Tenure-track Faculty Position Department of Neurobiology, UMASS Medical School The Department of Neurobiology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, established in 2001, has assembled a group of outstanding faculty with a focus on the genetic, circuit, and molecular mechanisms of brain function. This group is unique in that it crosses many boundaries in the use of genetic model systems, including C. elegans Drosophila and mice, to study fundamental and interrelated areas in neuroscience including synapse development, function and plasticity, neural circuit development, maintenance and function, sensory transduction, glial cell biology and complex behaviors. The Department houses the Brudnick Neuropsychiatric Research Institute (BNRI) which seeks to elucidate the mechanistic bases underlying addiction, anxiety, and depression, as well as other neurodevelopmental and neurological disorders. The Department of Neurobiology serves as the administrative home for the interdepartmental Graduate Program in Neuroscience, with over 50 faculty members. The laboratories for the Department are housed on one floor of a state-of-the-art, 340,000 sq ft research building. The Department is initiating an important expansion of its research program. Thus, we solicit applications for a tenure-track position at all levels. We seek individuals of outstanding potential or demonstrated excellence in study of the nervous system. Specific areas of emphasis include, but are not limited to, cellular and molecular neuroscience, sensory processing, developmental neuroscience, brain physiology, circuit function, and behavior. The positions are highly competitive with regard to start-up funds, laboratory space, and salary. Rank will be commensurate with ability and experience.
