The Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine is seeking a neuroscientist or physiologist to fill a tenure-eligible Assistant or Associate Professor position. The applicant’s research program should address fundamental physiological questions at systems, cellular, or molecular levels, to complement and extend the Department’s existing research strengths in nervous and cardiovascular system function, ion channel biophysics and computational science (medschool.cuanschutz.edu/physiology). We especially encourage applicants using state-of-the-art imaging, electrophysiological methods and/or computational approaches. We expect appointees to conduct vigorous independent research and to participate in professional and graduate teaching and training.
Appointees will join a vibrant and growing Department under the new leadership of Dr. David DiGregorio – hired as Chair in January 2023 – with a commitment to mentoring faculty and trainees from diverse backgrounds. Research interests in the Department currently include cardiac and skeletal muscle physiology, cell signaling, computational neuroscience, developmental neurobiology, ion channel biophysics, sensory and motor systems, and synaptic function. Extra-departmental interactions are facilitated by several NIH-supported interdepartmental graduate programs and centers. In addition, core facilities provide support in electron microscopy, rodent in vivo behavior and electrophysiology, neural engineering, machining, transgenics and genomics (medschool.cuanschutz.edu/neurotechnologycenter).
