LSU HEALTH SCIENCES CENTER IN NEW ORLEANS
Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy
Tenure Track Faculty Position

The Department of Cell Biology & Anatomy at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans is seeking applications for a tenure-track faculty position as Assistant or Associate Professor.  We are particularly interested in individuals with a background of research in cellular or systems neuroscience who complement and diversify our present base of expertise in electrophysiological, imaging, behavioral, and computational approaches. Significant collaborative opportunities exist on campus in conjunction with the Neuroscience Center and the Alcohol Research Center.  Applicants must have an earned doctorate (MD, PhD or both); successful candidates must have a clear vision on how to maintain (or establish) a funded research program, as well as the skills and publication record to support this vision. Existing extramural funding is expected at the Associate Professor level, and strongly preferred at the Assistant Professor level. Salary and start-up packages are competitive. We especially encourage applications from women and under-represented minority candidates. Interested candidates should submit a current curriculum vitae that includes previous and current research support, teaching experience, a statement of research plans, a letter of interest and the names of three references electronically to SOM-Recruits@lsuhsc.edu (Reference # 82 045).
