The Department of Biological Sciences in the College of Science at Marshall University is seeking candidates for two full-time tenure-track faculty positions at the level of Assistant Professor. Applicants must have a PhD in neuroscience, biology, or a related field, at least two years of relevant postdoctoral experience, and a research program in the general area of neural plasticity.

These positions are partially funded through the NSF EPSCoR Track I award “West Virginia Network for Functional Neuroscience and Transcriptomics (WV-NFNT)”. WV-NFNT will help build inter-institutional capacity for investigating synaptic and circuit plasticity through high resolution structure-function techniques, specifically super resolution microscopy and spatial transcriptomics. New hires and capability will expand on existing strengths in neuroscience, imaging, and -omics science. The successful candidates will join a growing and dynamic team of scientists and educators, and will be expected to become part of the WV-NFNT team linking institutions across the state. We are interested in several research foci and model organisms within the broad WV-NFNT scope, in particular research related to immune function, metabolic regulation and dysregulation, and responses to exogenous drugs or other stimuli.

Teaching responsibilities will be in the department’s general education and core courses, along with development or redesign of upper level and graduate courses in the candidates’ fields of interest. We are particularly interested in candidates with qualifications and a desire to teach immunology, metabolism, or histology, along with neuroscience-related topics.

Our Department and College value a commitment to excellent teaching and research. The successful candidates must have demonstrated the ability to develop a strong independent and collaborative research program involving undergraduate and graduate students, and a commitment to enthusiastic, innovative, and inclusive teaching. We welcome applications from women and historically underrepresented groups.
