Executive Director, Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute for Neuroscience

The Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute for Neuroscience at Caltech is seeking an Executive Director who will use her/his administrative experience in a higher education or scientific research organization to implement the vision and strategic plan of the Institute Director and oversee Chen Institute activities. 

The Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute for Neuroscience at Caltech, founded in 2016 with the generous support of philanthropists Tianqiao Chen and Chrissy Luo, brings together a cross-disciplinary team of scientists and engineers to investigate one of today's greatest challenges and opportunities - understanding the brain. The Chen Institute at Caltech is a key component of a new neuroscience initiative that is geared toward deepening our understanding of the brain's structure and how the brain works at its most basic level, as well as why and how it fails as a result of disease or through the aging process. Ultimately, this work aims to yield such transformational advances as new therapies, the reversal of diseases of aging, and an improvement in the human condition.

The Chen Institute at Caltech draws upon Caltech's strengths across a broad range of disciplines, catalyzing interactions within a diverse community of researchers from neuroscientists and biologists to social scientists, chemists, physicists, computer scientists, and engineers

The Executive Director will work with the Director, its five connected center directors, and faculty across campus in affiliated divisions as well as Caltech development, administration, and communications offices to oversee the entire Institute operating structure and assist in identifying new opportunities for supporting research and education in neuroscience and communicating Institute scientific advances to the public.
