Tenure-Track Neuroscience Position

The Brudnick Neuropsychiatric Research Institute (BNRI), established as part of the unprecedented research expansion at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the level of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor. The BNRI, a division of the Department of Psychiatry, is committed to broad-based research investigating basic neurobiological principles related to psychiatric disorders. While we invite applications from all areas of neuroscience, we are particularly interested in applicants using electrophysiological approaches in mammalian systems to investigate mechanisms underlying neuronal plasticity. The BNRI, situated in a state-of-the-art laboratory facility, is an integral part of the campus-wide Program in Neuroscience, which consists of over 55 basic neuroscientists. The successful candidate will establish and/or maintain an independent research program and play an integral role in new Program initiatives. The position is highly competitive with regard to salary, start-up funds and laboratory space.
Applicants should send a CV, statement of research interests, and names and addresses of three references by June 15th, 2009 to:
