The University of Chicago's Ludwig Center for Metastasis Research (LCMR) in the Biological Sciences Division (BSD) invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions with a primary faculty appointment within one of several departments in the BSD, the Department of Chemistry in the Physical Sciences Division (PSD), or the Institute for Molecular Engineering (IME). Candidates will also be proposed for a secondary appointment in the University of Chicago Comprehensive Cancer Center (UCCCC)
(http://cancer.uchicago.edu). We seek investigators who will establish a cancer-focused research program and collaborate with  colleagues across the Biological and Physical Sciences Divisions, as well as the University of Chicago Medical Center and the Institute for Molecular Engineering. In line with strategic development of cancer research at the University of Chicago, we anticipate that such investigators would carry out research in areas such as tumor metabolism, tumor cell  migration/invasion/metastasis, functional cancer genetics, tumor microenvironment, amongst other cancer-relevant areas. Appointed faculty will have access to state-of-the-art core facilities and to outstanding graduate students affiliated with numerous degree-granting programs in the biological and physical sciences. Equally, applicants are expected to engage in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level.

Applicants must have a doctoral degree. Interested candidates must apply online at the University of Chicago's Academic Career Opportunities website: http://tinyurl.com/ybvrasw4.
For consideration, a curriculum vitae with bibliography, a short summary of research plans, and three letters of references should be uploaded (the system will generate an electronic link sent to referees). All letters must be received before an application can be considered complete and applicants are responsible for ensuring that their referees submit reference letters electronically through the
system. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
