Assistant Professor of Neurology

Description

The Department of Neurology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an Assistant Professor position in the non-tenure research track. Expertise is required in the specific area of noninvasive brain stimulation methodologies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), the use of cognitive neuroscience to study structure-function and network-function relationships in the language system of the brain and to develop and implement neuromodulation-based interventions for persons with aphasia and other deficits of cognition, statistical analysis, development and implementation of human subject trials that combine behavioral assessments, neuroimaging, and measures of cortical neurophysiology. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree.

Research or scholarship responsibilities may include developing collaborative and independent research programs related to neuromodulation. The candidate may co-supervise postdoctoral fellows, students, and research staff coordinating NIH-funded grant efforts with local, national, and international collaborators. The candidate may participate in writing grants, reports, and manuscripts.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE. Minorities/women/individuals with disabilities/protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
