Assistant Research Professor - Non-tenure Track

The Wang lab at the Duke Neurobiology Department announces a Research Assistant Professor non-tenure track position, to start as early as January 1, 2019, for a minimum of 1 year, and renewable for additional years contingent on performance and funding. Position Description: Research in the Wang lab focuses on the neural circuit mechanisms underlying sensory perception and behaviors, including the processing and modulation of pain. One of our recently-funded research project centers on how the cortical representations of painful stimuli differs from innocuous touch, and on how these representations are modulated during chronic pain and by behavior. The successful applicant will be responsible for implementing and leading the imaging of the cortical signatures of pain at the cellular and mesoscale levels and will collaborate with other members of the Wang lab to elucidate the circuit mechanisms regulating pain perception. The successful applicant is also expected to expand the research program by seeking additional sources of funding.

Required Education, Experience and Skills: Candidates should have a PhD in Neuroscience or in related fields. Strong candidates will have an excellent track record of both written and oral communication, be capable of mentoring and supervising students, and be capable of working on grant development, including writing, and of obtaining independent funding. The ideal candidate will be proficient in intravital 2-photon microscopy, have strong quantitative analysis skills, be self-motivated and able to work independently, and have good interpersonal and organizational skills. Experience with wide-field imaging in vivo, longitudinal imaging and/or sensory neurophysiology is a plus.

Candidate should also submit at least three reference letters.
