Tenured Full Professor: Neurology

The University of Chicago: Biological Sciences Division: Department of Neurology

Position Description

The University of Chicago's Department of Neurology, in collaboration with the Grossman Center for Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior, is searching for a faculty member to hold its Jack Miller Professorship. The appointee will conduct research that seeks a cure for peripheral neuropathy, especially idiopathic peripheral neuropathy, and will have a history of, and currently hold, extramural funding.         

This appointee will also lead the Neuromuscular Program and Section within the Department.  Specifically, the appointee will develop strategic plans for the growth of the Neuromuscular Program, direct operations on the Hyde Park campus, and oversee expansion to off-sites within UChicago Medicine’s health care system. Clinical effort will be minimal and dependent on research effort commitment but will likely include seeing neuromuscular patients in the ambulatory clinic and inpatient general neurology service weeks.

The appointee must qualify for appointment as full professor with tenure.  Compensation (including a generous package of fringe benefits) is dependent on qualifications. 

The University is a vibrant center of scientific discovery and innovation, and opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration are abundant, both within and outside the Biological Sciences Division. The Division, other academic units of the University, and the University of Chicago Medical Center, are all contained within the compact campus in Hyde Park. Appointees will have access to state-of-the-art core facilities and to outstanding colleagues and graduate students affiliated with numerous degree-granting programs within and outside the biological sciences. 

Prior to the start of employment, qualified applicants must have: 1) a PhD in neurosciences, genetics or an equivalent area OR a medical doctorate or equivalent, 2) if an MD, hold or be eligible for medical licensure in the State of Illinois and be board certified or eligible in Neurology.
