The Vollum Institute (www.ohsu.edu/vollum) is undergoing an exciting phase of growth and announces multiple faculty openings for biomedical scientists. We are particularly interested in applicants whose research focuses on neuroscience-relevant topics such as molecular and cellular neuroscience, molecular genetics, circuits and systems in model organisms, structural biology, and glial biology to expand on our current research strengths.
Vollum appointments are full-time research positions within the Vollum Institute with minimal teaching or clinical requirements. Ample opportunities are available for collaboration with basic and clinical departments within the School of Medicine, and additional research units at OHSU (www.ohsu.edu) such as the Oregon Hearing Research Center (auditory neuroscience) and the Jungers Center (disease-related neuroscience).
