Description

New York University School of Medicine invites applications for the Freedman Professor of Medicine in the Division of Geriatric Medicine. The goal of this endowed professorship is to support an innovative, dynamic research scientist in the Division of Geriatric Medicine who is dedicated to translational research on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of dementias. The Freedman Professor will join a newly established Division of Geriatric Medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center and will be charged with establishing a strong research presence in the Division of Geriatric Medicine and the NYU Medical School.

This is a tremendous opportunity for an established or up-and-coming scientist who wants to work within a strong multi-disciplinary environment with basic and translational researchers in Alzheimer’s disease, neurodegenerative diseases, and vascular neuroscience. Additional relevant resources include a newly established Neurosciences Institute and renowned neuroimaging capabilities.

The position is tenure-eligible, and research resources will be organized based on candidate interests and experience.
