Full Time

Outstanding opportunities for faculty scientists at the assistant, associate and professor level exist in our new Center for Neural Science and Medicine (CNSM) at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Under the direction of Dr. Robert Baloh, MD, PhD, the Center brings together neuroscientists from across a range of departments and disciplines to facilitate collaborative efforts to improve our understanding of the nervous system. 

The mission of the newly formed CNSM is to define fundamental principles that underlie nervous system function in health and disease, and to harness those principles to develop transformative treatments for nervous system disorders. Specific focus areas include: Neural Injury, Degeneration and Neuroimmunology; Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience; Neurodevelopment and Neuroregeneration.

Successful candidates are expected to develop a cutting-edge independent research program.  We are deeply dedicated to maintaining a diverse and vibrant group of faculty interested in collaborating across boundaries to challenge dogma and drive paradigm change. 

In addition to recruiting high quality basic and physician scientists to leverage existing areas of strength in the neuroscience at Cedars- Sinai, the CNSM supports seed funding to enhance collaborative neuroscience efforts across campus, oversees neuroscience education for the Cedars-Sinai PhD program, a monthly seminar series and a yearly symposium in neuroscience. The Center’s mission is achieved in partnership with Neurology, Neurosurgery, Medicine, Pathology, Imaging, Biomedical Sciences and the Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute, and recruits will have joint appointments in one or more of these departments.

Cedars-Sinai Health System is among the nation’s leading providers of healthcare services, medical education and medical research, with total annual revenues of $3.3 billion, and is one of the largest non-profit academic medical centers in the U.S. In addition to a large research enterprise, comprising more than 1,500 research projects and a robust technology transfer portfolio, as well as highly sought-after training programs, including more than 400 medical residents and fellows, Cedars- Sinai is widely known for its national leadership in transforming healthcare for the benefit of patients. Cedars-Sinai is a teaching hospital for a variety of regional training programs including the Cedars-Sinai MS and PhD programs, and UCLA.
