Developmental Neurobiology, Tenure-Track Investigator

Department of Health and Human Services
National Institutes of Health
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
Research Triangle Park, North Carolina

The Laboratory of Neurobiology is recruiting a Tenure-Track Investigator to lead a high-quality independent research program on any fundamental aspect of developmental neurobiology with the potential for identifying and preventing the deleterious effects of environmental exposures on human cognitive development. Investigators in the NIEHS intramural program have no formal teaching duties and minimal administrative responsibilities and are funded internally without extramural grants. In exchange, they are expected to engage directly in the conduct of research with a small group of postdoctoral fellows and technicians and to collaborate with their colleagues to solve important scientific problems related to the Institute's mission. Excellent start-up funds, salary, and benefits package will be provided to the selected applicant, who will also have access to state-of-the-art research core facilities at the NIEHS. Applicants should have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent doctoral degree with at least 3 years of postdoctoral research experience in developmental neurobiology and a strong publication record. Applicants using fluorescence imaging and genetic model organisms are particularly encouraged to apply, but the emphasis will be on identifying an outstanding scientist with an innovative research program. Interested persons should send their Curriculum Vitae with a statement of research interests, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted to the address below. Applications received by February 13, 2009 will be given first consideration. Applications received after that date will be considered only if the position has not been filled.
