The Del Monte Institute for Neuroscience and Department of Neuroscience at the University of Rochester invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor rank. As part of an ongoing expansion in Neuroscience across the University, we seek outstanding applicants using innovative approaches in genetically tractable model systems to address fundamental issues concerning the development and function of neural circuits. Particular consideration will be given to individuals whose work has relevance in the domain of intellectual and developmental disabilities. The successful candidate will join a vibrant, diverse community with interests spanning cellular, systems, and cognitive Neuroscience, and will contribute to teaching and mentoring at the graduate level.

To apply, please provide a cover letter, CV, statement of research interests, PDFs of two or three recent publications, and (for Assistant and Associate Professor candidates) contact information for three references.
