Assistant Professor - Data Science and Computational Neuroscience

University of California, San Diego


The Neurobiology Section of the Division of Biological Sciences and the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI) at the University of California San Diego jointly invite applications for a faculty position in computational neuroscience at the level of tenure-track Assistant Professor. Individuals who investigate brain dynamics underlying behavior with innovative quantitative, computational, and machine-learning methodologies are particularly encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will be expected to interface with a diverse array of investigators on campus, including experimental neuroscientists who generate large-scale functional datasets.

The Division of Biological Sciences at UCSD is a vibrant center of scientific discovery, innovation, and collaboration. Our large research base spans many areas of biology and has one of the most celebrated graduate programs in the country. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.

Funded with a $75M endowment, the mission of HDSI is to explore the scientific foundations for the new field of data science. These foundations include both the principles, methods, and tools that will enable us to understand the nature of digital data, and also the intersections between this new field and existing disciplines of human enquiry. HDSI is a new strategic academic institute tasked with hosting and coordination of Data Science research and education activities. Among HDSI academic programs are Data Science major and minor currently with nearly 600 undergraduate students.

Successful applicants will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate students with the Division of Biological Sciences and HDSI. All candidates are expected to establish a vigorous program of high-quality federally funded research.

Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in neuroscience, neurobiology, or a related discipline or have the Ph.D. completed by the date of hire. Candidates who have created or contributed to programs that aim to increase access and success of underrepresented students or faculty in the sciences, or have detailed plans to accomplish such goals are preferred. In addition to excellence and creativity in research and scholarship, successful candidates must also demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion in higher education.

Review of applications will begin October 31, 2019 and continue until the position is filled. Applications must be submitted electronically through AP-Online Recruit website: https://apol-recruit.ucsd.edu/JPF02260.
