FACULTY POSITION IN TUMOR IMMUNOLOGY
Vanderbilt Center for Immunobiology, Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center, & Vanderbilt Division of Hematology & Oncology, Department of Medicine
Vanderbilt University Medical Center
The Vanderbilt Center for Immunobiology, Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center, and Division of Hematology & Oncology in the Department of Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and School of Medicine invite applications for a tenure-track faculty scientist or physician-scientist at the assistant or associate professor level in the field of tumor immunology. Areas of interest include but are not limited to immune cell processes in the tumor microenvironment, interactions of tumor cells with endothelial and stromal cells that influence inflammation, processes that regulate immune cell metabolism and signaling in response to tumor antigens and in the tumor environment, how tumor heterogeneity influences anti-tumor responses, and mechanisms and development of cancer immunotherapies. Qualified candidates will have a Ph.D., M.D., M.D./Ph.D., or equivalent degree and appropriate postdoctoral experience with peer-reviewed publications that demonstrate outstanding scholarly work. Successful candidates will be expected to establish and maintain an energetic, independent and well-funded research program and participate in the teaching of graduate and medical students, as well as postdoctoral and clinical research fellow trainees.
With an active and diverse faculty of basic and physician-scientists, the Vanderbilt Center for Immunobiology, Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center, and the Vanderbilt Hematology & Oncology Division provide a collegial and interactive environment with a range of scholarly interests and research facilities. The Vanderbilt University Medical Center is located on the Vanderbilt University campus and home to internationally recognized programs in cancer biology, pharmacology, drug discovery, proteomics, structural biology, imaging science, bioinformatics, inflammation, and vaccines. The School consistently ranks in the Top 20 US Medical Schools and provides outstanding opportunities for scholarship and cross-disciplinary collaborations.
The Vanderbilt University is a member of the Southeastern Conference and the campus is a National Arboretum located in the heart of Nashville, the capital of Tennessee. Known as “Music City USA”, Nashville is home to the Nashville Symphony, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, professional sports teams, and numerous outdoors activities; it is a great place to live and raise a family while doing ground-breaking research and teaching outstanding students at all levels.
Applications will be evaluated starting on November 1. Applicants should send a curriculum vita, a statement of current and future research interests, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the Tumor Immunology Search Committee c/o: ashley.d.riley@Vanderbilt.Edu.
