Faculty Position in Non-human Primate Neuroscience


Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

The Nash Family Department of Neuroscience and Friedman Brain Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai are accepting applications for a full-time tenure-track investigator, at the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor, specializing in non-human primate neuroscience. Our program seeks a colleague that will join a vibrant and collaborative non-human primate research group at Icahn Mount Sinai in upper Manhattan. The successful applicant will be expected to direct an independent, NIH-funded laboratory conducting leading research on non-human primate brain function at the level of behavior and neural circuits, using neurophysiology, functional neuroimaging, computation, molecular or other emerging approaches. We offer highly competitive salaries and startup packages.

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is a world leader in basic and clinical neuroscience, with strengths in human cognitive neuroscience and psychiatry, and rodent models of human brain disorders. We are particularly interested in applicants whose research directions will complement our existing programs in behavioral, cognitive, circuit, molecular, and clinical neuroscience across species. This could include research using non-human primates to investigate the neural basis of learning, memory, attention, higher-cognitive, social, affective or reward processes.

Applicants should send a cover letter including the names of 3 potential referees, curriculum vitae, up to 3 representative publications, and a research plan (strictly limited to 2 pages) combined into a single PDF document to NHP_neuro_search@mssm.edu. While a diversity statement is not required, applicants should highlight in their cover letter and CV any activities or leadership showing their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Applications will be considered from November 1st, 2022 but will continue to be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is an equal opportunity employer. Mount Sinai values diversity among its faculty, students, and staff and strongly encourages applications from women, persons with disabilities, and other underrepresented groups in science and society.
