The Department of Neurological Surgery at The Ohio State University College of Medicine is initiating a search for multiple tenure track faculty positions; positions are available at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor levels. The position works closely with translational scientists in basic science departments, with opportunity for joint or courtesy appointment in the Department of Neuroscience. The Department of Neurosurgery is innovating in translational neuroscience approaches to treat neurodegenerative and vascular brain diseases. Successful applicants will join a rapidly growing research environment dedicated to translating laboratory discoveries through preclinical basic science characterization to first in human clinical testing. The Ohio State University and the Department of Neurosurgery have newly organized research centers in cerebrovascular biology, neuroregeneration and gene therapy. These Institutes have strong institutional support and are building a multi-disciplinary, collaborative research environment to rapidly advance therapies to treat disease. Individuals with research interests in neuroscience (cognitive and behavioral, cell signaling, glial biology, neuro vascular, etc.), cerebrovascular biology, ischemic stroke, neuro-immunology, coagulation/fibrinolysis, neurophysiology and/or novel gene therapy approaches (viral, non-viral) to manipulate brain function in health and disease are encouraged to apply.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D degree, post-doctoral training, a commitment to basic and/or translational neuroscience, and a history of strong research productivity. Individuals will be evaluated on their ability to establish innovative independent research programs as well as develop collaborative areas of focus with existing programs. Any questions can be directed to the chair of the search, Dr. Paco Herson, through Dr. James Orfila at James.Orfila@osumc.edu.
Applications should include a Research Statement detailing planned independent research program, description of previous research experience and a detailed curriculum vitae (CV).
