The Section of Neurobiology in the Division of Biological Sciences is conducting an open search for Project Scientists (non-tenured, Assistant, Associate or Full level). At UC San Diego, Project Scientists are academic researchers who are expected to make significant and creative contributions to a research team but are not necessarily leaders of the research team. They are not required to carry out independent research or develop an independent research reputation but will publish and carry out research or creative programs with supervision by a member of the Professor or Professional Research series. University and public service are encouraged but not required and they do not have formal teaching responsibilities. Appointments and duration vary depending on the length of the research project and availability of funding. Research topics could include but are not limited to: neural circuits, neural transmitter switching, genetics, cholinergic transmission, axon guidance, and synapse formation and neurodevelopmental disorders.
The Division of Biological Sciences at UCSD is a vibrant center of scientific discovery, innovation, and collaboration. Our large research base spans many areas of biology. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.
Appointment level is dependent on academic experience, scholarly achievements, and the needs of Neurobiology. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on University of California pay scales.
Position will remain open until filled based on the on-going needs in the Section of Neurobiology.
