Full Time Tenure Stream – Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in Neuroscience
Department of Biology
Faculty of Science
York University

As a key part of a major University-wide initiative in neuroscience, the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Health at York University plan to make two tenure-stream faculty hires. The incumbents will establish technology-intensive, state-of-the art research programs and engage in collaborative projects that require teams of researchers with advanced skill sets and specialized equipment. These are Research Enhanced Faculty positions partially funded by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF) Vision: Science to Application (VISTA) program. The applicants will receive enhanced start-up funding, additional annual research funds, a reduced undergraduate teaching load, and competitive access to general VISTA research and training funds. They will also contribute to York’s teaching and research priorities in the life sciences, and participate in developing an inter-Faculty Neuroscience Program at the undergraduate and graduate level.

The Department of Biology invites applications for a full-time tenure-stream position in neuroscience at the level of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor. Individuals whose research is in the area of systems neuroscience or cognitive neuroscience with a focus on vision are especially encouraged to apply.

Application Deadline: July 1, 2017
