Tenure-track Faculty in Computational/Theoretical Neuroscience

The University of Chicago: Biological Sciences Division: Department of Neurobiology


Position Description

The University of Chicago's Grossman Center for Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior and the Department of Neurobiology seek faculty in computational/theoretical neuroscience.  The appointee will be a core member of the newly-launched Grossman Center for Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior and will lead a ‘dry’ computational lab alongside a growing group of other computational neuroscientists. The Grossman Center seeks faculty who will establish deep and extensive collaborations with the vibrant experimental neuroscience community at the University of Chicago.  Those developing computational models and analysis methods at the cellular, circuits, systems, or cognitive levels are especially welcome to apply. Appointment as a tenure-track assistant professor is expected, but we will consider appointments as a tenured associate or full professor.  

The University of Chicago is currently engaged in a major expansion in neuroscience, with computational neuroscience being an area of focus. The University offers a rich intellectual environment that includes a strong translational neuroscience community and affiliations with Argonne National Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole. The Division, other academic units of the University, and the School of Medicine, are all contained within one compact campus in Chicago's Hyde Park. Appointees will have access to state-of-the-art core facilities and to outstanding colleagues and graduate students affiliated with numerous degree-granting programs within and outside the biological sciences.
