Temple University School of Medicine has tenure track faculty positions in the Department of Neuroscience, a state-of-the-art multidisciplinary research and education basic science department. This is an opportunity to participate in a collaborative environment to perform comprehensive research toward understanding the mechanisms of disorders of the central nervous system in order to develop therapeutic strategies against relevant diseases and to provide an integrative graduate and postgraduate program to train first rate scientists in the field of neuroscience. Areas of research focus may include signal transduction, neural cell degeneration in diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, glial cell disorders including multiple sclerosis and brain tumors, vascular disorders and neuroimmunological disorders associated with viral infections including HIV-1 in AIDS and multiple sclerosis. Candidates must possess a Ph.D., M.D., D.V.M or equivalent degree and must have active NIH and/or other federal research funding. Candidates may visit the Department of Neuroscience at http://www.temple.edu/medicine/departments_centers/basic_science/neuroscience.htm. All applications must be made in hard copy.
Rank commensurate with experience. Temple University offers a competitive compensation benefits package, including pension plan. Send curriculum vitae to: Kamel Khalili, Ph.D., Laura H.

The 12th International Symposium on NeuroVirology and 2013 Conference on HIV in the Nervous System will be held on October 29 to November 2, 2013 in Washington D.C., USA. These meetings will involve more than 350 basic and clinical scientists and trainees working in the areas of neurology, neuropathology, neuropathogenesis, neurobiology, neuroimmunology, neurochemistry, and molecular virology. The overall goal of these concurrent events will be to provide investigators working in the field of neurovirology and related areas with leading edge information so that important gaps in knowledge can continue to be identified. Armed with this information, attendees of both events will work toward formulating questions and experimental directions that will enhance the development of new preventative and therapeutic strategies effective against neurologic diseases associated with prions, HIV, and other viral and non-viral pathogens.
