The Section of Neurobiology in the Division of Biological Sciences at the University of California San Diego (www.biology.ucsd.edu) has two faculty open positions: one in Computational and Theoretical Neuroscience at the tenure-track Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level, and one in the broad area of Neural Circuit Studies at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level.
For the computational and theoretical neuroscience opening, candidates who investigate the function and dynamics of neuronal circuits by the development of mathematical models, computer simulations, or novel approaches to data analysis and information processing are encouraged to apply. Solely theoretical research programs as well as those with a wet-lab component will be considered.
For the neural circuits opening candidates should employ state-of-art technologies to address fundamental questions related to the development, function and disease of the nervous system.
Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on University of California pay scales.
The faculty of our Section are engaged in a number of areas of neuroscience research, including molecular/cellular/developmental neurobiology, neural circuit mechanisms, and systems and behavioral neuroscience. The new faculty members will enjoy rich intellectual interactions with highly supportive and interactive colleagues.
