Recruiting Assistant/Associate Professor of Cell Biology and Neuroscience

The Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. We seek individuals with research programs that will advance our understanding of neurological disorders through the investigation of mechanisms affecting RNA metabolism or protein translation.

The Department is located on the Rutgers Busch Campus and is part of the Division of Life Sciences, a group of Departments and Institutes that serves to provide opportunities for interdisciplinary research. Current collaborations within the Division range from biomaterials and nanotechnology, RNA biology and neurosciences, to human genetics and stem cells. The campus is located near the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and is less than one hour away from New York City and Philadelphia. Rutgers offers excellent facilities and competitive start-up packages.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, neuroscience, or a related field and/or an M.D. with a minimum of four years postdoctoral experience. The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the field of cell biology or neuroscience and to establish a productive, independent research program supported by external funding.

Interested individuals are encouraged to apply online with a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research plans, and the names, addresses, and contact information of three individuals who will provide a letter of reference.

Applications should be submitted as soon as possible but not later than December 15, 2016. Late applications will be considered only if positions remain available.

Rutgers University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
