Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS)
Department of Neurology and RWJMS Institute for Neurological Therapeutics
Neuroimmunology and Multiple Sclerosis Research Opportunity
The Department of Neurology and the RWJMS Institute for Neurological Therapeutics (RINT) invite applications for faculty positions to develop an innovative and interdisciplinary preclinical and translational research program in neurological diseases focused on neuroimmunologic and demyelinating disorders. Rank and tenure status will be determined based on candidate’s qualifications.
Current emphasis by the Neurology Department and Institute investigators includes Multiple Sclerosis and neuroimmunologic diseases, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Ample opportunities exist for collaborations with basic and clinical faculty at Rutgers-RWJMS and with investigators across Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences. An NIH funded T32 grant for Training in Translating Neuroscience to Therapeutics, led by the RINT director Dr. M. Maral Mouradian, supports eligible graduate students, MD / PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. The laboratories are housed in a state-of-the art research building located in the Piscataway, New Jersey campus. Rutgers provides competitive start-up packages and benefits.
Applicants must hold a PhD, MD or MD / PhD in Neuroscience, Neuroimmunology, Neurology or relevant discipline, have at least 2 years of postdoctoral training, and a record of scholarly achievement (publications in peer-reviewed journals). Candidates at the Assistant and Associate Professor levels will be considered. Successful candidates will be expected to maintain a productive extramurally funded research program and contribute to the training of postdoctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students.
Interested individuals are encouraged to apply by submitting a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research plans, and the contact information of three individuals who will provide letters of reference to:
