Assistant Professors of Neuroscience
Johns Hopkins University

March 15, 2023
Johns Hopkins University is currently accepting applications for six tenure-track positions at the assistant professor level in the field of neuroscience. These positions are part of Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships (BDP) Program’s Brain Resilience Across the Life Span research cluster and will significantly strengthen the Johns Hopkins neuroscience community. These six junior positions will be complemented by six new senior BDP hires. The faculty members selected will collaborate across fields, such as neuroscience, biomedical engineering, biology, psychology, neurology, and psychiatry, to create an interdisciplinary research program.
The Brain Resilience Across the Lifespan BDP cluster is dedicated to furthering our basic understanding of brain plasticity mechanisms to establish, enhance and preserve brain function over the lifespan in health and disease. Rapidly expanding approaches in cellular and circuit imaging, single-cell and spatial transcriptomics, high-density neurophysiology, genomics, and computational genetics, among others, provide unprecedented opportunities to meet this goal.
Johns Hopkins University is a world-renowned institution in neuroscience-related research and education, and is a leader in the treatment of neurological, neuropsychiatric, and neurodegenerative disorders. Assistant professors hired in the research cluster will be based in either the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, or the Whiting School of Engineering. Departmental affiliations will include, but are not limited to, neuroscience, biomedical engineering, psychiatry, psychological and brain sciences, neurology, or biology, and will be determined based on the research interests of the candidates.
Candidates should have a PhD in neuroscience (or a related field) and should possess strong records of achievement in research and scholarship in the area of neuroscience or related fields such as neuroengineering or neurogenetics. They should demonstrate an ability to develop an independent research program and be committed to cross-disciplinary collaboration. They should possess the ability to serve as mentors for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows and to teach within their home department or program. We strongly encourage applications from individuals from historically underrepresented backgrounds in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Applications should include a cover letter, C.V., a 2-page statement of research interests, PDFs of three key publications, and the names and addresses of three professional references.
Applications should be addressed to
Richard Huganir and Patricia Janak
Departments of Neuroscience and Psychological and Brain Sciences
Johns Hopkins University
While candidates who complete their applications by June 1, 2023, will receive immediate consideration, we will consider applications submitted after that date on a rolling basis. Questions may be directed to BrainResilience@jhu.edu.
