The overarching goal of Burke Medical Research Institute (BMRI), an academic affiliate of Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM), is to leverage the most innovative and highest quality neuroscience to restore brain and spinal cord function in those with neurological injury including stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease, age related macular degeneration. Twenty faculty funded by federal and private agencies work alongside 100 individuals on a beautiful 60-acre campus in White Plains, New York, 15 miles from the heart of New York City.
In seeking to considerably expand our faculty, a search committee comprised of BMRI and WCM faculty invites applications for a full time, tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant and Associate Professor with a flexible anticipated start date late in 2017 or early 2018. While we are willing to consider applications from those broadly interested in neural repair, we are particularly interested in microglial and astrocyte biology, synaptogenesis, or myelination. Successful candidates will receive a competitive support package and will be expected to develop an innovative, extramurally funded independent research program.
The initial deadline for review of applications is March 31, 2017. A background check is required for employment.
