Job Details

The Department of Neuroscience at the University of Arizona invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level. We are especially interested in candidates who will complement and expand our strengths in the analysis of neural circuits and/or molecular & cellular mechanisms underlying neural function.

Successful candidates will share our commitment to cutting-edge neuroscience research and graduate/undergraduate education, will have a research agenda with a high potential to attract extramural funding, and will teach courses within the Neuroscience undergraduate curriculum, including an upper-level course in their area of expertise.

The Department’s research mission embraces fundamental mechanisms underlying behavior and the development, connectivity, function, maintenance, and evolution of nervous systems. We use multidisciplinary, comparative and integrative approaches that cut across diverse species. The Department is home to an outstanding undergraduate program in Neuroscience & Cognitive Science and is committed to the education of graduate students in the University-wide Graduate Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience. The Department emphasizes a culture of respect, trust, collegiality, and collaboration. We are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in neuroscience and will prioritize candidates who are equally committed to these principles.

Initial review of applications will begin by September 30, 2022 and continue until the positions are filled. Only electronic applications will be accepted and should include: (1) a cover letter; (2) a curriculum vitae; (3) a research statement detailing both accomplishments and future plans (3 pages); (4) a statement of teaching philosophy, interests, and experience (1 page); (5) 3 letters of recommendation. For further information and to apply, please use this link.


Neuroscience is the scientific study of nervous systems. The field encompasses the anatomy, behavioral functions, biochemistry, development, evolution, genetics, pharmacology, and physiology of nervous systems as well as biologically inspired robotics and prosthetics, computational modeling, and mechanisms of neurological and psychiatric diseases. The Department of Neuroscience is devoted to education and research in this remarkably interdisciplinary and dynamic field of modern science. Research in the Department of Neuroscience emphasizes analysis of neural circuits as it pertains to cellular, developmental, molecular and systems neurobiology, neuroethology, and neurogenetics.
