Faculty Position in the Center for Stem Cell Biology and in the Developmental Biology Program

The Center for Stem Cell Biology (CSCB) and the Developmental Biology Program are seeking innovative individuals who have strong records of research accomplishments in stem cell biology for tenure-track positions at the Assistant Member level (equivalent to Assistant Professor). The CSCB was established to further the interaction of researchers with active stem cell research programs at the Center, to enhance and build novel stem cell related resources and to recruit leading-edge stem cell faculty. The CSCB is interested in research in any aspect of stem cell biology, including the study of stem cells in model organisms, tissue stem cells and the biology and applications of human embryonic stem cells or induced pluripotent stem cells. Candidates with a strong interest in applying developmental approaches to studying stem cell biology are particularly encouraged to apply.

Applicants should have a PhD and/or MD degree, a productive postdoctoral experience, dedication to important problems in stem cell biology, and the potential to develop a strong independent program in stem cell research. The successful candidate will be appointed in the Developmental Biology Program and will become a member of the CSCB. Successful candidates are also eligible to hold additional appointments at the Gerstner Sloan Kettering Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences, as well as the Tri-Institutional MD/PhD Training Program.

The successful applicant will have access to outstanding resources including expanded state-of- the-art facilities for human pluripotent stem cells, high-throughput chemical and genetic screening, mouse genetics, genomics, flow cytometry, advanced imaging and cancer biology. Memorial Sloan Kettering offers a unique and exciting multidisciplinary research environment. Faculty in the CSCB participate in the Tri-institutional stem cell initiative (with Weill Cornell and Rockefeller University) that links stem cell researchers across neighboring institutions.

The deadline for applications is November 15, 2014. Interested candidates should visit http://facultysearch.ski.edu to access the on-line faculty application. The site contains important information on the required application materials as well as deadlines for submission of letters of reference.

Inquiries may be sent to Dr. Lorenz Studer, Director of the CSCB, at studerl@mskcc.org, or to Dr. Kathryn Anderson, Chair of the Developmental Biology Program, at k-anderson@ski.mskcc.org.

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer committed to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of recruiting and employment. All qualified individuals are encouraged to apply.
