BU Neuroscience Faculty Recruitment

Professor of Neurobiology

The Biology Department invites applications for a tenured faculty appointment in neurobiology at the rank of full professor. We are particularly interested in innovative researchers who integrate cell and molecular neurobiology with systems neuroscience to study basic questions in signaling, synaptic function, development or learning and memory, and their connections to organismal phenotypes. We seek a colleague with an international reputation and an outstanding record of research accomplishment who will serve as a leader in the future development of neurobiology in the department and the broader neuroscience community at Boston University.  Responsibilities include training graduate students as part of a vigorous research program with extramural funding and participation in undergraduate and graduate instruction. The successful candidate will be offered laboratory facilities in our new interdisciplinary Life Science & Engineering Building, a competitive salary, and generous start-up funding. Review of applications will begin 15 February 2012 and continue until the position is filled. Please use AcademicJobsOnline (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/1368) to submit your application. Inquiries can be addressed to Michael Baum (baum@bu.edu), Chair, Neurobiology Search Committee, or Michael Sorenson (msoren@bu.edu), Chair, Department of Biology.
