Job Details

The Department of Neuroscience at Yale University seeks to hire new tenure track faculty members with interests in molecular, cellular, systems, cognitive, computational or theoretical neuroscience in health or disease. We are enthusiastic about candidates bridging between traditional conceptual or methodological boundaries, and candidates linking computation models with experimental data.

The successful candidates will be embedded in a richly collaborative community supporting intellectual creativity. The Yale Neuroscience Department realizes that the full potential of our research lies in the power that diverse perspectives bring to the field. We are working to foster an environment where individuals of any race, gender identity, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic class, sexual orientation, and geographical background feel supported and empowered to push forward the frontiers of neuroscience based on the principles of inclusivity, equity and belonging. We therefore strongly encourage applicants from historically minoritized backgrounds to apply.

The Department provides outstanding support to researchers via shared facilities such as microscopy and neurotechnology cores, and growing cores in iPSC biology and data science, as well as resources for nonhuman primate research.  The Department has just moved to new space optimized for modern science and maximal interaction and collaboration. New faculty will be supported by a generous start-up package and ongoing salary support.  Faculty are expected to develop a productive and innovative research program that will include the opportunity to participate in graduate and medical education.
