Primary Research Areas

  1. Stem cell biology
  2. Epigenetics
  3. Microcell-mediated chromosome transfer (MMCT)

We encourage talented, enthusiastic students and fellows to apply, regardless of previous research experience. Positions are currently available, as posted below.

Graduate Students

We invite applications from graduate students interested in mechanistic studies of pluripotent stem cells, epigenetic change, and transplantation models of mouse and human. Eligible programs include the Gerstner Sloan Kettering Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the Weill Cornell Graduate School, and related Tri-Institutional graduate programs.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Postdoctoral positions are currently available. Research areas include 1) reprogramming of somatic cells to pluripotent stem cells, 2) epigenetic modification during reprogramming/tissue differentiation/cancer progression, and 3) histocompatibility of differentiated tissues. Candidates should have a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required. Most importantly, candidates should be creative, independent, and dedicated to building a career in these fields. Research experience in pluripotent stem cells, epigenetics, biochemistry, and mouse genetics is preferred, but not required. One position will be designated to the individual who has prior research experience on microcell-mediated chromosome transfer (MMCT). Salary will be commensurate with experience and will adhere to current NIH guidelines. The Sloan Kettering Institute offers subsidized housing and a competitive salary for postdocs.

Application Requirements

Please send a CV (no more than three pages) and a description of prior research experience and accomplishments, future research interests and career goals, and expected availability date (no more than one page) in a single PDF file to Kitai Kim, PhD, at kimk@mskcc.org.
