TENURE TRACK FACULTY POSITION in NEUROSCIENCE The Department of Neurobiology & Anatomy at the University of Utah (http://www.neuro.utah.edu/) is seeking applications for a tenure track faculty position to lead a research team with a focus on addressing mechanisms of brain function while fostering an inclusive research environment. The department is vibrant and growing, with an emphasis on collegiality and collaboration. Areas of expertise in the department range from neurogenetics and developmental biology to circuit neuroscience and behavior. We are interested in candidates who use multidisciplinary approaches to understand brain function in health and disease. Areas of particular interest include neurodegeneration and disorders associated with aging, but all areas of neuroscience will be considered.   

The department is strongly committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion both at the university and in neuroscience more generally. A demonstrated commitment to these principles will feature prominently in the selection process. All candidates are urged to put their best effort into crafting the diversity statement required for this application (for guidance see application home page).  

Additionally, to mitigate the effects of unconscious bias and ensure equitable consideration of all applicants, review of applications will be conducted in a partially anonymous way. To enable this approach, applicants are required to submit an anonymized summary of their past research accomplishments and future plans in addition to the standard application materials (for guidance see application home page).  

Individuals must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D., or equivalent degrees at any rank, with two or more years of postdoctoral experience. Applicants should demonstrate excellence in  research with strong potential for securing and sustaining independent extramural funding. The department offers excellent resources to support new faculty, including competitive salary and start-up support, newly renovated research space, active faculty mentoring, core facilities, interdepartmental graduate training programs, and a collegial research environment, with a growing focus on neuroscience research across campus. A successful applicant will be expected to develop an innovative, independent research program, and share our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion as well as excellence in graduate and medical education.  

For full consideration, applications should be received by October 17, 2021. Only electronic applications will be accepted, and should include 1) cover letter, 2) 1 page anonymized past and future research summary, 3) 1 page diversity statement, 4) curriculum vitae, 5) 3-4 page research statement, and 6) three reference letters.
