UCSF Seeks Another Neuropathologist

Since his recent move to the University of California San Francisco, Dr. Arie Perry (pictured) is already looking to expand the neuropathology division. See below for a great opportunity for the right neuropathologist!

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA (USA). The Department of Pathology and the Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases (IND) at the University of California San Francisco is seeking an outstanding candidate for a full-time faculty member with research, clinical service and teaching responsibilities at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level.

The successful candidate will direct his/her own basic or translational research program and will become an integral member of the large multidisciplinary team at UCSF involved in both clinical and collaborative research activities related to neurodegenerative disorders. Additional resources are also available in the Memory and Aging Center at UCSF, the Gladstone Institute of Neurological Disease, the Program in Biological Sciences (PIBS) Neuroscience Graduate Program and the Biomedical Science (BMS) Graduate Program.
