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 Ceri.Kum@perrettlaver.com.
