Yale Center for Brain & Mind Health (CBMH) Faculty Position:  Network Therapeutics

The Yale Center for Brain and Mind Health (CBMH) seeks to hire new faculty at the Assistant, Associate or Professor level with a research focus in network therapeutics. The CBMH’s broad mission is to apply clinical and translational neuroscience to directly improve the quality of life for individuals with conditions affecting the mind and brain. We are enthusiastic about candidates that analyze typical or atypical brain function at the level of meso- and macro-scale networks with the potential to lead to novel interventions through normalization or rebalancing of those networks. Candidates may integrate approaches such as EEG, fMRI, MEG, PET, or NIRS, focus on network interventions such as TMS, DCS, DBS, neurofeedback, brain machine interface and/or utilize computational or artificial intelligence-based approaches for the analysis of normal and treatment of perturbed brain networks.

Successful candidates will be embedded in the richly collaborative CMBH environment that supports intellectual creativity. The CBMH is a new interdepartmental Center at the Yale School of Medicine that collaborates with clinical and basic science departments across the University to foster innovative work in the neurosciences. The unique design of the CBMH leadership, five individuals from different departments, with diverse backgrounds and interests, embodies a core CBMH principle: creating a scientific community where the sum is greater than each individual part. The CBMH realizes that the full potential of research lies in the power that diverse perspectives bring to the field. We foster an environment where individuals of any race, gender, identity, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic class, sexual orientation, and geographical background feel supported and empowered to push forward the frontiers of clinically relevant neuroscience research based on the principles of inclusivity, equity, and belonging. We strongly encourage applicants from historically marginalized backgrounds to apply.

Emphasis will be placed on recruiting applicants that are enthusiastic about contributing to the foundation of the CBMH’s dynamic, growing community and are eager to apply neuroscience research to improve patient care. Yale is home to a vibrant neuroscience community, which includes leading Departments of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, the Child Study Center, and the Wu-Tsai Institute. The CBMH collaborates across these entities and integrates basic and patient-oriented research across a dynamic range of investigators. Faculty are expected to develop a productive and innovative research program, be outstanding scholars with a track record of collaborative, multidisciplinary research and scholarly productivity, demonstrate a commitment to health-related outcomes, and evidence excellence in teaching and mentorship. Faculty will be appointed in an affiliated department appropriate to their area of research. Rank will be commensurate with experience.

This call is open with respect to the specific condition(s) or transdiagnostic health-related construct(s) addressed. Clinician-scientists and basic scientists engaged in clinical or translational work are welcome to apply. Eligible applicants must have an MD, PhD, or equivalent degree at the time of hire. Please send a cover letter, diversity statement, research statement, and a curriculum vitae and arrange for three letters of recommendation.

Cover letter: Indicate your desired level of appointment and describe how your work fits with the goals and mission of CBMH. Diversity Statement (1 page max): Describe your understanding of the challenges facing historically underrepresented groups in science, your lived experience, your commitment to addressing these inequities, and your ideas for doing so. Research statement (3-page max including optional figures and references): Describe your most significant discoveries and accomplishments to date as well as a focus on the goals of your future research program. Please include how your work will nurture collaboration at CBMH. Curriculum Vitae: Include links to publications or website.
