Job Posting: Assistant Professor, Neuroscience, Wellesley College, Wellesley, MA

Posted by on Friday, August 19, 2022 in Job Opportunities .

The Neuroscience Department at Wellesley College invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor level to begin in July 2023. We seek candidates who share our strong commitment to increasing diversity, equity and inclusion in STEM undergraduate research and education. We are especially interested in a broadly trained neuroscientist whose teaching, research, service, and/or personal experience has prepared them to successfully attract, retain, and mentor underrepresented students in neuroscience, and has a research agenda with the potential to attract extramural funding. Candidates should have a PhD and preference will be given to those with postdoctoral experience. This position is open to all areas of neuroscience, to candidates who complement and extend our existing program in new ways. Those areas include, but are not limited to, cellular and molecular mechanisms of disease, neurodevelopment, and neuroengineering. If you are committed to research and teaching in a liberal arts environment, we welcome your application. The successful candidate will teach courses within the Neuroscience curriculum, including an upper-level course in their area of expertise. We have a new, $200 million Science Complex that is well-equipped for research and teaching, including cutting-edge instrumentation and an AAALAC accredited Animal Care Facility with housing and surgical suites available to all faculty.
