Applications are invited for two tenure-track positions at the level of Assistant Professor starting September, 2018, pending budgetary approval. While all areas of neuroscience research will be considered, individuals whose research is in the area of systems neuroscience (including those whose research is focused on rodents and non-human primates) are especially encouraged to apply. Collegial interactions and collaborative research are widespread within the Department of Neuroscience (http://www.neuroscience.pitt.edu/), and across the extensive, and growing, neuroscience community found in Pittsburgh. Our integrative research environment is exemplified by the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (CNUP; http://cnup.neurobio.pitt.edu/), the University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute (http://www.braininstitute.pitt.edu/) and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC; http://www.cnbc.cmu.edu/), which bridges the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. Successful candidates will be expected to establish an independent research program and participate in teaching neuroscience to undergraduate and graduate students.
Candidates should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research accomplishments and goals, and the names and contact information for three references. Applicants can apply online at: https://facultysearch.as.pitt.edu/apply/index/MTk0. For each reference, you will have the opportunity to input a personal email address or an email address generated through Interfolio’s Online Application Delivery. In both cases, an email notification will be sent to the designated address with instructions about uploading the letters to our system. For full consideration, application materials must be received by October 15, 2017. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.

The University of Pittsburgh, Department of Neuroscience is located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The department, established in 1986 as an expansion of the program in behavioral neuroscience, was founded on the notion that neuroscience was an up and coming discipline that belonged as an undergraduate major and a field of graduate study.
The undergraduate program attracts a relatively large and... academically successful group of majors, the great majority of whom go on to medical or graduate school.
