Primary responsibilities include the development of a program of research leading to publications in refereed journals and procuring external grant support for this research.

QUALIFICATIONS

Minimum Qualifications
 *  Earned terminal academic doctorate or medical doctorate degree in an area of expertise related to physical therapy, rehabilitation sciences, applied or basic sciences, behavioral sciences, or neuroscience (specific research area within neuroscience is open and may include pre-clinical models or clinical approaches) from a regionally accredited college or university. The specific program of research is not as important as is the quality of the research program and the capacity to attract external grant support.
 *  Evidence of scholarship, including publications in peer-reviewed journal
 *  History of effective and successful grantsmanship
 *  Teaching experience in graduate programs
 *  Effective communication and interpersonal skills with diverse populations

 *  Candidate whose research would overlap with established and emerging research programs in Las Vegas investigating neurodegenerative disorders or the growing neuroscience community at UNLV would be a plus; however, all candidates with a strong neuroscience research background will be considered.
 *  Active research agenda and/or clinical expertise in pediatrics, cardiopulmonary care, neuroscience, genomics, regenerative medicine, obesity, geriatrics, epidemiology.
 *  Interest in application of a program of research to an applied discipline such as Physical Therapy. Thus, a translational application to the individual's program of research will be important.
