Two Faculty Positions in the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute's Glial Biology Center
Assistant/Associate Professor in Glial Biology/Neuroscience
Tenure Track/Tenured, open rank, at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, Roanoke VA

 

The Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute (VTCRI) has launched a new center within the institute – the Center for Glial Biology in Health, Disease and Cancer (CGBHDC), with the objective to anchor the institute's growing research programs in the biology of glial cells in all aspects of health and disease. There are currently two open faculty positions – one at the assistant professor level and the other at the assistant or associate professor level. Applicants should have an earned doctorate, have completed postdoctoral training and demonstrated a track record of successful research related to glia or glioma biology. Successful candidates for the assistant professor position(s) should have either active extramural funding (preferably NIH) or strong potential of developing innovative research programs that can attract sustained extramural funding. Successful candidates for the associate professor position should have substantial active extramural research funding (preferably NIH). The new faculty will join a collaborative and highly successful group of investigators at the VTCRI with related research interests in a variety of areas of neuroscience. Competitive salary, space and start-up packages will be provided.

The VTC Research Institute and School of Medicine represent a successful public-private partnership between the Commonwealth of Virginia's leading research-intensive university – Virginia Tech – and a major health care system – Carilion Clinic, in Roanoke, VA. The research institute and medical school are located in the picturesque Roanoke Valley midway between Washington DC and Charlotte, NC. The VTCRI currently houses 25 independent research groups with over 250 research and support team members and over $70M in current active extramural research funding. Prospective faculty members can draw from an outstanding and diverse pool of graduate students to work with them in their research program. VT has over 6,000 graduate students and offers graduate programs in many neuroscience-related disciplines, including as a major focus area in the Translational Biology, Medicine and Heath (TBMH) program. Applicants will also enjoy access to unique shared research facilities at the VTCRI including high-resolution single and multi-photon confocal neuroimaging, fluorescence activated cell sorting, multiple MRIs, human and animal behavioral testing and molecular biology facilities.

Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis until the positions are filled. To apply, please submit your application including vitae, detailed statement of research accomplishments and interests and teaching/mentoring philosophy at www.jobs.vt.edu, posting #TR0160130. Quick link: http://listings.jobs.vt.edu/postings/70244. Also, have at least three references submit their letters of support to the VTCRI HR Director, Mr. Amel Cuskovic at acuskovi@vtc.vt.edu

Faculty Positions in the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute's Developmental and Translational Neurobiology Center

The Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute (VTCRI) has launched a new center within the institute – the Developmental and Translational Neurobiology Center (DTNC; https://wp.vtc.vt.edu/dtnc/), to expand the institute's research programs in cellular and molecular neurobiology in healthy development, disease, and trauma. There are currently two open assistant professor faculty positions – one for a neurobiologist studying mechanisms underlying brain development or neurodevelopmental disorders and one for a neurobiologist or neuro-immunologist studying neurodegenerative disease or brain injury. Applicants should have an earned doctorate, have completed postdoctoral training and demonstrated a track record of successful research, publications and either active extramural funding (preferably from NIH) or show distinct promise to obtain such funding. The new faculty will join a collaborative and highly successful group of investigators at the VTCRI with related research interests in a variety of areas of neuroscience.

Multiple Faculty Positions in Spinal Cord Injury: A Cluster Hire Spanning Engineering, Cellular, Molecular, Biomedical, and Behavioral/Psychological Approaches

Texas A&M University and Texas A&M University Health Science Center invite applications for four tenure-track/tenured faculty positions to begin in Fall 2017 in the area of spinal cord injury (SCI).

The hiring initiative builds upon a generous gift from The Institute for Rehabilitation and Research (TIRR) Foundation and aims to build research strength in the area of SCI to create an internationally-recognized center for interdisciplinary research in neural trauma, spinal injury and recovery of function. We seek creative, collaborative thinkers who use biomedical, behavioral, or engineering approaches to address fundamental questions regarding the neurobiology of injury and/or solutions to promote functional recovery, with the ultimate goal of bench-to-bedside translation.

Successful candidates will have a faculty appointment in Biology, Psychology, Neuroscience and Experimental Therapeutics, or Engineering, based upon their research approach and background. Faculty will also be affiliated with the Texas A&M Institute for Neuroscience (http://tamin.tamu.edu) and will be recognized as TIRR Foundation Fellows. Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D., a record of outstanding achievement as evidenced by publications in the area of SCI, and a promising (assistant professor) or externally funded (associate, full professor) research program. Undergraduate, graduate and/or professional teaching requirements will depend on policies of the department of hire.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, the names of three potential referees, and selected reprints/preprints, all as a single PDF file to Chair, Spinal Cord Injury Search Committee, at Chair@tamin.tamu.edu. . Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation forwarded to this e-mail address. The search committee will begin to review applications in October and will continue to process new applications until the positions are filled. Texas A&M University is an affirmative action/equal employment opportunity employer and actively seeks applications from women and minority candidates. Veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
