Multiple Faculty Positions in Human Brain Imaging at the Rutgers Brain Health Institute

Job Details

The Center for Advanced Human Brain Imaging Research (CAHBIR), a component of the Rutgers Brain Health Institute (BHI) on the Busch campus in Piscataway, NJ, is recruiting for multiple faculty positions at all levels (Assistant/Associate/Professor). We seek investigators who use innovative MRI approaches to image human brain structure and function. Individuals who utilize additional approaches such as EEG, tDCS and rTMS to study human brain function would also be attractive. Applicants must have a doctoral degree, and a research program with currently active federal funding. Applicants with an MD or MD/PhD are particularly encouraged to apply. Quality of research and fit within one or more of the four focus areas of BHI are important criteria. Ideal applicants would have federally funded research programs in neurology, neurosurgery, pediatrics, otolaryngology, or other clinical departments. We offer a highly competitive salary and an excellent start-up package.


With over 300 neuroscience faculty labs engaged in basic and clinical research, and proximity to New York, Princeton and Philadelphia neuroscience communities, the BHI and CAHBIR offers tremendous collaborative opportunities and core facilities to support and grow an active research program. Outstanding core facilities will support this position, including a new research-dedicated 3T Siemens Prisma MRI scanner, EEG and TMS facilities and a human behavioral testing core developed and operated in collaboration with Princeton University. CAHBIR provides an intellectual focal point for Rutgers researchers conducting basic and translational research on the human brain in health and disease. Our faculty intersect with key BHI centers at Rutgers, including the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Research Center, the Addiction Research Center, and the Center for Autism Research, Education and Services. In addition, the Rutgers-Princeton Center for Cognitive Computational Neuropsychiatry (CCNP) and the Rutgers University Center for Cognitive Science (RuCCS) carry out interdisciplinary research in cognitive science employing cognitive and computational approaches to understand brain function. With the Rutgers Institute for Translational Medicine and Science, an active NIH CTSA, and affiliation with Barnabas Health, the largest hospital network in the state of New Jersey, Rutgers offers unique opportunities for participant recruitment and clinical trials to speed the translation of research discoveries into improved patient care.


New Jersey is a progressive state with a highly diverse population, and Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, values a culturally diverse faculty; we strongly encourage applications from female and underrepresented minority candidates. Applicants should submit a CV and statement of research accomplishments and plans, to Dr. David Zald, Director of CAHBIR and Chair of the search committee, at Applications can also be submitted to- .

The goal of the Brain Health Institute (BHI) is to develop neuroscience at Rutgers to become a highly translational and internationally preeminent research enterprise. New tools are transforming neuroscience, and these afford an unprecedented opportunity to create new treatments for central nervous system disorders. Neuroscience has been identified by Rutgers University as one of five signature areas for future focus and development. As part of this strategic plan, the BHI was established to become an internationally recognized center for basic, translational, and clinical research into the biological bases of human brain function and dysfunction. The BHI is the home for the overall Rutgers neuroscience initiative, and is a growing interdisciplinary institute consisting of more than 250 principal investigators with neuroscience laboratories across various campuses of Rutgers University and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences.
