The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) is a not-for-profit, independent academic institution. In addition to the main RCSI campus in Dublin the College also has a strong and expanding international presence with campuses in the Middle and Far East.
Applications are invited from suitably qualified and experienced individuals for the following vacancy:
Associate Professor / Senior Lecturer - Neuroscience and In vivo Imaging
It is expected that the newly appointed Associate Professor / Senior Lecturer will be internationally recognised in the areas of intravital microscopy/multi-photon microscopy and pre-clinical animal models of acute and/or chronic neurological disorders. We envisage that the candidate will deliver an active research program in one of the following disease areas:
• Ischemic stroke/multi-infarct dementia
• Alzheimer’s disease and/or FTLD
• Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
A research interest in cell survival and cell death signalling or paracrine signalling in acute and chronic neurodegeneration (neuron-microglia-endothelial interface: non-cell autonomous cell signalling) will be of advantage. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate experience in leading an internationally competitive research group and will have a proven record in achieving results. A PhD or MD is an essential requirement.
This is a Science Foundation Ireland and RCSI funded, 3-year appointment within the Department of Physiology and Medical Physics in association with the Centre for the Study of Neurological Disorders (CSND) and the National Biophotonics and Imaging Platform of the RCSI Research institute.
