The University of Chicago's Department of Neurobiology in the Biological Sciences Division is searching for a Research Assistant Professor whose primary activity will be academic research in association with a faculty member or team. The RAP will be responsible for preparing samples for X-ray and electron microscopy (EM) imaging (e.g., animal perfusions, tissue fixation and staining, ultra-thin sectioning, and operating microscopes to collect image series), analyzing the resulting datasets, writing manuscripts, and applying for grants both as a member of the larger team and for independent funding. Thus, we welcome applicants with experience in large volume serial electron microscopy (connectomics), synchrotron source X-ray imaging of brains in health and disease, and experience in the algorithms used to analyze these datasets. The appointee will ultimately create an independent research effort with dedicated extramural funding that complements existing strengths within our academic community. Publication record and ability to obtain extramural grants will be considered.
Applicants must 1) have a doctoral degree or equivalent in Biological or Biomedical Sciences or related disciplines, and 2) have completed postdoctoral training prior to the start of employment.
To be considered, those interested must apply through The University of Chicago, Academic Recruitment job board, which uses Interfolio to accept applications: http://apply.interfolio.com/136115. Applicants must upload a cover letter, CV including bibliography, and contact information for 3 references. Review of complete applications will continue until the position is filled.
