The Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School (HMS) is seeking outstanding candidates for faculty positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor levels.
As a pioneer in light-based biomedical research, the Wellman Center has created many impactful technologies used in medicine today and has trained numerous leaders in the field. With 13 core faculty members and over 150 staff, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, the Wellman Center conducts cutting-edge research in areas that include optical diagnostics and imaging, novel light sources, advanced microscopy, light-activated tissue repair and regeneration, immunology, genetics, and phototherapy. These research programs are supported by a combination of federal grants, private foundations, industry, and philanthropy. The center also receives substantial royalties from licensed intellectual property that support the operation of the Center and provide other benefits to Wellman faculty members.
To continue this tradition of excellence, we seek exceptionally innovative individuals who will push the boundaries of biomedical research. Candidates from any background who aspire to making an impact in the field of biomedicine with an interest in building strong ties to photomedicine are encouraged to apply. Potential broad topics of interest include but are not limited to novel diagnostics and therapeutics, sensing and imaging, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, robotics, optogenetics, photoacoustics, microfluidics, organogenesis, precision medicine, computational biology, and systems biology. Successful candidates will be expected to promote and foster multidisciplinary research within Wellman and the larger MGH, MIT, and Harvard research communities. A competitive start-up package will be provided that includes custom-designed research space and access to state-of-the-art core facilities.
Applications submitted before January 31, 2018 will be given full consideration and will be reviewed immediately upon receipt of a complete application.
