Faculty Positions, Vollum Institute

Oregon Health & Science University

Portland, Oregon

The Vollum Institute (www.ohsu.edu/vollum) is undergoing an exciting phase of growth and announces multiple faculty openings for biomedical scientists. We are particularly interested in applicants whose research focuses on neuroscience-relevant topics such as molecular and cellular neuroscience, molecular genetics, circuits and systems in model organisms, structural biology, and glial biology to expand on our current research strengths.

Vollum appointments  are full-time research positions within the Vollum Institute with minimal teaching or clinical requirements. Ample opportunities are available for collaboration with basic science and clinical departments within the School of Medicine, and additional research units at OHSU (www.ohsu.edu) such as the Oregon Hearing Research Center (auditory neuroscience) and the Jungers Center (disease-related neuroscience).

Applications will be accepted at junior and mid-career levels. We particularly encourage women scientists and those from diverse backgrounds to apply. Applicants should have a strong record of research success and an interest in training graduate students. We offer highly attractive start-up packages and the opportunity to work in an outstanding scientific environment that includes strong mentoring for junior scientists.

Candidates with a Ph.D. and/or M.D. and at least several years of postdoctoral experience should apply by submitting their curriculum vitae, a description of research plans and goals, and three letters of reference to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/11555. Applications must be received by November 1, 2018.
