Position title – Tenure-track faculty in Neuroscience (open rank)
Organization – Augusta University
Location – Augusta, Georgia
The College of Science and Mathematics at Augusta University invites applications for a tenure-track position in Neuroscience to begin in Fall 2024 at a rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor as commensurate with experience. In Fall 2023 the College initiated a new interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience to complement a University-wide research initiative in this area, the Transdisciplinary Research Initiative in Inflammaging and Brain Aging (TRIBA, https://www.augusta.edu/research/triba/) and an existing PhD program in Neuroscience. A candidate qualified to serve at the level of professor or associate professor may be interested in taking on additional duties as the Program Director of the Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience. The successful candidate must have a doctorate in neuroscience or a closely related field; postdoctoral research experience; and a publication record commensurate with their career stage. Candidates for Associate Professor or Professor should have a distinguished record of teaching and research to include extramural funding. The field of research within neuroscience is open with an expectation that candidates will establish a vibrant and fundable research program that demonstrates originality in addressing significant questions. Successful applicants will have a commitment to teaching and mentoring students.
Augusta University is one of four designated research universities in the University System of Georgia and the state’s only public academic medical center, offering 155 academic programs from bachelor’s to doctoral. Augusta, Georgia is the cultural center of the region, site of the Masters Golf Tournament, and home of the Georgia Cyber Center, and is within easy driving distance of Atlantic beaches and Blue Ridge mountains. The university is located near Fort Eisenhower, home of the U.S. Army’s Signal Corps, Cyber Center of Excellence, Cyber Command, and NSA-Georgia. The Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site and Savannah River National Laboratory are nearby.
In 2021, most of the College of Science and Mathematics relocated to a newly-constructed building on the Health Sciences Campus in close proximity to the Medical College of Georgia, Dental College of Georgia, and Georgia Cancer Center. The proximity to colleagues on the Health Sciences Campus provides ample opportunities for the faculty to initiate and participate in cross-disciplinary collaboration and scientific discovery. A build-out of the top floor of the Science and Mathematics building, completed in Fall 2023, provides 28,765 square feet of research laboratories and support spaces. University support for research includes a dedicated research MRI and numerous core facilities for imaging, biomedical and chemical analysis, statistical analysis, small animal behavior, and high performance computing.
