The overarching goal of Burke Neurological Institute (BNI), 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 BNI 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 2018 or early 2019. While we are willing to consider applications from those broadly interested in neural repair, we are particularly interested in glial and oligodendrocyte biology. We are also interested in applications from candidates with strong expertise in neurovascular interactions in the CNS. Successful candidates will receive a competitive support package and will be expected to develop an innovative, extramurally funded independent research program.
Strong interest in microglial, astrocyte, or oligodendrocyte biology or synaptogenesis using animal or human models of disease, especially repair after injury; strong interest in interfacing with our faculty.
Demonstrated ability to mentor students, post-docs and/or junior faculty; record of federal of private funding.
To apply, please submit the following materials in a single PDF document to Katrina Wnorowski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All applications must be sent electronically. A background check is required for employment.
