The Center for Integrative Brain Research at the Seattle Children's Research Institute in conjunction with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington School of Medicine seeks a scientist to be appointed full-time, without tenure, at the Associate Professor or Professor level. Applicants must possess PhD and/or MD degrees (or foreign equivalent) and a strong history of active nationally funded research grants. Established investigators should use molecular, genetic, behavioral, imaging and/or electrophysiological techniques to study mechanisms underlying the neurobiology of Attention and Impulse Disorders. Research areas of interests include ADHD, addiction, OCD, Tourette Syndrome, and/or anxiety disorders. The research should be translational and complementary to interests of current faculty. The Center's research vision is to discover the neuronal basis of pediatric neurological disorder through integrative team research. We are particularly interested in the neurobiology of the basal ganglia, amygdala and neocortex, but also MRI studies associated with attention and impulse disorders and the underlying genetic basis. Responsibilities of the position include development of an independent, extramurally funded research program in Neuroscience and teaching and mentoring graduate and post-doctoral students and junior faculty investigators. Successful applicants will enjoy a competitive start-up package and excellent space and state-of-the-art facilities in the Research Institute, which is near the University of Washington South Lake Union Campus, the Hutchinson's Cancer Center and the Allen Institute for Brain Science. He or she will be appointed as faculty at the University of Washington and will be part of a Center with diverse interests and expertise.
