Tier II CRC in Invertebrate Neurobiology, University of Western Ontario

Posted 12/2/2016


The Department of Biology at Western University is pleased to announce a search for a Probationary (tenure track) or Tenured Tier II Canada Research Chair in Invertebrate Neurobiology at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The rank and tenure status will be commensurate with the successful applicant’s qualifications and experience. The likely start date will be July 1, 2018 or as negotiated. The CRC in Invertebrate Neurobiology will carry out research on invertebrate animals, such as insects, nematodes or molluscs and develop a competitive research programme in: cognitive or neuro-physiology, neurobiology of behavior, neural target identification, neurobiology of plant-insect interactions, or a related area. Neurobiology is advancing rapidly with new experimental approaches, and the successful applicant will ideally employ cutting-edge methods and techniques in their research, for example optogenetics or other in vivo control or assay of neuronal activity. The Department seeks an energetic, interdisciplinary, and visionary early career scholar committed to the study of Invertebrate Neurobiology. The candidate will hold a doctoral degree in a relevant discipline such as biology, neurobiology or physiology.
