Faculty Position-Department Of Developmental Neurobiology

Memphis, TN, US


JOB TYPE: Permanent, FullTime

The Department of Developmental Neurobiology at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (St. Jude) starts a new phase of hiring that will focus on exceptional and creative scientists for a FACULTY position in neuronal cell biology. We are seeking an investigator to lead a multidisciplinary research program that thematically applies cell biological paradigms and approaches to mechanistically decipher the core cellular mechanisms of neurons in the developing nervous system. Areas of interest include mechanisms underlying genome organization, neuronal motility, axon or dendrite morphogenesis, physiology of neuronal trafficking events, synaptogenesis, cell biology of synaptic transmission, and how these processes occur in live animals or are perturbed in neurodevelopmental disorders. Early career investigators interested in contributing to a culture of excellence at St. Jude are particularly encouraged to apply. This search is also open for mid-career investigators with a strong record of independent research.

The research environment at St. Jude is highly interactive with collaborative opportunities across all basic research and clinical departments, as well as access to state-of-the-art institutional shared resources managed by Ph.D. level scientists. Developmental Neurobiology investigators have access to specialized departmental shared resources that include animal behavior, human stem cells, live cell imaging, cell sorting and advanced image processing and analysis. Our commitment to lead in cutting edge imaging includes advanced systems including but not limited to the Lattice Light Sheet microscope, Helios and Teneo 3D electron microscopes, multiphoton microscope with resonant scanning and optogenetic capabilities.

We offer very competitive packages, including generous startup funds, equipment, laboratory space, personnel support and potential institutional support beyond the start-up phase. A faculty position at the Assistant and Associate Member level may be considered.

Submit a curriculum vitae, a 2-3 page summary of research interests, and the names of three references directly online or send to:
