The division has a particular interest in research addressing neurodegenerative diseases, sleep, population health, surgical care, and oncology. A depth and breadth of scientific approaches are welcomed. The candidate should have excellent potential for obtaining NIH, NSF and/or not-for-profit funding and, as well, support from industry and philanthropy that is scientifically, educationally and mission appropriate.
