Summary Description: The Departments of Neurology and Microbiology and Immunology in partnership with the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology, the Divisions of Rheumatology of the department of Medicine, the Columbia Center for Translational Immunology, and the Columbia Translational Neuroscience Initiative seek faculty with expertise in neuroinflammation/neuroimmunology to lead a translational program involving basic and clinical research. We are particularly interested in hiring clinician-scientists to see Multiple Sclerosis patients at the Neurological Institute of New York and in parallel carry out their own research program in any of the basic or clinical areas such as but not limited to glial cells, immune responses, clinical trials, biomarkers, and phenotype-genotype correlation. We encourage applications for tenure track positions at the rank of Assistant and Associate Professor level, and will also consider applications from more senior investigators for positions at the full Professor level. Successful candidates are expected to develop and maintain an independent and externally funded research program and to interface with clinical and translational efforts at Columbia. Columbia University has a world-renowned program in neurobiology and behavior and in medical and surgical neurology. Faculty will be affiliated with both the Departments of Neurology and/or Pathology and Cell Biology, and of Microbiology and Immunology, and with opportunities for interaction with other institutes and groups at the Medical Center and Morningside Heights campus, including the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute, and access to core facilities such as high-throughput screening at Columbia University and at the New York Genome Center.
Minimum Qualifications: Research interest and experience in Multiple Sclerosis required. Successful candidates are expected to develop and maintain an independent and externally funded research program and to interface with clinical and translational efforts at Columbia.
Preferred Qualifications: External research funding is preferred.
