The National University of Singapore (NUS) has commenced the search for a distinguished neuroscientist to lead the University’s Neurobiology Research Programme.

The Neurobiology Research Programme is part of the Life Sciences Institute, a University-level research centre which reports to the Deputy President (Research & Technology) of NUS. The Programme consists of a broad-based group of investigators who conduct inter-disciplinary research that includes developmental and molecular neurobiology, the neurobiology of perception and cognition, age-related neurodegenerative diseases (especially Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease) and stroke. Members are drawn from a range of departments within and outside NUS.

Conducting world class research and growing and advancing the Programme into a premier hub in Neurobiology Research (with special attention to neurological conditions of relevance to Asia) will be key foci for the next Programme leader. Candidates will be internationally-recognized distinguished scientists in any field of neurobiology that is broadly relevant to the understanding of human neurodegenerative disease; whether fundamental science and/or translational. The ability to inspire colleagues, to work across disciplines and to forge excellent partnerships will be essential; so will be the demonstrated commitment to nurture the next generation of scientists and help to translate research into clinical practice and interventions. Candidates should possess a PhD and/or MD (or equivalent) degree. Appropriate start-up and space resources will be provided plus a tenured position in relevant University department(s). Positions for early career academic recruits linked to this appointment will be made available for suitably-qualified candidates.

For enquiries and applications - consisting of an up-to-date CV and a cover letter/response to selection criteria are welcome and may be made in the strictest confidence to Ceri Kum at Perrett Laver via

The closing date for this application is 9th January 2024 SGT.
