The Center for the Neurobiology of Stress Resilience and Psychiatric Disorders (NSRPD) at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science invites applications from outstanding candidates for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level.  New members will join a core group of highly successful and collaborative investigators focused on the neurophysiology of stress disorders and resilience within a wider community of neuroscientists at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (Center NSRPD faculty).  The successful candidate will be expected to complement the current research strengths in areas of behavioral neuroscience, neuroendocrinology, neurophysiology and pain; applicants with research programs related to the areas of motivated behavior, psychiatric-, or stress-related disorders are particularly encouraged to apply.  Candidates are expected to develop a vibrant, externally-funded research program and contribute to teaching in the medical and graduate programs, including mentoring of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.  Faculty appointments will be in the medical school in Physiology and Biophysics. Start-up packages and salary are competitive and commensurate with academic credentials and experience.

Research Centers for Genetic Diseases, Proteomics and Molecular Therapeutics, and Cancer Cell Biology, Immunology, and Infection are also located in the new building. These facilities are designed to promote interaction among scientists across different fields and with biotech firms and industry partners to address clinically-relevant issues and promote translational research. Researchers will have access to RFUMS core facilities as well as the nearby Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center (VA Medical Center) and Great Lakes Naval Training Center, which are potential sources of collaboration and research opportunities.
