The Director of Research at NeuroTexas Institute is responsible for leading the development of a world-class neuroscience research program with a focus on translational neuroscience and computational methods. The Director of Research will conduct basic research both independently and by building collaborative projects with local and national scientists. The Director of Research will be responsible for identifying potential sources of external funding and financial support for both science research and for academic/medical program development. The Director of Research will work with the Chief Administrative Officer, Departments of Neuroscience and Rehabilitation and the Executive Director of the NTI Research Foundation to develop short- and long-term strategies for the Center for Computational Neuroscience and the NeuroTexas Institute Research Foundation (hereafter the "Centers").
