Neuroscience Research Assistant Professor

Job Type: 
Binghamton University

The Freshman Research Immersion (FRI) program at Binghamton University will hire a Research Assistant Professor, to begin August 13, 2018. This full-time position is for a three-year duration and candidates must have graduate degree before starting. This is a 10 month non-tenure track faculty position, with additional extra service commitment for two-summer weeks. This position is for Neuroscience (open to Ph.D.’s with appropriate neuroscience background).


FRI Neuroscience is a highly successful program in which a Research Assistant Professor guides freshmen and sophomores in innovative research that advances the field of neuroscience. The Research Assistant Professor shapes the research theme. For example, past FRI cohorts have employed rodent models to interrogate neurobiological mechanisms of disease under the guidance of the Research Assistant Professor conducting research in that area. Essentially, this position will entail teaching large numbers of college students (~30 per cohort) how to conduct authentic research and, in doing so, will help students develop the professional skills desired by graduate schools and employers. Within that process and working with a faculty advisory team, the Research Assistant Professor maintains and/or expands his/her research program. The Research Assistant Professor reports to the FRI Director, and also works closely with the faculty team of the Neuroscience research stream. Overall, FRI provides an excellent training program for new PhDs and, thus, is an exceptional transition that positions the Research Assistant Professors for a wider array of future STEM positions (from full range of higher education institutions to STEM education research).
