NTC Faculty Position in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology
We invite applications for faculty positions in the area of neuroscience/ neurotechnology, with a focus on cellular and developmental neuroscience. Successful candidates will be expected to establish a vigorous, innovative and independent research program and participate in teaching. They will join a highly interactive, interdisciplinary group of faculty, students, and fellows, who investigate many aspects of cell and developmental biology. The neuroscience research in the department includes investigations on glial cells, ion channels and taste and smell sensory systems.
This recruitment will be in conjunction with the new NeuroTechnology Center at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. (https://medschool.cuanschutz.edu/neurotechnologycenter ) This Neurotechnology Center supports research moving neuroscience forward through new technology. Thus, the successful candidate will use and develop novel approaches to investigations of nervous system development and function.
The neuroscience community at the University of Colorado School of Medicine is very diverse. Faculty in several of the basic science departments and multiple clinical departments are actively involved in basic and disease-focused research. Additionally there is a strong interdepartmental Neuroscience Graduate Program (https://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/programs/Neuroscience/Pages/Neuroscience.aspx ). This graduate program currently has almost 50 graduate students, in laboratories in basic science and clinical departments.
The Department of Cell and Developmental Biology is one of six basic science departments in the School of Medicine on the Anschutz Medical Campus at the University of Colorado. New faculty will join a growing enterprise with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities on the Anschutz Medical Campus (please visit ( http://www.medschool.ucdenver.edu/cdb ). This campus opened 15 years ago and continues to build new research and clinical buildings, along with a growing bioscience park.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and have a strong record of research accomplishments.
Tenure Track Faculty Position in the Department of Pharmacology
The Department of Pharmacology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine Anschutz Medical Campus is seeking applicants to fill a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant, Associate, or Professor level in the area ofneuroscience/neurotechnology with a focus on candidates developing and/or leveraging novel optical imaging tools and methods to understand nervous system function. The research of the applicant should emphasize molecular, cellular and circuit mechanisms that are broadly related to understanding human nervous system diseases and/or the actions of existing drugs or the development of new drugs and therapies to treat neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. In particular, we seek applicants whose research would complement our existing strengths in neuropharmacology studying regulation of neurotransmitter receptors, ion channels, cell adhesion molecules, kinase and phosphatase signal transduction, and gene expression in control of neuronal function in normal learning and memory, as well as in neurodegeneration, ischemic brain injury, intellectual disability, schizophrenia, autism, and addiction.
This recruitment will be in conjunction with the new NeuroTechnology Center (NTC) at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. https://medschool.cuanschutz.edu/neurotechnologycenter One of the central missions of the NTC is to recruit faculty whose research is focused on developing, adapting, and implementing novel technologies to study nervous system function (both basic and translational). In this search we are in particular seeking applicants who use and develop novel molecular and cellular imaging methods, tools and approaches,including optical sensors and probes, to study nervous system function in vitro, ex vivo and/or in vivo.
Applicants must have a PhD and/or MD degree and appropriate and sufficient post-doctoral experience to establish and/or maintain an independent research program competitively funded by extramural grant support. Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2019 and continue until the position is filled. Applicants should submit a CV, 2-3 publication reprints or unpublished manuscript preprints that have been posted on BioRxv or similar sites, a 2-3 page statement of research interests and future directions, and contact information for 3 references by applying at: https://cu.taleo.net/careersection/2/jobdetail.ftl?job=17431&lang=en
