Two Faculty Positions in Neuroscience
The Department of Neuroscience at the University of Minnesota Medical School is seeking candidates for tenure-track (Assistant Professor) and tenured (Associate or Full Professor) faculty appointments. The department spans a wide range of research questions with a proven dedication to team science and collaborative work.
For these positions, we are particularly interested in individuals whose research programs incorporate non-human primates, computational models, and/or innovative imaging or electrophysiological approaches. The overall vision is to promote synergy across disciplines in our medical school to advance foundational science and discovery as well as preclinical research. Basic scientists from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, including neuroscience, physics, engineering, pharmacology, psychology, chemistry, biology, and computational science are encouraged to apply.
Strengths at the University of Minnesota include: the internationally-recognized Center for Magnetic Resonance Research - at the forefront of the Human Connectome project and the development and application of ultra-high field MR (10.5 T and and above); the Institute for Therapeutics Discovery and Development with the resources and expertise to develop new drug therapies; the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, which provides resources to implement new treatment strategies and is a conduit to promote the community-wide understanding and application of scientific discoveries; the MnDRIVE initiative, which supports research and translation relevant to neuromodulation for brain conditions; the UMN Viral Vector and Cloning Core, which allows onsite vector production and development; and the UMN Imaging Center, which is a Nikon Center of Excellence. The Department of Neuroscience also leads the Medical Discovery Team (MDT) on Addiction and the Medical Discovery Team (MDT) on Optical Imaging - two world-class, neuroscience-based programs that have established many interdisciplinary and collaborative new laboratories at UMN. Minnesota is also the home of multiple biomedical research companies and world-renowned hospitals. The University of Minnesota is dedicated to improving diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice, and the Department of Neuroscience has developed a number of programs in this area.
Candidates must have a PhD and/or MD degree and must be a US citizen or be able to secure permanent resident status. Candidates with non-traditional backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Formal review of applications will begin March 1st, 2023 and will continue until both positions are filled. Applicants should include a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of their research interests and future directions, and names (with contact information) for three references.
