The Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics at Indiana University School of Medicine and the Stark Neuroscience Research Institute are jointly seeking applications for tenure track positions at all ranks to establish rigorous programs in neuroscience, and particularly in areas related to neurogenetics. Candidates with research interests in neurodegeneration including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease; neurodevelopment including autism; neuromuscular disorders; and/or genetic disease model systems are encouraged to apply.

Indiana University School of Medicine is committed to advancing outstanding neuroscience research in an integrated environment of basic science and clinical care, manifest in the recent opening of a  ~400,000 square foot Neuroscience Center complex-one of the nation’s largest combined neuroscience clinical and basic research facilities. Faculty must be highly collaborative and eager to work in interdisciplinary teams across the entire research spectrum (basic science, translational, clinical).  Indiana University School of Medicine has many multidisciplinary centers and state-of-the-art core facilities, including transgenic, imaging, genomic, proteomic, and chemical genomics as well as a clinical pharmacology analytic core (http://www.medicine.iu.edu/research). The Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics has a diverse faculty that includes basic science research as well as a strong clinical program participating in a range of multidisciplinary clinics.

Successful applicants are expected to develop innovative, independent and extramurally funded research programs and participate in the activities of the Stark Neuroscience Research Institute and the Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics. Highly competitive salary, start-up funds and laboratory space will be provided. Interested candidates should submit: 1) a 1-2 page cover page outlining the applicant’s research interests; and 2) a curriculum vitae via the link below. Priority date for applications is July 1, 2016.

Indiana University is an EEO/AA employer, M/F/D/V.  We encourage applications from women and other underrepresented groups.  In addition, it is the University’s policy to provide reasonable accommodations for qualified persons with disabilities.
