Open Rank Faculty Positions (tenure-track) - Department of Pathology
Case Western Reserve University
Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, OH, USA
The Department of Pathology at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is recruiting for two tenured/tenure track Assistant, Associate or Full Professor positions to expand its vibrant research program in neurodegenerative diseases, including in bioinformatics/clinical informatics related to these diseases. Candidates with an established research track record in neurodegenerative, prion or protein conformational disorders are preferred. We seek to build both laboratory research and bioinformatics/clinical informatics research (e.g. with our unique data set on nationwide prion disorders cases and extensive clinical research data sets on other neurodegenerative conditions); candidates who apply either approach, or both, will be considered. The candidate should be able to establish an externally-funded research program. The Department houses the CDC-funded National Prion Disease Pathology Surveillance Center, has an NIH T32 training grant in neurodegenerative diseases, and already has 11 faculty members engaged in neurodegenerative disease research, including prion disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, fronto-temporal dementia and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The scientific environment is further supported by a strong interdepartmental Neuroscience research community. The Pathology Department is ranked in the top 10 for NIH funding. CWRU is located in Cleveland Ohio, a central Midwestern hub for art, culture, and sports that boasts a low cost of living and outstanding schools.
Candidates at the Assistant Professor level should have a demonstrated record of success in multiple venues with substantial potential to obtain external funding. Candidates at the Associate or Full Professor level should have robust and active research programs supported by substantial external funding and scientific reputation of scope that is national or international, respectively.
Interested candidates should forward a cover letter with statement of research interests and goals, CV, and names of 3 referees in a single pdf file to firstname.lastname@example.org.

CWRU is committed to achieving excellence in teaching, research, and scholarship.
CWRU was established in 1967 by the federation of Western Reserve University and Case Institute of Technology, which trace their origins to 1826 and 1880, respectively.
The University's 128-acre campus is the heart of Cleveland's University Circle -- the region's cultural hub, home of more than 50 cultural, medical, educational, religious, and social service institutions. University students and faculty participate in joint programs of teaching and research with several of their University Circle neighbors, including the Cleveland Institute of Art, University Hospitals of Cleveland, the Cleveland Clinic, the Cleveland Institute of Music, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Play House, and the Cleveland Orchestra.
The academic programs of Case Western Reserve University are administered through its schools and colleges: -- the College of Arts and Sciences, Case School of Engineering , Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, School of Dentistry, School of Graduate Studies, School of Law, Weatherhead School of Management, School of Medicine, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing.
CWRU ranks 12th among the nation's private research universities in federal awards to support research and development. It received more than $200 million in 1998-99 from government, industry, and private sources for research and sponsored projects. These funds support approximately 2,000 research and training projects.
University faculty work through one of the nearly 100 designated research centers and laboratories, many of which are interdisciplinary in nature, in addition to traditional departmental facilities.
Research strengths of the University include biomedicine (including cancer, neurobiology, pulmonary functions, genetics, biomedical engineering); materials (ceramics and composites, polymers, diamond, designed surfaces); sensors (industrial and medical); and interdisciplinary studies (aging, management of non-profit organizations, international health, intelligent systems, regional economics, technology management, and urban poverty).
CWRU enrolls 9,600 students -- about a third in undergraduate programs, and the balance in graduate and professional programs. Approximately two-thirds of all students attend full-time. Students come to CWRU from 50 states, the District of Columbia, and nearly 100 countries. About 70 percent of freshmen are in the top 10 percent of their high school graduating classes; nearly 90 percent are in the top 20 percent.
