEG, eye tracking, NIRS (near infrared spectroscopy), TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation), cortisol or other hormone measurement, other psychophysical measurement techniques, or behavioral genetics, all in human subjects.
