Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Human Neuroimaging at Rutgers Brain Health Institute
The Rutgers Brain Health Institute (http://brainhealthinstitute.rutgers.edu/) is recruiting a tenure-track faculty member at the Assistant Professor level who uses cutting edge fMRI approaches to image human brain activity at the new Center for Advanced Human Brain Imaging Research (CAHBIR) on the Busch campus in Piscataway, NJ. Additional methods such as EEG, tDCS and rTMS to study cognitive, motivational and affective aspects of human brain function would also be attractive. Applicants must have a PhD, MD/PhD, or equivalent doctoral degree, and a research program with currently active federal funding. In addition to a strong, federally funded research program, quality of research and fit within one or more of the four focus areas of the Rutgers Brain Health Institute are important criteria. We offer a competitive salary and an excellent start-up package. With over 250 neuroscience faculty labs engaged in basic and clinical research, and proximity to New York, Princeton and Philadelphia neuroscience communities, Rutgers offers tremendous collaborative opportunities and core facilities to support and grow an active research program. With a newly awarded NIH CTSA, Rutgers also offers unique opportunities to speed the translation of research discoveries into improved patient care. Outstanding core facilities will support this position, including a new research-dedicated 3T Prisma MRI scanner and a human behavioral testing core developed in collaboration with Princeton University. In addition, Rutgers-Piscataway has the world’s largest university-based biorepository, RUCDR, to facilitate genetic studies. Rutgers values a culturally diverse faculty; we strongly encourage applications from female and underrepresented minority candidates. Applicants should submit a CV and statement of research accomplishments and plans to Dr. David Zald, Director of CAHBIR and Chair of the search committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
