Faculty Position in Aging and the Immune System-

Mayo Clinic in Arizona

Heal the sick, Advance the science, Share the knowledge.

The successful candidate will be an immunologist with expertise in senescent remodeling of the immune system with aging and will lead an independent and nationally and internationally-recognized research program. This person will hold academic rank at Mayo Clinic commensurate with experience and qualifications. The ideal candidate will target the profound changes that occur in the immune system with age and how such changes can be linked with the progression of a variety of chronic illnesses and increased risk of acute infections, using cutting edge technologies. Specific areas of interest may include effects of age on micro- environmental niches supporting adaptive immune cell development, cell intrinsic physiologic changes in long-lived adaptive immune cells, age-related extrinsic stresses impacting immune cells and the aging of the innate immune system. Faculty will be expected to work collaboratively with colleagues and to be an active participant in the enterprise-wide Department of Immunology and the Robert and Arlene Kogod Center on Aging. The individual may also align with other Mayo Clinic centers such as cancer, transplant, cardiovascular diseases, biomedical discovery, individualized medicine and regenerative medicine.

QUALIFICATIONS: Credentials of a successful candidate will include a doctoral degree (PhD, MD/PhD, MD or equivalent) in a biomedical science field and rigorous postdoctoral training. Junior investigators should have a strong publication record; evidence of successful competition for external funding is preferred. Mid-career investigators must have a strong publication record and history of NIH- or equivalent extramural funding.
