The Department of Pharmacology, Physiology and Neuroscience at the University of South Carolina (USC) School of Medicine in Columbia, SC invites applications for faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level. New faculty members will join a collegial and collaborative department at a university in the midst of an ambitious program to achieve national prominence in research and education. Candidates with research interests that complement the departmental research programs that focus on studying the molecular or cellular mechanisms underlying physiological processes, complex behaviors, or drug action are desirable, with priority given to USC’s expanding neuroscience-based research focus. Successful candidates will be expected to participate in medical and graduate teaching, with an emphasis on neuroanatomical and pharmacological topics. Candidates with research programs focused on novel molecular or cellular targets that play a key role in neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders may be eligible for appointment as target faculty in the NIH-funded COBRE Center in Targeted Therapeutics (http://sccp.sc.edu/ctt). Applicants must have a doctoral degree and postdoctoral experience. Preference will be given to individuals with experience in medical education, funding success and potential, and research interests that enhance departmental programs targeting neurobiological disorders. Substantial start-up funds and laboratory facilities will be provided. Applicants with necessary credentials will be considered for appointment on the tenure-track at the Assistant or, for exceptional candidates, Associate Professor level.

Qualified applicants may apply by submitting a single electronic file (PDF or Word) that includes a cover letter summarizing qualifications, curriculum vitae and publication list, a statement of research plans and professional goals, and contact information for four references. The file should be attached to an e-mail message sent to Dr. Jim Fadel at ppn.search@uscmed.sc.edu with “PPN Faculty Search” as the subject. Review of applications will begin September 15, 2017 and continue until the positions are filled.
