The Department of Neurobiology at Stanford University invites applications for a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor in any area of neuroscience, broadly defined. In this position, you will enjoy dynamic colleagues and mentors in your academic department and the broader multidisciplinary community of the Wu Tsai Neuroscience Institute. In this context, you will develop an outstanding neuroscience research program and contribute to the education and mentoring of the next generation of scientists.

  • The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching.
  • Applicants are required to hold a doctoral degree in neuroscience, genetics, biochemistry, biophysics, bioengineering, cell biology or any related discipline, and we encourage applications from physician-scientists.  
  • Individuals who have not had formal teaching experience should have demonstrated during their academic training a commitment to develop the skills necessary for first-rate teaching.
  • We are particularly interested in individuals studying a broad range of problems in the nervous system at the molecular, cellular and circuit level. Your demonstrated skills as a researcher should be paired with a commitment to develop world-class communication, leadership, teaching and mentoring skills.

To apply, please submit in one pdf file: a cover letter, curriculum vitae (CV), statement of research accomplishments and plans (3 pages, not including references), teaching and mentoring statement (1 page), 2 publications (or pre-prints) highlighting your research accomplishments. You will also be expected to provide the names and email address of 3 references in the application. All materials should be submitted online at http://apply.interfolio.com/92466. The search committee will begin reviewing applications on November 1, 2021 and will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.

The Neurobiology Department, School of Medicine, and Stanford University value faculty who are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. Candidates may optionally include as part of their research or teaching statement a brief discussion of how their work will further these ideals.
