Group Leader - Biological Mechanisms Underlying Neuropsychiatric Disorders

NIN - Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Are you interested in developing an innovative research group through a combination of core and extramural funding to study the biological mechanisms underlying neuropsychiatric disorders? Would you enjoy working in close collaboration with other research groups in an exceptionally collegial and synergistic institute? Do you look forward to focusing your time on research without teaching obligations? Then this job may be for you.

What you will be doing?

We are looking for a candidate who will apply cutting-edge molecular or computational neuroscience tools to unravel biological mechanisms responsible for dysfunctions encountered in psychiatric disorders. You will work together with fellow research groups and clinical researchers on understanding psychiatric symptoms from molecules to brain circuitry. A background in molecular or computational psychiatry is preferred, but researchers with different expertise may apply as well if they have a strong case for collaborative utilization of the unique facilities and expertise present at the NIN to understand mechanisms of psychiatric disorders.

You would have the following responsibilities:

  • Coordinate and conduct fundamental research relevant to psychiatric disorders;
  • Acquire external research funding;
  • Mentor PhD students and postdocs and manage other personnel related processes of your group;
  • Make an inspiring and complementary contribution to the NIN mission.

Who are we looking for?

You preferably have obtained your PhD degree no longer than 10 years ago. We will deduct a 1.5 year period for each child when comparing productivity across candidates to account for the family investment involved in maternity/paternity. You have an excellent and demonstrable track record in scientific research, and publications in relevant journals. Experience in acquiring external funding for research. Excellent communication skills. Ability to work and troubleshoot independently and collaboratively.
