Faculty Positions


Assistant Professor – Neuroanatomy

Proper connectivity and signaling across regions of the nervous system, whether in the brain or spinal cord, are essential to normal neuronal function yet many brain and spinal circuits remain poorly understood and poorly mapped. The Department of Neuroscience at The University of Texas at Dallas seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member with research focus on understanding the connectivity of circuits within the nervous system that are important for sensory, cognitive, or motor function. Expertise in neuroanatomy of such circuits as well as technical expertise in circuit manipulation using opto/chemogenetics and tracing/activity-recording techniques such as in vivo multiphoton or miniscope imaging of reporter expression in live animals would be desirable. This faculty member would be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses on neural circuitry and the use of advanced imaging and opto/chemogenetic techniques.

Assistant Professor – Neuroscience

Stress is a major contributor to numerous neurological disorders. The Department of Neuroscience at The University of Texas at Dallas seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member with research focus on understanding the impacts of stress on the nervous system. The Department currently has research programs studying the neurocircuitry of fear and anxiety, the neurobiology of maternal stress on dopaminergic signaling, cortical circuits relevant for alcohol and cocaine addiction, and the influence of stress on migraine pathology. Expertise in neuroanatomy of such circuits as well as models of the interaction and influence of stress on these circuits would be desirable. This faculty member would be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses on neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropathology related to stress and its influence on brain health.

Assistant Professor – Single Cell Methods

Advances in Next Generation Sequencing are fundamentally changing the understanding of the nervous system. The Department of Neuroscience at The University of Texas at Dallas seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member with expertise in single cell methods (e.g., single cell RNA seq) as a tool to understand the diversity of functions of nervous system cells in health and disease. The focus would be on a scientist using human tissue along with rodent tissue to explore species differences, but applicants with expertise in either species will be considered. Areas of interest would optimally align with strengths of the Department in Learning & Memory, Neurobiology of Fear & Anxiety, Neurological Disorders such as Stroke and Tinnitus, or Sensory Signaling and Pain. The new hire would be expected to develop undergraduate and graduate courses in applications of single cell technologies to neuroscience and neurology.

Open Rank – Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

The Department of Psychology in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences (BBS) at The University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) is accepting applications for a tenure system position in developmental cognitive neuroscience. We particularly seek mid-career applicants with strong, funded research programs. Candidates at all levels with funded or highly fundable research will be considered if their interests and strengths are highly aligned with the desired area. Candidates who use innovative methodological or analytical approaches to the measurement of brain activity or structure are particularly sought. Preference will be given to applicants with interests in development during late childhood and adolescence and its relevance for understanding trajectories of cognitive and neural change across the remainder of the lifespan.
