Neuroscience Open-rank Faculty Positions
The Department of Integrative Physiology and Neuroscience (IPN) at Washington State University in Pullman, WA is seeking two outstanding academic scientists to fill full-time, tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant/Associate/Full Professor. The positions are permanent, 75% state-funded, 12-month appointments.
Ideal candidates are expected to develop and maintain innovative, extramurally funded research programs in neuroscience that complement and enhance current faculty scholarship in food intake/energy homeostasis, drug addiction, sensory biology, circadian rhythms/sleep, synaptic plasticity, neurodegenerative disease, or biophysics (additional details at: https://ipn.vetmed.wsu.edu/research). Preference for one position will be a scientist with strengths in molecular/cellular approaches, and preference for the other position will be a scientist with strengths in circuit/systems level approaches.
Requirements: Applicants must have one of the following degrees: a PhD in neuroscience or similar biological/biomedical field, and/or an MD, DVM, or equivalent professional degree. Applicants for a position at associate/full professor rank must have an established extramurally funded independent research program, and a record of peer-reviewed publications and national/international recognition commensurate with position rank. Applicants for a position at assistant professor rank should demonstrate potential to establish and maintain an externally funded research program (peer-reviewed publications and developed research agenda). Minimum of two years of research experience after doctoral degree.
Duties: Maintain an externally funded research program capable of supporting graduate students and/or post-doctoral trainees. Classroom teaching duties will include instruction in academic programs supported by IPN (undergraduate neuroscience, graduate neuroscience, and/or professional veterinary program). Must be able to communicate effectively and work in a highly collegial and collaborative environment with a diverse population of colleagues and students.
Environment: Washington State University has a vibrant neuroscience community and is located in a region having a high quality of life for those who enjoy the outdoors, the arts, and the collegiality of diverse neighbors. Generous start-up packages will be provided. Laboratory space is available in a modern research building designed for neuroscience research containing numerous shared resources.
Salary and rank: Dependent upon qualifications.
Timeline: Screening of applications will begin November 4, 2019. The application must include the following: a cover letter which states desired rank for consideration, curriculum vita, description of teaching experience and philosophy (1 page), summary of research interests and goals (up to 3 pages), and names and contact information (including email addresses) for three references.
