Applicants who study the mechanisms underlying normal nervous system function and/or how these mechanisms and interactions are affected by disease or injury are encouraged to apply. Candidates with technical expertise in functional imaging, optogenetics, bioengineering, electrophysiology or -omics-based technologies (genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, connectomics, etc.) will be prioritized.
Newly recruited faculty will have the opportunity to be part of one or more established or rapidly growing research teams focused on neurotrauma (spinal cord and brain injury), neural regeneration or plasticity, neuroimmunology, neurodegeneration/cognitive impairment, pain, addiction, epilepsy and stroke/ischemic injury.
