Professor, Reader, Senior Lecturer, Lecturer posts available at new Division of Brain Sciences
Closing date: 30 Jun 2012
Address: Division of Brain Sciences, Imperial College London
Imperial College London is making a substantial investment in a new Division of Brain Sciences, which will fund up to a dozen new appointments within the Centres for Neuroscience, Neuropsychopharmacology and Mental Health. We will enhance existing strengths to develop a world-leading portfolio of experimental and translational neuroscience/mental health in collaboration with the Imperial College Academic Health Sciences Centre.
Imperial College London provides an outstanding multidisciplinary environment for basic, clinical and translational research. The Division has substantial research facilities including recently constructed laboratory space at the Hammersmith Hospital and will build on unique resources of its strong patient base (with significant research network support), the embedded Multiple Sclerosis Society and Parkinson’s UK Tissue Banks, the new Wellcome Trust McMichael Clinical Research Facility, clinical and preclinical MRI and PET and the co-localised Imanova, Ltd, one of Europe’s most modern and comprehensive PET molecular imaging centres.
The Division will work closely with neurosciences faculty across the College to develop research particularly in areas of:
• Neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration
• Restorative neurology
• Affective and related disorders
• Biology of addiction
• Molecular neuroimaging
• Clinical translation
The new Division provides a unique career opportunity for individuals with the vision, leadership ability and ambition to be among the best. The level of appointment (Professor, Reader, Senior Lecturer or Lecturer) and a generous support package will be determined according to experience with a focus on long-term career development and success within the College. Applications are particularly (but not exclusively) encouraged from outstanding clinical or non-clinical scientists with expertise in stroke and the neurology of traumatic brain injury, neuroprotection and brain repair, neuroimmunology, the neurobiology of affective disorders, the neurobiology of addiction, personality disorders, cognitive neuroscience, dementia and neurotechnology.
Informal enquiries can be made to the new Head of Division, Prof. Paul Matthews (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications including a letter describing research and career objectives and a full curriculum vitae should be sent to Alice Ashley-Smith (Tel: 0208 383 3299; email: email@example.com) on or before 30 June 2012.
