JOB DESCRIPTION

APPLY
The University of Chicago's Department of Organismal Biology & Anatomy, in conjunction with The Grossman Institute for Neuroscience, Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior, seeks to recruit tenure-track faculty. The University of Chicago is currently engaged in a major expansion in neuroscience, and offers a rich intellectual environment that includes affiliations with the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole and Argonne National Laboratory, as well as a strong translational neuroscience community. We are particularly interested in investigators employing novel approaches towards the understanding of neuronal circuits and their connection to behavior, complementing our strengths in evolutionary biology, and working in comparative fields such as neuroethology or related disciplines of integrative neuroscience. All applicants must have an M.D. or Ph.D. (or foreign equivalent) in neuroscience or a closely related field. Appointments can be made at any rank from Assistant Professor to Professor.
Those interested must apply online at the University of Chicago's Academic Career Opportunities website at http://tinyurl.com/z7g4eoo by uploading a cover letter, CV, a statement of research objectives, and a teaching statement. Applicants for assistant professorships must also email names and contact information for three references to oba@uchicago.edu; these applications will not be considered complete until this email is received. Review of applications will begin October 15, 2016 and will continue until the position is filled.
