The Rutgers Brain Health Institute (http://brainhealthinstitute.rutgers.edu/) is recruiting a tenure-track faculty at the Assistant Professor level who studies mechanisms related to Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or associated dementias. The ideal candidate would use modern electrophysiological, optogenetic or chemogenetic approaches to characterize changes in synaptic function in animal models that contribute to the memory or other cognitive declines observed in AD/Dementia. Applicants must have a PhD, MD or equivalent degree; external research funding is also desired. In addition to a strong funded research program, quality of research and fit with other strengths at Rutgers are important considerations (see BHI website). We offer a competitive salary and an excellent start-up package. Rutgers offers tremendous collaborative opportunities with over 250 neuroscience faculty labs engaged in basic, clinical and translational research, and proximity to New York, Princeton and Philadelphia neuroscience communities. We also offer strong core facilities to support and grow an active research program. Applicants should submit a CV, statement of research accomplishments and plans, and names of at least three references to Dr. Luciano D’Adamio, Director of the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, a component of the Rutgers Brain Health Institute, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

About Rutgers Brain Health Institute
The goal of the Brain Health Institute (BHI) is to develop neuroscience at Rutgers to become a highly translational and internationally preeminent research enterprise. New tools are transforming neuroscience, and these afford an unprecedented opportunity to create new treatments for central nervous system disorders. Neuroscience has been identified by Rutgers University as one of five signature areas for future focus and development. As part of this strategic plan, the BHI was established to become an internationally recognized center for basic, translational, and clinical research into the biological bases of human brain function and dysfunction. The BHI is the home for the overall Rutgers neuroscience initiative, and is a growing interdisciplinary institute consisting of more than 250 principal investigators with neuroscience laboratories across various campuses of Rutgers University and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences.
