The Neuroscience Initiative of the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center in Manhattan, NY, invites applications for full-time, tenure-track faculty members at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor rank.
We seek outstanding scientist with a strong record of publications and significant research accomplishments in the fields of: glial biology, glial-neuronal communication, brain metabolism, gut/brain communication, environmental effects on brain structure and brain metabolism and studies integrating Nanotechnology and Photonics with Neuroscience.
We also encourage candidates with a background in analysis of large data set, such as genome-wide distribution of Epigenomic marks (i.e. ChIP, ATAC-Seq, RNA Seq, DNA methylation), analysis of Microbiome data sets and integration with Metabolomic approaches, to apply. Experience with Network Analysis and Large data integration applied to biological questions is required.
We encourage application from candidates with a collaborative spirit and passion for education, proposing innovative ideas and interdisciplinary approaches, with a demonstrated use of a wide range of experimental and computational approaches to tackle fundamental questions in neurobiology.
Candidates for Assistant Professor positions are expected to have advanced degrees (Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent) in any area of biology, neuroscience or computation plus at least 3 years of postdoctoral research experience in the indicated fields of research. At Associate and Full Professor level, faculty ranks will be determined based on: overall qualifications, scholar contributions (as per publications and funding record) and demonstrated commitment to conducting high-level scientific research adopting interdisciplinary approaches. Individuals considered for these positions are expected to serve a major role in shaping an outstanding research mission at the ASRC, while fulfilling the educational mission of the New York City Public University System at CUNY.
Opened in Fall 2014, the 200,000 ft2 CUNY ASRC offers a highly interactive and collaborative environment that integrates five disciplines: Neuroscience, Photonics, Structural Biology, Nanoscience and Environmental Sciences. Combining world-class experts in these areas with state-of-the-art instrumentation both in the building and within the New York City area, the ASRC offers a unique opportunity for new research programs to flourish and bridge conceptual gaps among traditionally disparate scientific areas.
Applicants should electronically submit 1) a curriculum vitae, 2) a 1-2 page cover letter summarizing research accomplishments and views on interdisciplinary research and 3) a brief (3 page max) description of proposed research. The names and contact information of 3 references should be listed on the application. Please submit all the material to the Neuroscience Initiative Search Committee c/o Kevin Wang, at Academic Jobs Online https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9095, Job# 9095. The first review of the applications is expected to be completed by August 31, 2017, but the search will remain open until all the available positions are filled.
