The Department of Biological Sciences at Clemson University invites applications at the Associate or Full Professor level for a Neurobiologist with research interests in toxicology, pharmacology, or neurodevelopmental disease. We are interested in building around and expanding our strengths in neurobiology and environmental toxicology with a candidate who is both a great scientist and leader. Clemson University, the College of Science, and the Department of Biological Sciences are committed to building a community of inclusive excellence, where faculty scholars are dedicated to working and teaching in a multi-cultural environment. We are supportive of the needs of dual career couples.

The successful candidate will bring an innovative and high-impact research program to Clemson that complements and enhances existing departmental research strengths. The candidate will also contribute to the teaching mission of the department.

The Department of Biological Sciences is a founding member of the newly formed College of Science, a central player in both the university’s strategic plan, ClemsonFORWARD and college's SciFORWARD plan. The Department awards undergraduate and graduate degrees in Biological Sciences and Microbiology, and a graduate degree in Environmental Toxicology. Located on Lake Hartwell in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Clemson University is South Carolina’s public land-grant University. As a Carnegie R1 Institution, Clemson has excellent research resources including the globally ranked Palmetto high performance computing cluster, the Clemson University Genomics and Bioinformatics Facility (including a NovaSeq and PacBio Sequel II), state-of-the-art light microscopy, electron microscopy, state-of-the art vivarium facilities, and a multi-user analytical laboratory. There are many opportunities for collaboration across a wide group of partners on and off campus, including the Center for Human Genetics and Prisma Health.

Qualified candidates will have a PhD and tenure or equivalent at their current institution. They will also have an excellent record and trajectory of accomplishment leading a successful academic, federally funded research program that includes graduating doctoral students, mentoring postdoctoral fellows, and fostering diversity and inclusion.
