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 a strong record of research accomplishments in stem cell biology for tenure-track positions at all faculty levels. The CSCB was established to further the interaction of researchers interested in stem cell biology at Memorial Sloan Kettering, 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 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 and the skills necessary to develop an independent, cutting-edge program in stem cell research. Successful candidates will be appointed in the Developmental Biology Program and will become members of the CSCB. Successful candidates are also eligible to hold additional appointments at the Gerstner Sloan Kettering Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences, as well as the Tri-Institutional MD/PhD Training Program.

Successful candidates will have access to outstanding resources, including 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. MSK offers a unique and exciting multidisciplinary research environment. CSCB faculty 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 1, 2016. Interested candidates should visit https://facultysearch.ski.edu to access the online faculty application. The site contains important information on the required application materials as well as deadlines for submission of letters of reference. Candidates responding to this position should select “Center for Stem Cell Biology” to submit their application.
