Assistant Professor in Neuroscience

Biological Sciences Faculty Los Angeles, California

The Neurobiology Section in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Southern California invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of neuroscience position. Faculty appointments at the level of Associate or Full Professor will also be considered under special circumstances. We seek outstanding candidates from all areas of neuroscience, including cellular, molecular, systems, behavioral, computational, and developmental. Candidates whose research falls into these broad disciplines are invited to apply. The University Park Campus of USC is located close to downtown Los Angeles, offering a vibrant cultural and recreational environment. 

Key selection criteria will include research track record, originality and creativity of science, and anticipated impact on the field of neuroscience and related disciplines. We strongly encourage applications from women, underrepresented minorities, and individuals with a commitment to mentoring groups that are underrepresented in the sciences. The successful candidate will be expected to continue their active research program and their participation in mentoring activities to support our diverse student body, with particular focus on students and trainees from underrepresented groups. USC offers competitive salaries, research set-up funds, and recruitment allowances as well as a thriving community of scholars committed to mutually supporting each other.

The Neurobiology Section at USC is highly collaborative and is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community. Diversity, equity and inclusion are core values at USC and in the Neurobiology Section. Successful candidates for this position should demonstrate evidence of a commitment to advancing equity and inclusion through their research, teaching and/or service.

The Section is committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual career couples and single parents. We are also interested in candidates who have had non-traditional career paths or who have taken time off for family reasons (e.g., caring for children, the disabled or the elderly), or who have achieved excellence in careers outside of academia (e.g., in professional or industry service).

The basic qualifications required to be considered for this position are a Ph.D. or equivalent degree.

In order to be considered for this position, all candidates must apply via the "Apply" link at the top or bottom of this page and include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a brief summary of current and proposed research, a statement on how they can assist in fostering diversity, equity, inclusion at USC, and contact information for at least four references. For fullest consideration, materials should be received by December 7, 2020.
