Position in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience Research, Assistant or Associate Professor (Tenure Track)
The Department of Medical Social Sciences (MSS) (www.mss.northwestern.edu) at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine (www.feinberg.northwestern.edu) invites applications for a full-time position at the Assistant or Associate Professor Level. MSS provides a scientific home for cognitive neuroscientists with research programs that utilize biomedical approaches and clinical populations to investigate mechanisms for cognition. The Department has a strong and diverse extramural research portfolio exceeding $40 million spanning assessment, clinical research, and technology implementation in the hospital setting. MSS is a basic sciences unit within the medical school comprised almost entirely of Ph.D. scientists conducting human-subjects research with an outreach mission to clinical departments. As such, the Department is adept at supporting close collaborations with the many clinical centers at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. We are seeking a cognitive neuroscientist with a research portfolio that includes invasive neural recording and/or stimulation methods, who would utilize sEEG/ECoG experimental approaches in collaboration with physician scientists at the Northwestern Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, the Northwestern Medicine Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorder Center, and/or the Northwestern Medicine Malnati Brain Tumor Institute. In addition to utilizing these neurosurgical opportunities for basic research on mechanisms for cognition, the ideal candidate would be interested in experimental studies that seek to improving understanding and treatment of the cognitive disorders experienced by the clinical population under investigation. We are also interested in candidates with expertise in neuroimaging and we are home to world-class MRI scanning resources provided by Center for Translational Imaging, a neuroimaging facility that maintains research-dedicated MRI scanners as well as equipment for scalp EEG, noninvasive brain stimulation, eye-movement tracking, and physiological recording. We are seeking candidates with a strong collaborative orientation, an impressive publication record, and a history of extramural funding. Participation in MSS Departmental training activities and University service are also expected and valued. Candidates would additionally have the opportunity to seek affiliation with Northwestern’s many department-, school-, and campus-spanning institutes and centers, including the Northwestern University Interdepartmental Neuroscience Ph.D. program, the Institute for Innovations in Developmental Sciences, the Mesulam Center for Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease, the Institute for Public Health and Medicine, the Simpson Querrey Institute for BioNanotechnology, and others.
