Multiple tenure track faculty positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor level are available for neuroscientists. Competitive salary, laboratory space and start-up funds will be provided. Modern facilities include core laboratories for rodent behavioral assays and confocal and electron microscopy. Current research strengths in the Neuroscience Research Center include: cellular and molecular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity, reward processing, endocannabinoid signaling, cellular neurobiology of pain, mechanisms of neuronal injury and strategies for repair, CNS mitochondrial function and dysfunction, and molecular mechanisms of stress. Candidates whose research complements these areas and/or is focused on neuroimmunology or stem cells for neural repair are especially encouraged to apply.
Contribution to team taught courses in Neuroscience and participation in our interdisciplinary graduate programs will be expected. Applicants for Assistant Professor must have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree (or equivalent) plus 3 years of postdoctoral experience. Candidates at the Associate Professor level are expected to have established a vigorous, productive and NIH-funded research program. Interested individuals should send a curriculum vitae, statement of research plans, three relevant publications and the names of three references before November 15, 2012 to:
