The Department of Neuroscience & Physiology at SUNY Upstate Medical University (Syracuse, NY) invites applications from scientists with a record of high quality, original research related to Addiction Neuroscience. This tenure-eligible appointment will include a generous startup package with support from the Empire Innovation Program (SUNY). Whereas all candidates carrying out addiction-related research will be considered, we are particularly interested in the study of addiction-relevant mechanisms at the genetic, molecular, cellular, circuitry and/or behavioral levels employing state-of-the-art approaches such as in vivo fluorescence imaging or electrophysiology, single-cell molecular profiling and/or opto- or chemo-genetic manipulations of neural circuitry. The successful candidate will join a thriving Neuroscience community of over 40 investigators with broad research expertise in cellular, molecular, genetics, electrophysiology and behavioral approaches and a focus on human disease. Areas of strength of our community include nervous system development, structure and function of the retina, epigenomics, neural circuit plasticity, age-related neurodegenerative diseases and neuropsychiatric disorders. Our research is supported by state-of-the-art imaging, genomics, proteomics, and computational facilities, and growing Biobank capabilities. In addition, our associated hospital has a large Addiction Medicine Program. This rich set of campus resources are complemented by our historically strong association with Binghamton University, the home of the Developmental Exposure to Alcohol Research Center - an NIAAA supported Specialized Alcohol Research Center.
