The Department of Neurosurgery in the School of Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is seeking an investigator holding MD, PhD, or MD/PhD degrees to join our team. Applicants will be considered for a tenured, tenure-track or non-tenure earning position at the rank of instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, or professor commensurate with clinical, research, teaching expertise, and scholarly accomplishments. This individual will collaborate with human neuroscience and neuroengineering research labs across Neurosurgery and Neurology. These labs collectively study the motor and cognitive aspects of movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor, as well as investigate translational advances to treatments for these disorders.
The successful applicant will join a productive and collaborative interdisciplinary research team consisting of investigators in the Departments of Neurosurgery and Neurology at UAB. We will provide ample opportunity for developing independent work with state-of-the-art equipment, facilities, and analytical methods. Ideally these positions will be filled by candidates devoting their full effort towards research, with no clinical duties. Fractional effort towards clinical duties is possible if it meshes with the plans of candidates seeking the tenured and tenure-track positions.
