Kansas State University (K-State) seeks a new Director of the Johnson Cancer Research Center (JCRC), with the position to begin on January 4, 2019.

The JCRC is a distributed center administratively housed in the College of Arts & Sciences. It’s mission to further the understanding of and development of treatments for cancers by funding basic cancer research and supporting higher education, training, and public outreach.  The JCRC has more than $12 million in endowments, and currently funds faculty research, equipment purchases, undergraduate and graduate cancer research awards, scholarships for undergraduates pursuing careers in the biomedical sciences, and graduate student and faculty travel opportunities, as well as extensive outreach engagement to the public.

The director position is a full-time, twelve-month appointment with expectations for leading the JCRC, forming and/or leading teams of faculty members to obtain program project awards, conducting highly effective fundraising, and continuing an individual extramurally-funded cancer-related research program. The individual selected will have the credentials consistent with academic appointment at the level of full professor in one of the departments of the College of Arts & Sciences. The successful candidate should have a professional track record of proven broad leadership in funded cancer-related research, in assisting investigators in grant-writing for cancer research, both public and private, as well as for assisting faculty and/or staff in intellectual property development.
