Open Rank Faculty Positions (tenure-track) - Department of Pathology

The Department of Pathology at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is recruiting for two tenured/tenure track Assistant, Associate or Full Professor positions to expand its vibrant research program in neurodegenerative diseases, including in bioinformatics/clinical informatics related to these diseases. Candidates with an established research track record in neurodegenerative, prion or protein conformational disorders are preferred. We seek to build both laboratory research and bioinformatics/clinical informatics research (e.g. with our unique data set on nationwide prion disorders cases and extensive clinical research data sets on other neurodegenerative conditions); candidates who apply either approach, or both, will be considered. The candidate should be able to establish an externally-funded research program. The Department houses the CDC-funded National Prion Disease Pathology Surveillance Center, has an NIH T32 training grant in neurodegenerative diseases, and already has 11 faculty members engaged in neurodegenerative disease research, including prion disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, fronto-temporal dementia and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The scientific environment is further supported by a strong interdepartmental Neuroscience research community. The Pathology Department is ranked in the top 10 for NIH funding. CWRU is located in Cleveland Ohio, a central Midwestern hub for art, culture, and sports that boasts a low cost of living and outstanding schools.  

Candidates at the Assistant Professor level should have a demonstrated record of success in multiple venues with substantial potential to obtain external funding.  Candidates at the Associate or Full Professor level should have robust and active research programs supported by substantial external funding and scientific reputation of scope that is national or international, respectively.

Interested candidates should forward a cover letter with statement of research interests and goals, CV, and names of 3 referees in a single pdf file to
