Center for Stem Cell and Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM)
Center for Stem Cell and Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM) Faculty
The new Center for Stem Cell & Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM) at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) is launching a major new initiative to recruit outstanding tenure-track or tenured faculty at the Assistant to Associate Professor level.
CuSTOM (www.cincinnatichildrens.org/custom ) is a multi-disciplinary center of excellence integrating developmental and stem cell biologists, clinicians, bioengineers and entrepreneurs with the common goal of accelerating discovery and facilitating bench-to-bedside translation of organoid technology and regenerative medicine. Faculty in CuSTOM benefit from the unique environment and resources here to accelerate their studies of human development, disease and regenerative medicine using pluripotent stem cell and organoid platforms.
CCHMC is a leader in organoid biology and one of the top ranked pediatric research centers in the world, providing a unique environment for basic and translational research. Among pediatric institutions CCHMC is the third-highest ranking recipient of research grants from the National Institutes of Health. CCHMC continues to make major investments in research supporting discovery with 1.4 million square feet of research space and subsidized state-of-the-art core facilities including a human pluripotent stem cell facility, CRISPR genome editing, high-throughput DNA analysis, biomedical informatics, a Nikon Center of Excellence imaging core and much more.
We invite applications from innovative and collaborative investigators focused on basic or translational research in human development and/or disease using stem cells or organoid models. A focus on neurobiology, pulmonary, vascular or cardiac biology would synergize with existing institutional strength. Successful candidates must hold the PhD, MD, or MD/PhD degrees, and will have a vibrant research program with an outstanding publication record.
Applicants should submit their curriculum vitae, two to three page research statement focused on future plans, and contact information for three people who will provide letters of recommendation to CuSTOM@cchmc.org. Applications must be submitted by November 16th, 2018.
The Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and the University of Cincinnati are Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employers. Qualified women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
