Rutgers University Department of Neurosurgery at Robert Wood Johnson and New Jersey Medical Schools and Rutgers Brain Health Institute seek to recruit outstanding federally-funded faculty who will help execute our mission of building a world-class translational neuroscience research program in one of the leading academic medical centers in the United States. Openings will be filled at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor. The recent merging of the two departments of Neurosurgery at Robert Wood Johnson and New Jersey Medical Schools, under the leadership of newly recruited Chair, Dr. Anil Nanda, has led to the formation of a department composed of basic and translational research scientists, clinician scientists, and clinicians working collaboratively on high-impact basic and clinical research. The scientific focus of the Department is on bench-to-bedside research to understand mechanisms of disease development, progression, and prevention in the areas of epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, and cancer; and to translate research findings into novel therapeutic approaches with a particular focus on neuromodulation, metabolism,  and epigenetics. In addition, we apply neuroimaging techniques in understanding disease processes and monitoring their response to therapy. These research topics are also part of the four focus areas at the Rutgers Brain Health Institute, which is the home for the overall Rutgers neuroscience initiative, and is a growing interdisciplinary institute consisting of more than 250 principal investigators with neuroscience laboratories across various campuses of Rutgers University and Rutgers federally-funded research program in epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, brain cancer, or neuroimaging.

Applicants must have a PhD, MD, or equivalent doctoral degree, with demonstrated ability to lead an independent, federally-funded research program in epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, or brain cancer. We offer substantial resources and outstanding core facilities to support these positions. Candidates applying for a position at the Assistant Professor level are expected to have K99/R00 grants or equivalent and develop a rigorous extramurally funded research program. Candidates at the Associate and Full Professor level are expected to have an established federal grant portfolio that can be transferred to Rutgers. Rutgers values a culturally diverse faculty; we strongly encourage applications from female and minority candidates. Applications for these positions will be screened immediately and the search will continue to be considered until September 2020.
