The Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine, North Carolina State University is recruiting a tenure-track faculty member (open rank) in translational neuroscience research to build on existing strengths in our growing interdepartmental and intercollegiate neuroscience community (https://research.ncsu.edu/neurosciences/). We are seeking candidates who employ cutting-edge and innovative approaches that bridge disciplines. There is particular interest in areas of neural development, circuits and behavior, neuroimmunology, aging, and iPSC modeling of neurological diseases. Preference will be given to individuals whose research has a tangible impact on animal and human patients with neurological diseases. The new faculty will be expected to possess or establish (based on rank) an extramurally funded program with national recognition.
The successful candidate will have a fantastic opportunity to actively engage veterinary clinician-scientists at our highly rated Veterinary Medical Hospital (https://cvm.ncsu.edu/research/labs/clinical-sciences/). The hospital has state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic capacities including a 3T MRI and stereotactic biopsy systems. Our faculty collaborate closely with the human medical groups within the Research Triangle in North Carolina (Duke University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and local industry) and are supported by the Clinical Studies Core of the Comparative Medicine Institute (https://research.ncsu.edu/cmi/) to complete clinical trials.
This position receives full state salary support (12 month) from the College of Veterinary Medicine and NC State University.
