Position description

The Department of Neurosciences (http://neurosciences.ucsd.edu/) at the University of California San Diego is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff and student body and is recruiting for faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor levels.

UCSD Neurosciences is a leader in basic and clinical research into the cause, effects, and treatment of neurological diseases and disorders as well as spinal cord injuries, brain tumors/defects, and cross disciplinary collaborative research. This is a tradition made possible by the vision and collaborative spirit of a large and diverse body of neuroscientists and strong partnerships with scientists from other academic and research institutions including, but not limited to, the Salk Institute, The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), and the Sanford-Burnham Institute.

The Department provides excellent opportunities for teaching, mentorship and other patient care/academic interest opportunities with time dedicated to teaching and scholarly activity at one of the nation's top-ranked Medical Schools and one of the most academically productive Departments of Neurosciences in the country.

The successful research scientist candidates will have the opportunity to develop extramurally funded research programs on the cutting edge and to provide leadership in neuroscience research. The candidates will also have the opportunity to work with a large group of scientists and clinicians including those through NIH-funded centers in the UCSD Department of Neurosciences.

Candidates will be responsible for providing high quality training and teaching and will participate in basic or translational research and/or the clinical care of patients.

The appropriate series and appointment will be based on the candidate’s background and experience.
