Cellular, Molecular Auditory Neuroscience
Department of Otolaryngology
University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
The Department of Otolaryngology and the Pittsburgh Hearing Research Center at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine invites applications for an Assistant/Associate/Professor full-time, tenure-track position in auditory neuroscience. Faculty rank (Assistant, Associate or Professor) will be determined by and commensurate with qualifications and experience.
The successful candidate will hold a PhD, MD/PhD or MD degree and have research interests relevant to the auditory system. We are seeking exceptional scientists to establish vigorous independent research programs and promote synergy between basic and translational research. For this search, candidates with interests relevant to genetic, cellular or molecular mechanisms in normal or pathological audition are encouraged to apply. Candidates performing research related to hearing restoration, including hair cell and auditory nerve regeneration or prevention of degeneration, are especially encouraged to apply. A very generous start-up package is available. Moreover, an Endowed Chair is available to support a senior candidate with an extraordinary record of accomplishments.
The faculty position is within the vibrant and highly interactive basic and clinical neuroscience research community of the University of Pittsburgh, including the Center for Vision Restoration (http://foxcenter.pitt.edu/), the University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute (http://www.braininstitute.pitt.edu/), the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (http://www.cnup.pitt.edu), the Pittsburgh Institute for Neurodegenerative disorders (http://www.pind.pitt.edu) and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (http://www.upmc.com/about/facts/pages/default.aspx). Successful candidates will join an active auditory research community with diverse colleagues across University of Pittsburgh and the adjacent Carnegie Mellon University, whose research spans human clinical and behavioral research, auditory cognitive neuroscience, and systems, cellular and molecular neuroscience. This community is strengthened by NIH-supported training grants promoting graduate and postdoctoral training in auditory science.
Please submit a CV, a 2-page description of research interests and future directions, and three reference letters. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
Materials should be sent to:
