Major topics of interest include, but are not limited to, genetics, epigenetics and molecular mechanisms of neural development, neuroimmune biology, and circuit development and plasticity. We are interested in applicants that use cutting-edge molecular-genetic technologies or brain imaging to study important questions in the field of neurodevelopment. Applicants should have a PhD and/or MD with appropriate research expertise and are expected to possess an outstanding record of high-quality publications, a strong potential to secure extramural research funding, and a clear commitment to promoting workplace diversity in all its forms.

Successful candidates will benefit from a competitive start-up package in a basic science department that consistently ranks in the top 10 in NIH awards and has a strong commitment to faculty mentoring and collegiality. The research-oriented department comprises a successful PhD graduate program, two NIH-funded T32 training grants for pre- and postdoctoral scholars, and two NIH Center grants.
