Two Tenure-track Faculty Positions


My department has two open faculty positions in Neuroscience.  We would welcome applicants that are studying the auditory system.
University of Colorado School of Medicine
Department of Physiology and Biophysics

As part of an institutional initiative to expand neuroscience research on campus, we are seeking to fill two tenure-eligible faculty positions. One appointee will be in systems neuroscience. For this position, we especially encourage applicants who use computational approaches and/or innovative experimental techniques in electrophysiology, photonics, and bioengineering. The second appointee should employ cellular and molecular approaches to study the function of excitable cells or their intercellular communication. Both appointees should have research interests that complement and extend existing research in the Department (www.medschool.ucdenver.edu/physiology). We expect appointees to conduct vigorous independent research and participate in professional and graduate teaching and training. Rank is open and will depend on qualifications.

This faculty search by the Department of Physiology and Biophysics is being done in conjunction with two additional faculty searches in neuroscience by the Departments of Cell and Developmental Biology and Pharmacology. This joint effort, which is being coordinated by the Center for NeuroScience (www.medschool.ucdenver.edu/CNS), means that the new Physiology appointees will be part of a rapidly growing neuroscience community. Interactions between faculty in different Departments on campus, including basic science and translational collaborations, occur naturally and are facilitated by various interdepartmental programs and centers. These include the Neuroscience Program (www.medschool.ucdenver.edu/neuroscience), with ~70 affiliated faculty and ~30 graduate students. The Center for NeuroScience and an NINDS P30 grant sponsor state-of-the-art core facilities that include light and electron microscopy, rodent and zebrafish gene manipulation, and a machine shop. Behavior and optogenetics core facilities are also available. 

Applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and appropriate and sufficient post-doctoral research experience to establish an independent research program and obtain funding. Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2014 and will continue until the positions are filled. 

The University of Colorado offers a full benefits package. Information on University benefits programs, including eligibility, is located at www.cu.edu/employee-services.

Applicants should apply online at www.jobsatcu.com, refer to job posting F01656. The direct link is www.jobsatcu.com:80/postings/86921. Required application materials include:
1) A cover letter that outlines qualifications for the position
2) A current Curriculum Vitae
3) The names, addresses, daytime telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses for at least three references
4) A 2-3 page statement of research interests and plans
Requests for reference letters will be sent via system-generated e-mails to the references after candidates submit their applications. 

Questions should be directed to Robert.Stiner@xxxxxxxxxxxx. 

The University of Colorado School of Medicine is dedicated to ensuring a safe and secure environment for our faculty, staff, students, and visitors. To assist in achieving that goal, we conduct background investigations for all prospective employees prior to their employment. 

The University of Colorado strongly supports the principle of diversity. We encourage applications from women, ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, and all veterans. The University of Colorado is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment.
