Professional Researcher Openings

Project Scientist - Neurobiology

Job Description

The Department of Neurobiology in the School of Biological Sciences is conducting an open search for Project Scientists (non-tenured, Assistant, Associate, or Full level). At UC San Diego, Project Scientists are academic researchers who are expected to make significant and creative contributions to a research team but are not necessarily leaders of the research team. They are not required to carry out independent research or develop an independent research reputation but will publish and carry out research or creative programs with supervision by a member of the Professor or Professional Research series. University and public service are encouraged but not required and they do not have formal teaching responsibilities. Appointments and duration vary depending on the length of the research project and availability of funding. Research topics could include but are not limited to: neural circuits, neural transmitter switching, genetics, cholinergic transmission, axon guidance, and synapse formation and neurodevelopmental disorders

The School of Biological Sciences at UCSD is a vibrant center of scientific discovery, innovation, and collaboration. Our large research base spans many areas of biology. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.

Qualifications

All candidates must have earned a Ph.D in Neurobiology or related field and have a minimum of 4 years of postdoctoral experience in one or more of the following areas: neural circuits, neural transmitter switching, genetics, cholinergic transmission, axon guidance, synapse formation, and neurodevelopmental disorders.
