DIRECTOR, CENTER FOR MOLECULAR AND BEHAVIORAL NEUROSCIENCE, RUTGERS UNIVERSITY-NEWARK
The Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neurosciences (CMBN) at Rutgers, Newark was created a quarter of a century ago and has grown into a leading research center in Neuroscience, with a solid group of world-class faculty whose research spans systems, behavioral, and computational neuroscience, with methodological approaches as varied as electrophysiology, neuropharmacology, and functional imaging. Moreover, Neuroscience research on the Rutgers Newark campus is growing with hires in social and affective neuroscience in the Department of Psychology, cellular neuroscience in the Department of Biology, and the recent establishment of an interdepartmental Rutgers Brain Imaging Center.
CMBN is ready to move into a new era with new opportunities and a new vision. A number of faculty positions have opened up, and this presents an opportunity to rebuild and reconfigure CMBN. Rutgers Newark therefore invites applications for the position of Director of CMBN to guide this transition. We are seeking a world class leader in neuroscience to direct CMBN and to integrate the existing expertise and facilities into an even more impressive neuroscience community.
In addition to outstanding communication and interpersonal skills, candidates must have a PhD and/or MD degree, a sustained track record of distinguished scientific accomplishments and external grant funding in an area related to CMBN’s research interests, and a demonstrated commitment to excellence in post-graduate training. The Director will support the development of research activities at CMBN based on a clearly articulated scientific vision, and foster increased interactions with other Neuroscientists in the Psychology and Biology Departments of the Rutgers-Newark Campus. The Director is also expected to maintain a grant funded research program in his/her own laboratory, and play a key role in the recruitment of new faculty.
Professorial appointment with tenure will be made to the successful candidate. Salary is highly competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience. Rutgers University is an equal opportunity employer and encourages the applications from qualified women and minority candidates.
