Associate or Assistant Professor, Prion and Neurodegenerative Disease Research

The Department of Pathology at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is recruiting a tenured/tenure track Associate or Assistant Professor to expand its vibrant research program in neurodegenerative diseases. Candidates with an established track record in prion research or protein conformational disorders are strongly preferred; the ability to engage in a broader scope of research including other neurodegenerative disorders is also preferred.  The Department houses the CDC-funded National Prion Disease Pathology Surveillance Center, has an NIH T32 training grant in neurodegenerative diseases, and already has 10 faculty members engaged in neurodegenerative disease research including prion disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The scientific environment is further supported by a strong interdepartmental Neuroscience research community. The Pathology Department is ranked in the top 10 for NIH funding. CWRU is located in Cleveland Ohio, a central Midwestern hub for art, culture, and sports that boasts a low cost of living and outstanding schools. 

Candidates at the Assistant Professor level should have a demonstrated record of success in multiple venues with substantial potential to obtain external funding.  Candidates at the Associate Professor level should have robust and active research programs supported by substantial external funding and demonstrable national scientific reputation.

Interested candidates should forward a cover letter with statement of research interests and goals, CV, and names of 3 referees in a single pdf file to cxk15@case.edu.
