The Department of Neuroscience on the Jupiter, FL campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) is seeking outstanding applicants for tenure track faculty positions at all levels. We invite applications from ambitious and interactive investigators from all areas of modern neuroscience applying molecular, genetic, biochemical, biophysical, cellular anatomical, and behavioral approaches to elucidate the mechanisms underlying nervous system function and its disorders.

The Department of Neuroscience and TSRI offer a dynamic environment and are committed to providing a multi-disciplinary, collaborative atmosphere for fostering cutting edge neuroscience research. Current strengths of the Department include a range of genetic animal models to study neuronal function, model neuropsychiatric disease, analyze neural circuit organization and behavior, as well as CNS drug discovery and development. We host substantial expertise in sensory neuroscience, addiction biology, learning and memory, neural control of metabolism and animal models of neurodegenerative, psychiatric and neurological diseases.  The state-of-the-art facilities at Scripps Florida provide assistance with proteomics, next-generation sequencing, structural biology, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics, medicinal chemistry, rodent behavior, and ultra high-throughput small molecule screening for drug discovery.

Scripps Florida shares its campus with a vibrant neuroscience community, which includes the world-renowned Max Plank Florida Institute for Neuroscience and the Florida Atlantic University Brain Institute. In addition, bicoastal integration of the Department offers access to resources and events on the La Jolla, CA campus, including partnership with the translational drug development capabilities of Calibr.

We particularly encourage applications from established investigators; inquiries about opportunities and nominations can be directed to Department Chair Dr. Kirill Martemyanov.

Interested candidates should submit their Curriculum Vitae and statement of research interests. Candidates for Assistant Professor level should also include contact information for at least three professional references.

Candidates must have a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent in a relevant discipline, and an outstanding record of research that demonstrates originality in addressing significant questions. Successful candidates will be expected to establish an active research group, be an interactive member of the faculty, and participate in interdisciplinary research and training. A Search Committee will review all applications and select candidates for interviews starting immediately.
