The Unit of Neurobiology Research, Department of Molecular Medicine, invites applications for a full-time associate professor position in neuroscience and experimental neuropharmacology.

We seek individuals who have research expertise that complement existing focus areas of the Department.

Major research areas of the department are stem cells and glial biology with relevance to clinical and experimental studies of stroke, demyelinating and neurodegenerative disease.

Preferred areas of research should supplement existing strengths within the Unit, but applicants must boost the area of experimental neuroscience and neuropharmacology.

The successful candidate will hold a strong publication record within experimental, translational or basic neuroscience research.

The successful candidate must hold a PhD degree in neurobiology or related disciplines, an M.D., or equivalent; and must have proven postdoctoral training, formal pedagogical training (“adjunktpædagogikum” or equivalent) and supervising experience, and must have demonstrated significant research through publications.

Special consideration will be given to candidates that demonstrate – by publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals – a strong background in any of the themes mentioned above.

Shortlisting and tests may be used in the assessment process.

Teaching commitments
The successful applicant will hold course responsibility and teach neurobiology to medical, BSc and MSc students at courses provided by the Faculty of Health Sciences.
