The Center for Stem Cell Biology (CSCB) and the Developmental Biology Program are seeking innovative individuals with a strong record of accomplishments in stem cell biology for junior tenure-track faculty positions at the Sloan Kettering Institute. The CSCB was established to further interactions among researchers interested in stem cell biology at Memorial Sloan Kettering, to offer cutting-edge stem cell resources, and to recruit leading stem cell faculty. The CSCB is interested in research in all aspects of stem cell biology, including human stem cell and organoid models, tissue stem cells and regeneration, pluripotency and reprogramming and the application of human pluripotent stem cells in disease modeling and regenerative medicine. Candidates with a strong interest in applying developmental approaches are particularly encouraged to apply.
Applicants should have a PhD and/or MD degree and the skills necessary to develop an independent, cutting-edge research program. Successful candidates will be appointed in the Developmental Biology Program at the Sloan Kettering Institute and will become members of the CSCB. Faculty members are 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, advanced imaging and flow cytometry and single cell genomics. MSK and the Sloan Kettering Institute offer 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 October 15, 2020. 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.
