|Essential Job Duties||
The Department of Biological Sciences in the College of Sciences at North Carolina State University seeks outstanding candidates for two tenure-track faculty positions in neurobiology at the preferred rank of Assistant Professor, although exceptional candidates for Associate Professor will be considered.
Applicants should have a doctoral degree and relevant postdoctoral experience. We are seeking candidates who employ cutting-edge and innovative approaches that build on existing strengths in our growing interdepartmental and intercollegiate neuroscience community and that can bridge with departmental expertise in genetics and environmental health. Candidates pursuing research in all areas of neurobiology are encouraged to apply, and there is particular interest in candidates with expertise in computational and systems neuroscience, glial biology, neurophysiology, and neuroethology.
Candidates studying standard or nontraditional model organisms and/or natural populations are encouraged to apply. The successful candidates will be expected to develop and/or maintain extramurally funded, nationally recognized, independent research programs and also support the academic mission of the department including undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral training programs. Inclusiveness and diversity are critical to the success of the Department and University as a whole; the new faculty member will be expected to actively contribute to a community that is respectful, inclusive, and welcoming of all groups.
We encourage applications from candidates who identify as members of groups that are underrepresented in neuroscience. Support will include competitive start-up packages, laboratory space, and an interactive research environment. NC State University provides a vibrant environment for research, teaching, and mentoring across disciplines. Rich opportunities exist for collaborations with faculty in the Department and across our campus. Our location in the Research Triangle facilitates interaction with faculty at other institutions as well as with industry and government agencies. You will be expected to foster an environment that is supportive and welcoming of all groups.
