Neurobiologist faculty opening

The Department of Biological Sciences at Northern Kentucky University invites applications for a tenure track assistant professor position in neurobiology starting Fall 2018. We are especially interested in applicants with expertise in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and/or the neural basis of behavior. The successful candidate will teach undergraduate courses, contribute to advising and mentoring, and run a research program involving undergraduate students.

The Department of Biological Sciences has 22 full-time faculty members and approximately 400 undergraduate students and will offer a B.S. in Neuroscience degree beginning in Fall 2017. In Fall 2018, NKU will open the Health Innovation Center – a new building dedicated to transdisciplinary biomedical and human health research. Through this facility, the new faculty member will have access to a state-of-the-art vivarium, two neuroscience teaching laboratories, and neuroscience research laboratories and spaces equipped for tissue culture, histology, confocal microscopy, behavioral testing, and neurochemistry.

The Department of Biological Sciences is committed to increasing the diversity of the campus community and the curriculum. Candidates who can contribute to these goals are encouraged to apply and asked to identify their strengths and experiences in these areas (e.g. recruitment and retention, teaching, research and/or service).

Located seven miles from downtown Cincinnati in an area offering an outstanding quality of life, NKU is a nationally recognized metropolitan university committed to active engagement with the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati region of nearly two million people.
