Professors of Neuroscience - Imaging

Texas Tech University and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center have collaborated to expand research in neuroscience with an emphasis on multidisciplinary research.  Two full professor positions are available and will be based at Texas Tech University and involve joint appointments with the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. A new 4,000 sf core facility with a Siemens 3-T Magnetom TRIO MRI with functional and diffusion tensor capabilities and 4,000 sf of support offices and laboratories is available.  The footprint includes space for 2 additional fully capable MRIs in the core facility. Candidates will be in any Biological Science or Engineering department including but not limited to Electrical Engineering, Biological Sciences, Psychology, and Human Development and Family Studies. Support from other core facilities is available in biotechnology, genomics and high performance computing. Both of these positions are intended to add critical mass to our new Neuroimaging Institute and successful applicants will be expected to work with current faculty to grow this institute. A separate search will be initiated to find a director for this institute. We are particularly interested in building on our strengths in neural and behavioral biology including but not limited to drug and alcohol addiction, autism, aging, and brain development.  Other research areas of functional imaging outside of neuroscience may be considered.

Applicants will be expected to have significant competitive grant funding and a clear record of scholarship, research productivity, mentoring, team building, outreach, and teaching.  Multidisciplinary research across academic departments is encouraged. Graduate advising and teaching is expected in areas of interest to the faculty.  Service to the institutions and the profession are important aspects of a successful applicant. Level of academic appointment is open to all ranks, but preference will be given to individuals who qualify for full professor or already are at that rank. Applicants must submit a letter of interest expressing their vision for research contributions and graduate education goals, a complete resume/CV, the names of five references who may be contacted to provide a professional assessment of research and graduate education capabilities, and start-up requirements to Dr. Taylor Eighmy, Vice President for Research, Texas Tech University at taylor.eighmy at ttu.edu<mailto:taylor.eighmy at ttu.edu>. These positions shall remain open until the positions are filled. Texas Tech University is an equal opportunity employer.
