The Department of Physiology
University of Maryland School of Medicine
We invite outstanding scientists to apply for a tenure-track faculty position with an emphasis on cellular and molecular neuroscience. The expected rank is Assistant Professor or higher, with rank and tenure status dependent on the candidate’s qualifications.
Neuroscience is a vital strength of the School of Medicine and is deeply represented in numerous basic science and clinical research departments. Indeed, a joint appointment in a clinical department is feasible, commensurate with shared research interests. Strengths of the current faculty include the molecular and cellular basis of synaptic transmission, excitability, ion channels, depression, schizophrenia, and reward.
The Department of Physiology is renowned for its research excellence. Our internationally recognized faculty lead cutting-edge research programs in molecular, cellular, and systems neurobiology. Additionally, the University of Maryland campus offers state-of-the-art core facilities for microscopy, imaging, genetics, genomics, proteomics, and structural biology, along with the NeuroBioBank brain repository. NIH-funded training programs in neuroscience, integrative membrane biology, and muscle biology, cardiac biology, and vascular biology enhance our research activities.
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and have a strong history of scholarly activity and collaboration. The successful candidate will develop an independent and funded research program that complements existing faculty strengths and provides exciting new opportunities for collaborative work.
Qualified candidates should submit as one PDF file a CV, a one page summary of past research accomplishments, a 2-3 page statement of future research goals, and a teaching portfolio by November 29th.
We value diversity and how it enriches our academic and scientific community and strive toward cultivating an inclusive environment that supports all employees. We strongly encourage applications from members of groups that are underrepresented in science.
