Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience

Positions Available

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine together with the Montefiore Medical Center is launching an ambitious Brain Sciences Initiative. As part of this large-scale expansion, the Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience will recruit a number of highly qualified faculty in the coming years.

Einstein boasts a strong research faculty and enjoys an exceptionally collegial and collaborative environment. The Department of Neuroscience has a 50 year history of conducting cutting-edge research in diverse areas of neuroscience, with strong links to other basic science departments and institutes at Einstein, and growing collaborations with clinical departments at Montefiore.

Assistant and Associate Professors

This year, candidates with research interests in basic, clinical or translational neuroscience will be considered for at least two tenure-track positions at the Assistant and Associate Professor level. Applications from exceptional Full Professors will also be considered. Highly competitive start-up packages are available. Outstanding applicants may also be considered for named endowed Chair and endowed Scholar positions. There are also opportunities for co-appointments in clinical departments.

Applicants must have a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree, with a track record of research excellence. Qualified applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a summary of research accomplishments and goals (maximum 3 pages) to neurosearch@einstein.yu.edu. Applicants should also arrange to have 3 letters of reference sent directly to this email address.

Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2017 and continue until the positions are filled.

Postdoctoral Associate

A postdoctoral position is available for an NIH-funded project at the Pena lab, to study the auditory system, with a focus on neural coding and the neuroethological approach. The postdoctoral fellow will join a collaborative research team interested in the coding of sensory cues and their probabilities in the auditory system of barn owls. The project will require collecting data from neural populations using multi-electrode arrays while manipulating the auditory scene. Brian J. Fischer at Seattle University will collaborate on the theoretical approach. Experience in electrophysiology and familiarity with data analysis and Matlab programming is desired. Applications (including research background and interests, curriculum vitae, and names and contact information for references) or inquiries should be sent to jose.pena@einstein.yu.edu. The position will remain open until filled.

Grant Award | Dr. Julie Secombe
The National Institute on Aging has awarded Julie Secombe, Ph.D., a five-year, $1.69 million grant to study whether transposons influence aging. So far, research on transposons and aging has been limited by available techniques. Dr. Secombe and her team will use novel methods to analyze the genomes of single cells. They will also focus on the role of Myc, a transcription factor (i.e., a protein regulating gene expression) known to affect aging in model organisms. By determining interconnections among Myc transposons that contribute to aging, the team may develop strategies for suppressing this activity and, ultimately, improve human longevity. Dr. Secombe is associate professor of genetics and is associate professor in the Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience. (1R01AG053269-01A1)...more
