The University of Maryland School of Medicine is the first public and the fifth oldest medical school in the United States, and the first to institute a residency training program. The Department of Psychiatry has more than $11 million in federal funding on a wide variety of research topics. The department ranks in the top 20 of all medical schools for NIH funding. The department includes several research programs that together represent one of the most comprehensive programs of research on psychotic disorders in the world. The department has over 115 full-time clinical and scientific faculty members and the potential for a multitude of collaborative clinical and research related opportunities across the school, the 12-hospital University of Maryland Medical System, and the Veterans Administration Maryland Health System.
The University of Maryland Department of Psychiatry and the Brain Science Research Consortium Unit (BSRCU) are seeking a senior level basic or translational scientist with expertise in neuroinflammation to serve as the Director of the Center for Neuroinflammatory Disorders. BSRCU was created to improve alignment of research ongoing in the basic and clinical departments, as well as to promote a robust transdisciplinary effort, the BSRCU includes senior basic and clinical faculty with a common goal to answer "big science" questions in key areas of neuroscience research. The BSRCU identified three scientific areas that carry strong potential to spurn the caliber of research the consortium is aiming to achieve. Leading the Center for Neuroinflammatory Disorders, the Director will oversee a working group of 15-30 members from across the School of Medicine collaborating on the theme of neuroinflammation, one of the three key areas identified by the BSRCU.
