The Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Utah is looking to hire a PhD Research Scientist for a tenure- or research-track appointment in peripheral nerve research.

Current research centers on non-healing nerve injuries. In collaboration with Mark Mahan, MD, the Research Scientist will lead laboratory staff, oversee and develop protocols for experiments, prepare manuscripts, etc. The goal of the position is to run an independent lab in close collaboration with a clinician-scientist. The lab currently has NIH, SBIR, and University funding.

Applicants must be exceptional individuals who want to work in an independent research environment and be involved in high-impact research projects with clinical translation. Much of the research focuses on clinical applicability, and it is likely that future grants will involve clinical trials and possible intellectual property.

A letter of interest, curriculum vitae, statement of educational and research goals, and contact information for 3 references should be directed to:

Mark A. Mahan, MD, FAANS and William T. Couldwell, MD, PhD
