Job Title Collegiate Faculty (Open Rank)
Department School of Neuroscience
Institution or Company Virginia Tech
Application Deadline Open Until Filled
Position Start Date Immediately
Job Categories Neuroscience, Behavioral, Cognitive, Experimental, Clinical
Academic Field(s) Neuroscience
Job Description

A bold and innovative initiative, the Virginia Tech School of Neuroscience was launched six years ago to globally recruit outstanding students interested in obtaining a degree in Neuroscience. Virginia Tech has rapidly become a destination university for the nation's best students interested in the discipline, having grown to over 800 undergraduate students today. Our Neuroscience Ph.D. program, approved in 2020, will launch in Fall 2021. The School offers a unique interdisciplinary curriculum spanning multiple disciplines and colleges. The broad curriculum offers traditional courses in Cellular and Molecular, Cognitive, and Experimental Neuroscience; advanced disciplinary courses including Neuroimmunology, Neurogenetics, Computational Neuroscience, and Neuroendocrinology; and innovative electives courses such as Language and Communication Disorders, Clinical Neuroscience, Neuroeconomics, Neuroscience and Society, and Artificial Intelligence.

The Collegiate Faculty track is a non-tenure track with ranks at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Collegiate Professor levels. This rank offers a clear path to promotion with increasingly longer contracts and promotion criteria clearly defined by the School of Neuroscience, College of Science, and university guidelines. Collegiate faculty participate in all four missions of the School: education, scholarship, service, and commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. The successful collegiate faculty candidate will have a primary commitment to the School's instructional mission. The focus is on the delivery of undergraduate education with the potential to contribute to graduate education. A substantial portion of this position will be dedicated to the delivery of core courses in the School’s undergraduate curriculum, including courses such as Introduction to Neuroscience, Cell and Molecular Neuroscience, and Diseases of the Nervous System, as well as the opportunity to develop unique courses based on the applicant's specific areas of expertise. Scholarship will include producing pedagogical innovations, scholarship of teaching and learning, or disciplinary research independently or as part of an existing research team at Virginia Tech.

Applicants for this position must have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Cellular and Molecular Biology, or a related field and experience teaching in higher education, preferably at the undergraduate level. The search committee will consider applicants across career stages and the rank of the successful candidate will be commensurate with experience.

Academic Field(s) Neuroscience, Cell biology, Biochemistry
Job Description The Notterpek laboratory investigates how the loss of glial insulation around axons, called myelin, contributes to the pathogenesis of hereditary and age-related neural disorders. Recent studies also suggest an involvement of myelin damage in the underlying and painful symptoms of trigeminal neuralgia. Current research is focused on understanding the subcellular changes within neural cells that underlie the progressive nature of these disorders and normal aging-associated myelin degeneration. The fellow will take part is studies on the involvement of cholesterol and lipid metabolism in the pathogenesis of inherited demyelinating neuropathies. They will have opportunities to mentor undergraduate students and lead in the design and execution of in vitro and in vivo experiments, the collection and analysis of data, and preparation of manuscripts.
