Joint Faculty and Research Scientist
New York University: NYU - NY: Faculty of Arts and Science (FAS): Center for Neural Science
Location
NYU Center for Neural Science & Flatiron Institute Center for Computational Neuroscience
Open Date

Feb 4, 2021


Description

The Center for Neural Science at New York University (NYU), jointly with the Center for Computational Neuroscience (CCN) at the Flatiron Institute of the Simons Foundation, invites applications for an open rank joint position, with a preference for junior or mid-career candidates. We seek exceptional candidates that use computational frameworks and methods to develop concepts, models, and tools for understanding brain function. Areas of interest include sensory representation and perception, memory, decision making, adaptation and learning, and motor control.

The position is a joint appointment between NYU and CCN, with the appointee spending half time in each location (both in lower Manhattan). The NYU position is a tenure-line faculty position at the Assistant, Associate, or full Professor level depending on the candidate’s background and experience. The holder of an Assistant level appointment will be considered for promotion to a tenured Associate professorship according to NYU's standard policies and
procedures. The corresponding position at CCN may be Associate or Full Research Scientist, or Group Leader, again depending on candidate experience. The initial appointment is for three years, and is renewable, subject to satisfactory progress in research.

A Ph.D. in a relevant field, such as neuroscience, engineering, physics or applied mathematics, is required. The responsibilities for this joint position include but are not limited to: establishing a research program with a significant computational component; participating in the international neuroscience research community; teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels at NYU; contributing to the scientific culture and activities at the Flatiron Institute by collaborating with other researchers, hiring and supervising junior researchers, and assisting with the organization of CCN related conferences, workshops, group seminars and summer programs.

Review of applications will begin 1 March 2021.

Important: in order to be considered for this joint appointment, candidates must submit their application to both CNS and CCN.

 


Qualifications

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:
Education
A successful candidate will have a Ph.D.  in neuroscience, physics, engineering, applied mathematics or a related discipline. One or more years of postdoctoral research experience is desirable.

Experience

  • Demonstrated abilities in establishing a neuroscience-related research program, embracing the opportunities offered by a joint position between NYU CNS and CCN. The research program must include a significant computational component.
  • A record of excellence in scientific publication.
  • Ability to teach effectively at both the undergraduate and the graduate level.
  • Strong oral and written communication skills, supporting collaboration and cooperation across traditional disciplinary boundaries.
  • Knowledge of software development and dissemination, either for scientific simulation, model fitting, experimental design, or analysis of modern high-throughput experimental data acquisition, is desirable.

Application Instructions

Application materials should include a brief cover letter, a statement describing current and planned research and teaching activities, a curriculum vitae including a list of publications, and names and contact information for three references.

Because diversity and inclusion are an important part of the NYU mission, candidates should include a paragraph in their cover letter indicating how diversity and inclusion figure into their past, present, and future teaching, research, and community engagement. (Additional information can be found here: http://as.nyu.edu/departments/facultydiversity/recruitment/diversity-statements.html).

All applications will be reviewed by a joint committee consisting of members from CNS and CCN.
