All faculty are also members of the NCI-designated Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center. Shared facilities for advanced microscopy, cell sorting, image analysis, genomics, quantitative and functional proteomics are available. The SKCCC also has robust mechanisms in place to compete for internal funding for early stage projects and a formal mentoring program for junior faculty. Breast cancer researchers also benefit from rich interactions with scientists in clinical and preclinical departments of the School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins University.
The successful applicant must have a Ph.D., M.D., or M.D., Ph.D. or equivalent in an appropriate discipline and at least 3 years of postdoctoral experience.
