Open Faculty Positions

Assistant Professor of Neurobiology

Apply now Work type: University Tenure Line
Location: Stanford University
Categories: School of Medicine

The Department of Neurobiology at Stanford University invites applications for a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor in any area of neuroscience, broadly defined. In this position, you will enjoy dynamic colleagues and mentors in your academic department and the broader multidisciplinary community of the Wu Tsai Neuroscience Institute. In this context, you will develop an outstanding neuroscience research program and contribute to the education and mentoring of the next generation of scientists. 

  • The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching.

• Applicants are required to hold a doctoral degree in neuroscience, genetics, biochemistry, biophysics, bioengineering, cell biology or any related discipline, and we encourage applications from physician-scientists. 

• Individuals who have not had formal teaching experience should have demonstrated during their academic training a commitment to develop the skills necessary for first-rate teaching.

• We are particularly interested in individuals studying a broad range of problems in the nervous system at the molecular, cellular and circuit level. Your demonstrated skills as a researcher should be paired with a commitment to develop world-class communication, leadership, teaching and mentoring skills.

Individuals appointed as Assistant Professors in the UTL will have completed one or two years of postdoctoral research experience.  Their accomplishments during graduate and postgraduate training should already have stamped them as creative and promising investigators.  If these individuals have not had formal teaching experience, they should have demonstrated during their postdoctoral training a commitment to develop the skills necessary for first-rate teaching.  In short, the successful candidate must have demonstrated true distinction (or the promise of achieving true distinction) in research, and the capability of sustaining first-rate performance (or the promise of this) in teaching, and excellence in patient care (if applicable) appropriate to the programmatic need upon which the appointment is based.

The initial term of appointment will be four years.
