The Department of Neuroscience at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, MA is expanding by adding two tenure-track faculty positions. Appointments will be at the Assistant Professor level. We are interested in enhancing our core strengths and research focus on epilepsy, neurodegenerative disorders, neuro-inflammation, neuron-glial interactions and human iPSC-derived cellular models.
We are seeking candidates who use innovative approaches to investigate problems that cross levels of investigation from molecular and cellular to systems and/or behavioral neuroscience. Candidates using molecular, genetic, electrophysiological and/or imaging methodologies to study neurons, glia, synapses and networks in healthy and disease states are particularly encouraged to apply. We offer generous start-up packages, newly renovated laboratory space, mentorship by senior faculty, and a highly collaborative environment offering opportunities for both basic and translational research.
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and have several years of productive postdoctoral experience. Successful candidates will be expected to develop thriving, well-funded research programs, and to participate in graduate and medical student teaching and mentoring. We highly encourage applications from women, underrepresented minorities, and individuals committed to mentoring underrepresented groups in the sciences. Tufts University supports several pipeline programs which provide opportunities for underrepresented students interested in the fields of medicine and biomedical sciences, including the Pathway to PhD (P2P) program, Building Diversity in Biomedical Sciences (BDBS) program, and the Post-Baccalaureate Research Program (PREP). https://medicine.tufts.edu/local-global-engagement/pipeline-programs
