Transformative Hiring in Neuroscience

On January 12, 2011, the provost announced an initiative to raise USC’s neuroscience programs to a level of undisputed academic excellence through the hiring of transformative faculty.  Because of the unique interdisciplinary nature of the field and its increased importance to human inquiry and understanding in the 21st Century, the provost has committed support and resources to the deans of each school and a faculty committee charged with leading the search.
