Tenure Stream Positions in the Neurobiology of Dementia
The University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute (http://www.braininstitute.pitt.edu/) is seeking exceptional candidates to develop and grow outstanding research programs specifically focused on the neurobiology of dementia. Two tenure-stream positions are available. Applicants must have a PhD and/or MD degree and have demonstrated excellence in research. Appointments will be made in the Department of Neurobiology of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (http://www.neurobio.pitt.edu/) at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, commensurate with qualifications. Appointees will also become members of the Pittsburgh Institute of Neurodegenerative Diseases (http://www.pind.pitt.edu/), having full access to a wide range of shared resources. Moreover, additional resources and expertise will also be available through the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (http://www.adrc.pitt.edu/). Salary and start-up package are highly competitive. Successful applicants will be expected to obtain extramural funding, establish a competitive research program and participate in graduate and medical education. The University of Pittsburgh has a long history of research accomplishments and excellence in neuroscience graduate education (http://cnup.neurobio.pitt.edu/). The Brain Institute (Peter Strick, Director) is a University-wide initiative whose central mission is to unlock the mysteries of normal and abnormal brain function and to translate the new discoveries that result from this effort into novel approaches for overcoming brain disorders.
Candidates should submit a CV, three letters of reference, a brief description of research interests and up to three publications via email to DementiaRecruit@neurobio.pitt.edu. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.

About University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute and Department of Neurobiology, School of Medicine
The University of Pittsburgh has a long history of research accomplishments and excellence in neuroscience.
The Department of Neurobiology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine has substantial programmatic strengths in neural development, circuit and systems function, cellular communication through receptors, channels and synapses, systems/integrative neuroscience and neurological ...and psychiatric disease. The faculty in the Department integrate their efforts with other research programs at the University of Pittsburgh and nearby Carnegie-Mellon University. Members of the faculty also actively participate in the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (CNUP) and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC), a joint program of the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, as well as the Pittsburgh Center for Pain Research and the Pittsburgh Institute for Neurodegenerative Disease. Research programs in the Department focus on addressing questions central to understanding the biological basis of brain function and the genetic and epigenetic influences that result in neurological and psychiatric disease.
