The LSR is searching for a new tenure-track investigator. This post was actually advertised a year ago, but the Federal Hiring Freeze came in before we interviewed any candidates.  We have now been given permission to proceed with hiring. The post has been re-advertisement on the NIH website at 


And the text is appended below:

Review begins: March 5, 2018
The intramural program of the National Eye Institute invites applications for a position as an independent research scientist within the Laboratory of Sensorimotor Research.   This position will be tenure track with the potential for conversion to tenure within seven years.  Applicants will be expected to establish an independent research program related to understanding the neurobiology of the visual system in awake, non-human primates.
The Laboratory of Sensorimotor Research is devoted to understanding the organization of the brain related to the control of eye movements and visual perception.  It has excellent facilities for the study of these systems in awake behaving primates, including dedicated computer systems, a machine shop, an electronics shop, and a histology lab. The Laboratory also provides the opportunity to collaborate on studies of human patients with diseases related to the visual and oculomotor systems.  Applicants should have a PhD or an equivalent doctoral degree and an outstanding record of accomplishments in visuomotor systems neuroscience. 
Applications will be reviewed starting on March 5 2017, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Candidates should send a brief cover letter, curriculum vitae, bibliography, a one- or two-page statement of current research interests, copies of up to five recent, relevant publications, and have three letters of recommendation sent to Richard.Krauzlis at nih.gov (email) or Richard Krauzlis, Search Committee Chair, Building 49, Room 2A50, NIH, Bethesda, MD 20892-4435 (paper mail). NIH is an equal opportunity employer.
