Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Visual Sciences and Vision Disorders

at the Duke-NUS Medical School

(Assistant, Associate and Professor Levels)

Duke-NUS is looking to recruit two new tenure-track faculty to work at the recently established Duke-NUS Centre for Vision Research. The centre aims to bridge existing strengths at DUKE-NUS in fundamental neurosciences in particular neurodegeneration, neuroplasticity, stem cells and regeneration research with expertise in translational ophthalmology and genomics based at the adjacent Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI) and Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC). Bridging world-class research at both institutions will provide the successful candidates with an outstanding opportunity for translating and innovating fundamental eye and vision research into the clinical setting.

We seek candidates (PhD or MD/PhD) with internationally competitive track records in fundamental or­­ translational laboratory-based research. Individuals with interests in areas relating to ageing bioenergetics and neurodegeneration or stem cell and regenerative medicine are strongly encouraged to apply. Prior experience with cell and/or animal experimental models relevant to eye and vision disorders are preferred but not a pre-requisite.

The recruited faculty will hold their primary appointment at Duke-NUS with a joint appointment with SERI/ SNEC. The level of appointment will be at Professorial, Associate Professor or Assistant Professor level and commensurate with the candidates experience and track record. The recruitment package will include an attractive salary, generous start-up research funding as well as office and laboratory space. The successful candidate is expected to build and lead a collaborative and productive research team and apply for competitive grants to sustain his/her research in the long term.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae and summary of accomplishments via e-mail by 15th July, 2019 or until the position is filled.
