Duke University invites applications for up to 2 tenure-track faculty positions in the Department of Neurobiology. In the academic year 2018-19, appointments may be at any level, though at least one appointment probably will be as Assistant Professor. Research programs may use approaches from molecular and cellular to systems and computational neuroscience to ask questions about the nervous system in health and disease. For one of the positions, we will favor applicants who are studying neurobiological mechanisms relevant to brain resilience and repair in wildtype or disease-model animals. For the other position we seek applicants with exceptional accomplishments and promise in any area of neurobiology. Applicants using any model organism are encouraged.  

Successful candidates will have track records of creativity and productivity, demonstrated potential for outstanding future achievements, and a desire to participate in an exciting, interactive, and growing community. They will be expected to mount a productive and innovative research program, to obtain outside funding, and to participate actively in graduate education. Candidates must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree. Qualified women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply. 

For full consideration, applications should be submitted by October 1, 2018, although applications will be considered until the positions are filled.  Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a brief summary of current and proposed research (maximum 3 pages), reprints of 3 key publications, and 3 letters of recommendation.

Questions may be directed to Stephen Lisberger, Chair of the Department of Neurobiology, LISBERGER@NEURO.DUKE.EDU
