Tenure-Track Faculty Position

Open Rank, Including an Endowed Chair

Cellular, Molecular Auditory Neuroscience


The Pittsburgh Hearing Research Center and the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine seek to fill an open rank, full-time, tenure-track position in auditory neuroscience. Faculty rank (Assistant, Associate or Professor level) will be determined by and commensurate with qualifications and experience. An Endowed Chair is available to support a senior candidate with an extraordinary record of accomplishments.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD, MD/PhD or MD degree and will have research interests relevant to the auditory system. We are seeking exceptional scientists to establish vigorous independent research programs and promote synergy between basic and translational research. For this search, candidates performing research related to hearing restoration, including hair cell and auditory nerve regeneration or prevention of degeneration, at the cellular or molecular level are especially encouraged to apply. However, exceptional candidates with interests relevant to cellular, molecular or genetic mechanisms in normal or pathological auditory processing will also be considered. A very generous start-up package is available.

Please submit a current CV, a 2-page description of research interests and future directions, and three referee names with their email addresses. Review of applications will begin in mid-October 2017 and will continue until the position is filled.

Materials should be sent to:
