Dear Dr. Nirenberg:
The enclosed notice, which will appear in Science and Neuroscience Newsletter, describes a tenure-track position in Neurobiology. The rank and salary for this opening are negotiable.
Candidates for this position should have demonstrated expertise in cellular, molecular and developmental neurobiology. In addition to establishing a vigorous research program, the successful applicant will be expected to develop strong research ties with the members of the Department of Biology as well as with other members of the neuroscience community. Currently there are over 40 faculty members who work on different aspects of neuroscience in the University of Iowa. The new faculty member will be able to draw graduate students from two sources: the Department of Biology and the interdepartmental Neuroscience Ph.D. Program.
The new appointee will have an excellent opportunity to participate in the Neurobiology Program Project which has been receiving undisrupted funding from NIH since it was first established in the Department of Biology in 1979. The projects in the Program include: development of identified neurons in culture; neuronal death during metamorphosis; neurosecretory control of molting hormones; genetic dissection of ionic channel functions, generation of rhythmic pattern in the CNS; development of specific connectivities and recognition molecules.
We will appreciate your help in filling this position with an outstanding scientist, either by posting the enclosed announcement or by putting me in touch with an interested candidate. Applications will be considered as they are received, until the position is filled. However, we expect to begin the interview process by early May. The University of Iowa is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
Sincerely yours,
Jeffrey Denburg
