Rutgers University Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Care at New Jersey Medical Schools and Rutgers Brain Health Institute (BHI) seek to recruit outstanding federally funded faculty who will help execute our mission of building a world-class translational neuroscience research program in one of the leading academic medical centers in the United States. Openings will be filled at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The department is composed of basic and translational research scientists, clinician scientists, and clinicians working collaboratively on high-impact basic and clinical research. The scientific focus of the Department is on bench-to-bedside research to understand mechanisms of disease development, progression, and prevention in the areas of pain and addiction in the context of aging, cognitive function, metabolic disorders, neurodegeneration and nervous system injury.  Our goal is to translate research findings into novel therapeutic approaches. These research topics are also part of the four focus areas at BHI, which is the home for the overall Rutgers neuroscience initiative.  BHI is a growing interdisciplinary institute consisting of more than 270 principal investigators with neuroscience laboratories across various campuses of Rutgers University.

Applicants must have a Ph.D., MD, or equivalent doctoral degree, with demonstrated ability to lead an independent, federally funded program in neurodegeneration, drug addiction, and pain research. We offer substantial resources and outstanding core facilities to support these positions. Candidates applying for a position at the Assistant Professor level are expected to have K99/R00 grants or equivalent and develop a rigorous extramurally funded research program. Candidates at the Associate Professor level are expected to have an established federal grant portfolio that can be transferred to Rutgers. Rutgers values a culturally diverse faculty; we strongly encourage applications from female and minority candidates. Applications for these positions will be screened immediately.

Candidates on J-1 VISA are welcome to apply. The effective day of the appointment is May 1, 2024.   Direct Contact Information: Applicants should submit a 1-page letter of interest, current Curriculum Vitae including a complete list of publications, and a 3-page research statement to Alex Bekker, MD, Ph.D., Professor and Chair Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Care:
