The Department of Neuroscience at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, MA, is hiring for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level. We are interested in recruiting applicants who complement or enhance our core strengths and research focus on epilepsy, synaptic excitation and inhibition, neuron-glial interactions, neurodegenerative disorders, neuroinflammation, and neuromodulators, using animal and/or human iPSC-derived cellular models.
We seek candidates who use innovative approaches to investigate problems that cross levels of investigation from molecular and cellular to circuits, systems, and/or behavioral neuroscience. Candidates using molecular, genetic, proteomic, imaging, and/or electrophysiological methodologies to study neurons, glia, synapses, and networks in healthy and disease states are particularly encouraged to apply. We offer generous start-up packages, newly renovated laboratory space, excellent shared cores for imaging and behavioral testing, mentorship by senior faculty, and a highly collaborative environment offering opportunities for both basic and translational research.
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and have several years of productive postdoctoral experience. Successful candidates will be expected to develop thriving, well-funded research programs and participate in graduate and medical student teaching and mentoring. We highly encourage applications from women, underrepresented minorities, and individuals committed to mentoring underrepresented groups in the sciences. Tufts University supports several pipeline programs which provide opportunities for underrepresented students interested in the fields of medicine and biomedical sciences, including the Pathway to Ph.D. (P2P) program, Building Diversity in Biomedical Sciences (BDBS) program, and the Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP). https://medicine.tufts.edu/local-global-engagement/pipeline-programs
