The department has a longstanding tradition of excellence and brings together research and teaching in all facets and levels of neuroscience: cellular and molecular, developmental, systems approaches, and translational work.

The department’s work covers many areas of neuroscience, including the study of ion channels, synaptic transmission, neural development, sensory and cognitive physiology, and neural circuits.

The successful candidate will have a compelling vision for the future of neuroscience in a leading research- intensive public academic institution and medical center. The Chair will possess proven leadership and management skills as well as an outstanding academic background. The Chair will provide strategic, academic, and administrative leadership of the highest quality to this distinguished department in its research, teaching, and service missions.
