Faculty Position in Cancer Immunology- Mayo Clinic Arizona

The Mayo Clinic Department of Immunology in Scottsdale, Arizona is seeking an exceptional early- to mid- career Scientist with an interest in the study of cancer immunology and/or immunotherapy.

The successful candidate will study molecular and cellular mechanisms of the immune response to cancer and lead an independent and nationally/internationally-recognized research program. This person will hold academic rank at Mayo Clinic commensurate with experience and qualifications. 

The ideal candidate will be a laboratory-based investigator whose research program and interests innovatively impact the field of cancer immunotherapy. Specific areas of interest include innate and adaptive immunity to cancer, and cancer immunotherapy (checkpoint blockade, vaccine or T cell transfer). Faculty will be expected to work collaboratively with colleagues and may align with one or more institutional centers (e.g., biomedical discovery, cancer, individualized medicine, regenerative medicine).

Candidates holding a doctoral degree (PhD, MD/PhD, or MD) at all levels of academic rank will be considered for this faculty position. Junior investigators should have a strong publication record and evidence of successful competition for external funding is preferred. Senior candidates must have a strong publication record and history of NIH- or equivalent extramural funding. The selected individual is expected to develop and/ or maintain a nationally and internationally recognized extramurally funded research program. Several collaborative and translational opportunities exist, such as participation in NCI Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPORE) grants, integrating all three Mayo sites (AZ, MN, and FL) and are strongly encouraged and supported. Mayo Clinic offers a highly competitive compensation package with sustained intramural salary support, outstanding laboratory facilities, capital equipment funding, technical and computational resources, and exceptional benefits. 

MAYO CLINIC is ranked number one overall nation-wide as well as in more specialties than any other hospital in the nation for 2018-2019 by the U.S. News and World Report. We are an integrated, multidisciplinary academic medical center with an NCI-sponsored Comprehensive Cancer Center, and programs in medical education and research that span across three group practice sites. We support a vibrant research enterprise, with programs in basic, translational, clinical, and population sciences. In 2018, the institution received nearly $450 million in extramural research awards, supplemented with over $304 million of institutional support.
