- About PSI
PSI is headquartered in Tucson, AZ. Our scientists are distributed in multiple States and countries including the UK, France, Switzerland, Russia and Australia with affiliates in Japan and China.
Candidates are expected to develop their own independent, externally funded research program. A Ph.D. is generally required at the time of appointment. The level of appointment will depend upon background and experience. Associate Research Scientists are usually newer Ph.D.s in the process of establishing funding. PSI Mentors are provided to assist them in establishing collaborations, identify programs for proposing, and generally act as a resource. Associate Research Scientist positions are one year, renewable. Research Scientists have a demonstrated record of conducting research as a Principal Investigator, and Senior Scientists couple this with more than ten years of experience post-Ph.D. Applicants must agree to a background check.
