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
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
