The Department of Neuroscience at the University of Lethbridge seeks a neuroscientist to fill a tenure track position at the assistant professor level in Molecular Neuroscience, to begin July 1, 2013, subject to budgetary approval. Applicants should have a promising research program. We are especially interested in recruiting a neuroscientist who has expertise in functional imaging at a cellular level, but those with expertise in other similar methodologies are encouraged to apply. Ideally this person will have a focus in cortical plasticity and/or cortical development.
The position is within the Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience
(CCBN), a 60,000 sq ft, world-class research facility equipped with
exceptional infrastructure, including 3 NMRs, electron microscope,
multiphoton and several confocal microscopes, high throughput digital
imaging, flow cytometer, deep sequencing platform, in vitro recording
facilities, multiple in vivo ensemble single unit recording suites,
PCR, dense-array electroencephalography, voltage-sensitive dye recording
lab, dedicated parallel computing cluster, and numerous state-of-the-art
surgical and behavioural testing suites. For more information about
the CCBN, please visit http://ccbn.uleth.ca/about.php.
The University of Lethbridge is a small, comprehensive university
with strengths in Behavioural and Systems Neuroscience and a strong
PhD program in Neuroscience. The successful applicant will have teaching
responsibilities at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The University
aspires to hire individuals who have demonstrated considerable potential
for excellence in teaching, research and scholarship. New faculty
members are eligible to apply for university funding in support of
research and scholarly activities.

The University is an inclusive and equitable campus encouraging applications from qualified women and men including persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities and Aboriginal persons.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a two-page research proposal, a letter of application including teaching interests, and names and contact information for at least three referees. Send this material and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent directly to Dr. Robert J. Sutherland, Chair of the Neuroscience Search Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org). Consideration of completed applications will begin by October 15, 2012, and will continue until the position is filled..
