The Mayo Clinic Department Neurosurgery and the Center for Regenerative Medicine are recruiting an outstanding biomedical scientist with expertise applicable to neurosurgery and regenerative medicine such as neuro-oncology, spinal neurosurgery, epilepsy/functional neurosurgery, neuro-vascular disease, neuro-trauma, or peripheral nerve disease. The candidate will have a PhD or equivalent degree in a relevant discipline, with a track record of success in extramural funding, publications, and collaboration with clinicians. Ideal candidates would be those with scientific expertise in areas that are broadly applicable to neurosurgical disorders (e.g. regenerative sciences, genomics, cellular biology, neuro-imaging, or neural engineering) and for whom placement in a clinical neurosurgical department would lead to synergy with multiple PI’s both within and beyond Neurosurgery and the Center for Regenerative Medicine. Applicants may be at the Assistant Professor, Associate
Professor or full Professor level.

Expectations for successful candidates include establishment of a robust translational research laboratory focused on neurosurgical disease approached from a regenerative scope, engagement with clinicians within the Department and investigators in the Center of Regenerative Medicine to facilitate translational projects, and participation in department-wide research programs. These programs include but are not limited to supervising research trainees (undergraduate, professional, graduate, and post-graduate), engagement with department and institutional resources for translational studies, and technology commercialization. The successful candidate will engage with the departmental biobank/clinical registry, Center for Regenerative Medicine translational platforms, and departmental research education initiatives (enfolded PhD training for residents, training grants). They will be expected to participate in the department’s research committee and must demonstrate commitment to
an inclusive and collaborative culture and values-driven leadership.

Applications should include a CV, cover letter, statement of research interests, and contact information of 3-5 references.
