*Professor and Scientific Director, York Visual Neurophysiology Centre, 
York University*

York University (https://www.yorku.ca/) seeks a Scientific Director for 
our current and planned visual neuroscience facilities. This individual 
will be appointed as a full-time tenured professorial position at the 
Associate Professor or Full Professor level, to commence as early as 
January 1, 2020.

The Scientific Director appointment will last 5 years (renewable) and 
will oversee, as Principal Investigator, the $8.2M equipment budget 
component of a planned $32M neurophysiology facility. The individual 
will provide guidance for ongoing laboratory facility planning and 
development, for recruiting facility staff and relevant faculty, and for 
coordinating research activities and scientific staff within the 
facility. This is a Research-Enhanced Faculty position partially funded 
by the Vision: Science to Application (VISTA) program 
http://vista.info.yorku.ca/. The applicant will receive administrative 
support for their Directorial duties, immediately available lab space, 
enhanced start-up funding for their own research, additional annual 
research funds, a reduced undergraduate teaching load, and competitive 
access to general VISTA research and training funds. This is a 
university-level search: the successful candidate will be affiliated 
with the Department and Faculty that best suits their research and 
teaching interests.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in a neuroscience-related 
discipline, must show evidence of outstanding scientific leadership, and 
have expertise in the design of in vivo neurophysiology research 
facilities. The applicant will combine leading-edge neurophysiological 
techniques (such as multi-neuron recording), behavioral recordings, and 
computational analyses of data from in vivo experimental models of 
visual function and/or dysfunction in areas such as perception, 
cognition, sensorimotor integration, or multisensory integration. We 
particularly encourage candidates who use or develop innovative 
technologies. The applicant should have an outstanding research record 
demonstrating scholarly eminence and a proven ability to attract 
substantial peer-reviewed external research funding and to train 
successful graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. This individual 
will have an international reputation and record of international 
research collaboration.
