Research Assistant Professor in Neuroscience, Binghamton University, New York

In 2014, Binghamton University began a Freshman Research Immersion (FRI) program, in which teams of research faculty design research courses and then work with a postdoctoral research assistant professor who guides freshmen and sophomores in innovative research. The undergraduates proceed through three courses (basic research methods in the freshman fall, beginning research project in freshman spring, and then follow-up research in sophomore fall), with about 30 students per cohort. More detail about the FRI program is available at our web site: http://www.binghamton.edu/freshman-research-immersion/which includes short video and quotes from students.

The Neuroscience research stream began with the faculty team of Chris Bishop, Terry Deak and Lisa Savage. And, as we had expected, our Neuroscience research stream has a group of very eager and talented freshmen learning neuroscience in the context of our research theme. Students in the FRI Neuroscience have already presented at the Annual Northeast Under/graduate Research Organization for Neuroscience (NEURON) (conference at Quinnipiac University, Hamden, CT) and as co-authors at the annual Society for Neuroscience. For this research stream, we hire a full time research assistant professor and expect that hires will be in this position for three years. Candidates must have a PhD before starting. This position is open to PhD’s with appropriate background in neuroscience.
The Research Assistant Professor shapes the research theme. For example, past FRI cohorts have employed rodent models to interrogate neurobiological mechanisms of disease under the guidance of the Research Assistant Professor conducting research in that area.
The position is formally advertised at BU’s Interview Exchange. Details at:
