The Department of Pediatrics and the Medical University South Carolina at Charleston is accepting applications for an Endowed Chair for Basic Research in Childhood Neurological Disorders at the rank of a Professor supported by a SmartState Award from the Center of Economic Excellence (COEE), State of South Carolina. We are seeking an outstanding basic research scientist with expertise in disease mechanisms and therapeutic approaches for childhood diseases of the nervous system who would complement and expand existing programs at MUSC. The applicant should have a terminal degree (Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D. or M.D.) with appropriate research expertise in neurosciences. The candidate should have a national reputation, an outstanding track record of high quality publications and a strong record of extramural funded research.

The Endowed Chair will have the benefit of a significant programmatic and departmental startup package and laboratory space in the newly built Darby Children’s Research Institute (DCRI) housed with state of art shared Lipidomics and Proteomics core facilities. The interdepartmental children’s research program supports a highly collaborative environment with opportunities for both basic and translational research.

MUSC is located in Charleston, SC, a city noted for its historical, cultural and recreational attractions with a temperate climate and beautiful beaches. Charleston is consistently given top honors as a most desirable place to live. Charleston’s Academic Magnet High School was ranked the #1 magnet high school in the State and #10 in the country by US News and World Report.

Interested scientists should submit a CV, summary of research interests, and contact information for three references to Inderjit Singh, PhD, Scientific Director of DCRI and Chief, Division of Developmental Neurogenetics, (singhi@musc.edu), or to Andrew Atz, MD, Acting Chair, Department of Pediatrics, (atzam@musc.edu).
