Tenure-Track Faculty Position

Open Rank, Including an Endowed Chair

Cellular, Molecular Auditory Neuroscience

Department of Otolaryngology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

The Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine seeks to fill an open rank, full-time, tenure-track position in auditory neuroscience.  Faculty rank (Assistant, Associate or Professor level) will be determined by and commensurate with qualifications and experience.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD, MD/PhD or MD degree and will have research interests relevant to the auditory system. We are seeking exceptional scientists to establish vigorous independent research programs and promote synergy between basic and translational research.  For this search, candidates performing research related to hearing restoration, including hair cell and auditory nerve regeneration or prevention of degeneration, at the cellular or molecular level are especially encouraged to apply. However, exceptional candidates with interests relevant to cellular, molecular or genetic mechanisms in normal or pathological auditory processing will also be considered. A very generous start-up package is available. Moreover, an Endowed Chair is available to support a senior candidate with an extraordinary record of accomplishments.

The faculty position is within the vibrant and highly interactive basic and clinical neuroscience research community of the University of Pittsburgh, including the Center for Vision Restoration (http://foxcenter.pitt.edu/), the University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute (http://www.braininstitute.pitt.edu/), the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (http://www.cnup.pitt.edu), the Pittsburgh Institute for Neurodegenerative disorders (http://www.pind.pitt.edu) and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (http://www.upmc.com/about/facts/pages/default.aspx). Successful candidates will join an active auditory research community with diverse colleagues across the University of Pittsburgh and the adjacent Carnegie Mellon University whose research spans human clinical and behavioral research, auditory cognitive neuroscience, and systems, cellular and molecular neuroscience. The Department of Otolaryngology and this community are strengthened by NIH-supported training grants promoting graduate and post-doctoral training in auditory science.  

Please submit a current CV, a 2-page description of research interests and future directions, and three referee names with their email addresses. Review of applications will begin in mid-October 2017 and will continue until the position is filled.

Materials should be sent to:

Dr. Thanos Tzounopoulos

Endowed Professor and Vice Chair of Research, Department of Otolaryngology
