Three Positions in Integrative Neurobiology

The Department of Biology invites applications for three tenure-track Assistant Professor positions (subject to budgetary approval) in integrative neurobiology, spanning from the cell and molecular biology of neurons to animal behavior, starting in Fall 2014. Research themes of particular interest include: 1) integrative analyses of the formation, composition, plasticity, and function of neural circuits in studies of development, innate and learned behaviors, and disease states of the nervous system; 2) the mapping of brain activity in relation to behavior using cutting edge methods and technology; and 3) the molecular and cellular mechanisms that determine the patterning of neural circuit wiring. Applicants must have a PhD in a relevant field and are expected to have postdoctoral experience and a strong publication record. Responsibilities include establishing a research program with extramural funding, teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and participating in Biology and Neuroscience graduate programs. The successful candidates will join a strong and growing interdisciplinary Neuroscience research community at Boston University and will be offered newly renovated laboratory facilities, a competitive salary and start-up package.

Review of applications will begin 1 November 2013. Please use AcademicJobsOnline ( to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and three representative reprints, and arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted through the same website. Inquiries can be addressed to Michael Baum (, Chair, Neurobiology Search Committee.
