The Institute for Behavioral Genetics (http://www.colorado.edu/ibg) at the University of Colorado Boulder, invites applications for a tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor with a joint appointment in an appropriate academic department. The anticipated start date is August 2013. The Institute seeks to strengthen its next generation of research on the genetics of behavior. In particular, we are seeking a scholar who utilizes rodent models and state of the art tools to investigate the genetics of behavior. Priority will be placed on applicants whose research interests will integrate and complement ongoing areas of research including, but are not restricted to, pharmacogenetics, addiction, psychiatric disorders, cognition, development or aging. Appointee will be expected to develop a productive, extramurally funded research program and participate in the teaching missions of both the Institute and their academic departments.
Minimum requirements are a PhD, MD, or equivalent terminal degree. Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, separate statements of research and teaching interests, sample research papers, and three letters of recommendation at www.jobsatcu.com (job posting number 816858). Questions about the position should be addressed to Dr. Jerry Stitzel (firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-735-6173).
Application review will begin November 1, 2012, and continue until the positions are filled. The University of Colorado is an Equal Opportunities Employer committed to building a diverse workforce. We encourage applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.

The Institute for Behavioral Genetics, University of Colorado Boulder, invites applications for three tenure track Assistant Professorships, each with a joint appointment in an appropriate academic department, to be appointed between August 2012 and August 2013. The Institute seeks to strengthen its next generation of research on the genetics of behavior and its interface with rodent model and human brain science. Successful candidates may include, but are not limited to, individuals whose research on the genetics of behavior utilizes one or more of: statistical genetics; behavioral genomics; computational biology; molecular biology; neurophysiology; brain imaging; or computational neuroscience. Appointees will participate in the research and teaching missions of both the Institute and their academic departments.
Minimum requirements are a PhD, MD, or equivalent terminal degree. Applicants should submit a cv, a statement of research and teaching interests, 3 to 5 sample research papers, and 3 letters of recommendation at www.jobsatcu.com (job #816857).
Application review will begin May 1, 2012, and continue until the positions are filled.
The Institute has three federally funded training programs. One training grant, funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, supports one post doctoral fellow and five predoctoral students. A second training grant, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, supports one postdoctoral fellow and four predoctoral students. A third training grant, funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, supports two postdoctoral fellows and four predoctoral students. Individuals interested in applying for a postdoctoral fellowship should initially contact a Faculty Fellow with whom they would wish to work.
Postdoctoral fellowships are available for research in the areas of alcohol and drug abuse, utilizing pharmacogenetic and behavior genetic strategies. Laboratories contributing to this multidisciplinary postdoctoral training program range from those conducting human epidemiological and genetic studies to those undertaking molecular biological, genomic and proteomic studies of animals. Units of the University of Colorado involved in the program are the Departments of Pharmacology, Psychiatry, and Medicine in the School of Medicine at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, CO; the School of Pharmacy at the Health Sciences Center in Denver, CO, and the Department of Psychology and the Institute for Behavioral Genetics in Boulder, CO. This training program is now in its 31st year and supports 8 postdoctoral fellows. Preference will be given to candidates early in their postdoctoral training. Initial inquiries should be sent to the Training Grant Administrator, Donna Moye (303-724-3627).
