The Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neurosciences (CMBN) at Rutgers,
Newark was created a quarter of a century ago and has grown into a leading
research center in Neuroscience, with a solid group of world-class faculty
whose research spans systems, behavioral, and computational neuroscience,
with methodological approaches as varied as electrophysiology,
neuropharmacology, and functional imaging. Moreover, Neuroscience research
on the Rutgers Newark campus is growing with hires in social and affective
neuroscience in the Department of Psychology, cellular neuroscience in the
Department of Biology, and the recent establishment of an interdepartmental
Rutgers Brain Imaging Center.


CMBN is ready to move into a new era with new opportunities and a new
vision. A number of faculty positions have opened up, and this presents an
opportunity to rebuild and reconfigure CMBN. Rutgers Newark therefore
invites applications for the position of Director of CMBN to guide this
transition. We are seeking a world class leader in neuroscience to direct
CMBN and to integrate the existing expertise and facilities into an even
more impressive neuroscience community.


In addition to outstanding communication and interpersonal skills,
candidates must have a PhD and/or MD degree, a sustained track record of
distinguished scientific accomplishments and external grant funding in an
area related to CMBN's research interests, and a demonstrated commitment to
excellence in post-graduate training.  The Director will support the
development of research activities at CMBN based on a clearly articulated
scientific vision, and foster increased interactions with other
Neuroscientists in the Psychology and Biology Departments of the
Rutgers-Newark Campus. The Director is also expected to maintain a grant
funded research program in his/her own laboratory, and play a key role in
the recruitment of new faculty.


Professorial appointment with tenure will be made to the successful
candidate.  Salary is highly competitive and commensurate with
qualifications and experience. Rutgers University is an equal opportunity
employer and encourages the applications from qualified women and minority
