Texas A&M University and Texas A&M University Health Science Center invite applications for four tenure-track/tenured faculty positions to begin in Fall 2017 in the area of spinal cord injury (SCI).

The hiring initiative builds upon a generous gift from The Institute for Rehabilitation and Research (TIRR) Foundation and aims to build research strength in the area of SCI to create an internationally-recognized center for interdisciplinary research in neural trauma, spinal injury and recovery of function. We seek creative, collaborative thinkers who use biomedical, behavioral, or engineering approaches to address fundamental questions regarding the neurobiology of injury and/or solutions to promote functional recovery, with the ultimate goal of bench-to-bedside translation.

Successful candidates will have a faculty appointment in Biology, Psychology, Neuroscience and Experimental Therapeutics, or Engineering, based upon their research approach and background. Faculty will also be affiliated with the Texas A&M Institute for Neuroscience and will be recognized as TIRR Foundation Fellows. Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D., a record of outstanding achievement as evidenced by publications in the area of SCI, and a promising (assistant professor) or externally funded (associate, full professor) research program. Undergraduate, graduate and/or professional teaching requirements will depend on policies of the department of hire.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, the names of three potential referees, and selected reprints/preprints, all as a single PDF file to Chair, Spinal Cord Injury Search Committee, at Chair@tamin.tamu.edu. Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation forwarded to this e-mail address. The search committee will begin to review applications in October and will continue to process new applications until the positions are filled.
