The Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine invites applications for a tenure-eligible faculty position at the Assistant/Associate Professor level in the areas of molecular, cellular, or systems neuroscience. We are particularly interested in candidates who explore physiological mechanisms using innovative techniques in electrophysiology, biophysics, photonics, and/or bioengineering. We expect the appointee to conduct vigorous independent research and participate in professional and graduate training.

The new appointee will be part of an actively expanding Department (http://www.uchsc.edu/physiology/). We recently moved to a new state-of-the-art research facility at the Anschutz Medical Campus (http://www.uchsc.edu/anschutzmedicalcampus/) and will appoint up to three new faculty members over the next three years. Current faculty in the Department have research programs in systems neuroscience, sensory physiology, developmental neurobiology, synaptic function, cell signaling, ion transport and channel biology, and endocrine and reproductive physiology. We especially encourage candidates with research interests that complement and extend existing research in the Department to apply. Additional scientific interactions occur within the interdepartmental programs: Neuroscience; Cell, Stem Cell, and Developmental Biology; Reproductive Science; Molecular Biology; Biomolecular Structure; Cancer Biology; and Immunology. Many of these programs have associated core facilities. For example, the Neuroscience Program provides its members with core facilities in light and electron microscopy, and mouse and zebrafish gene manipulation technologies (http://www.uchsc.edu/neuroscience/). Opportunities also exist for interactions with the downtown campus of the University of Colorado Denver.

Salary is commensurate with skills and experience. The University of Colorado offers a full benefits package. Information on University benefits programs, including eligibility, is located at http://www.cu.edu/pbs/.

Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2008 and continue until the position is filled.

The University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine is dedicated to ensuring a safe and secure environment for our faculty, staff, students, and visitors. To assist in achieving that goal, we conduct background investigations for all prospective employees prior to their employment.

The University of Colorado is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment.
