Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida is seeking outstanding candidates with strong training and expertise in neuroimmunology and dynamic research programs for a faculty position.
The Mayo Clinic Departments of Neuroscience and Neurology are internationally recognized and respected for outstanding academic excellence. Current faculty members have a focus on age-related neurodegenerative diseases, neuroimmune diseases, and neurovascular diseases. The faculty within these departments play key roles in the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, large scale NIH-funded Alzheimer’s disease consortia including AMP-AD and M2OVE-AD, Tau Center without Walls, Lewy body dementia Center without Walls, and in NIH-supported whole genome sequencing efforts for a variety of neurological diseases. The research mission is closely aligned with the resources and initiatives of the Robert and Arlene Kogod Center on Aging, the Center for Regenerative Medicine, the Center for Individualized Medicine, the Center for Multiple Sclerosis and Autoimmune Neurology, and the Center for Biomedical Discovery at Mayo Clinic.
Mayo Clinic has a wealth of world-class faculty. Laboratories and shared resource facilities are state-of-the-art, including those for microscopy and imaging, cell and molecular biology, animal models, production of research and clinical grade iPSCs and MSCs, biomedical engineering and mathematics, materials testing, a Medical Genomics Facility, a Mouse Modeling Facility, Molecular and Microscopic Core Facilities, and unique Human Disease Tissue Banks. We offer a highly competitive compensation package with sustained intramural funding, capital equipment funding, technical and computational resources, and exceptional benefits.
The candidate for this position is expected to have strong training, experience, and expertise in immunology as it applies to the knowledge, diagnosis and treatment of neurodegenerative, autoimmune, neurovascular, and other neurological disorders with inflammation as a major contributing factor to the disease etiology.
We are seeking individuals with a strong and established track records of successful research funding or accomplishments, or those who have a clear pathway towards successful translation to immune-based therapeutics. The candidate is expected to have an established track record of impactful publications and collaborative team-science endeavors, and to develop a robust translational team-based program to promote bench discoveries to clinical applications.
Although all areas of neuroimmunology research will be considered, we are in particular seeking candidates who have primary interests in addressing the specific roles of innate and adaptive immune systems in neurodegenerative and autoimmune diseases. Expertise in the application of novel in vitro and in vivo imaging tools, disease modeling using animal models and induced pluripotent stem cells, the use of systems level analytical, computational, and bioinformatics approaches, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, machine learning/AI, or the integration of multiple discovery platforms to advance our understanding of disease biology and etiology are desired. The candidate can be either a Ph.D., M.D., or Ph.D./M.D. and will be appointed in the Department of Neuroscience and/or Neurology. Individuals with interest and experience in research training and graduate-level education are particularly encouraged to apply.
