Faculty and Staff Positions

The UVA Brain Institute aims to fulfill its mission of fueling discovery by recruiting neuroscience faculty through a cluster hiring process in areas including autism, TBI, neurodegeneration, epilepsy, and visual/sensory sciences.

A cluster search seeks multiple faculty members from across disciplines who are working in a particular interdisciplinary field with the potential for broader social impact. Cluster hires have the potential to expand the University's diversity and to reduce discipline- and institution- generated barriers to research, and these searches are conducted collaboratively by several schools or departments.
