Assistant Professor of Neuroscience

The Department of Biology at the College of William and Mary invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor in Neuroscience beginning in Fall, 2017 with a preferred research focus using genetically tractable model systems, including, but not limited to, mice, zebrafish, and Drosophila.  The successful candidate will employ a range of contemporary neuroscience techniques and is expected to maintain an externally funded research program involving both undergraduate and graduate students.  We seek applicants whose teaching and research capabilities span from genes to behaviors.  In addition to working with undergraduate and Master’s students in Biology, there is the opportunity to mentor Ph.D. students whose focus is neuroscience as an affiliate of the Applied Science Department.  Annual teaching expectations typically include an upper level course in molecular neuroscience along with a lab during one semester, and another smaller seminar-style course in the candidate’s area of expertise for the following semester. A Ph.D. and postdoctoral research experience are required, and previous teaching experience will be viewed favorably.  For full consideration, applicants should arrange to have all materials submitted before review begins on October 28, 2016.  Applications received after this date will be reviewed if needed. Candidates must apply online (jobs.wm.edu/postings/25732) and should include a curriculum vitae, a cover letter including statements of research and teaching interests, up to three representative publications and a list of courses taken/taught relevant to neuroscience.  Candidates should also arrange to have three letters of reference submitted to the online jobs site.
