The University of Minnesota has launched a major initiative to establish a Medical Discovery Team focused on the development and application of cutting-edge optical technologies for neuroscience, such as in-vivo multiphoton stimulation and recording. This multi-disciplinary team will be well-poised to map the detailed circuits that underlie sensation, perception and complex behaviors in the developing and mature brain.
We currently seek candidates for tenured (Associate or Full Professor) faculty positions who are using these new technologies to link neural circuits with behavior in any of the variety of animal model systems available, including marmosets and macaques. Applicants who invent physical tools (optical or protein engineering) to probe brain function are also encouraged to apply.
Candidates will have a PhD, MD/PhD or similar degree in neuroscience, biophysics, biomedical engineering or a related discipline. Applicants at the Associate or Full professor level should also demonstrate notable scientific contributions and sustained extramural support. Candidates must be U.S. citizens or be able to secure permanent residence status.
