Tenured Professor in Developmental Biology

Harvard University

Faculty of Arts and Sciences

Department of Molecular & Cellular Biology


The Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard University (www.mcb.harvard.edu) seeks to appoint a tenured professor in developmental biology, with an emphasis on studying fundamental biological questions in either conventional or unconventional model systems. We are particularly excited about candidates who employ modern quantitative methods such as, but not limited to, imaging, genomics, and computation.  The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2020 or as soon as feasible. The professor will teach and advise at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  The Department offers an interactive research community with broad interests, state of the art animal facilities and core facilities for imaging, proteomics, genomics and bioinformatics, and close association with wider Harvard science initiatives such as the Quantitative Biology Initiative, the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, the Center for Brain Science, the Broad Institute, and the Center for Nanoscale Systems.

A doctorate degree is required. Applications should include: curriculum vitae, a research vision statement describing future plans, a teaching statement describing teaching approach and philosophy, and a statement describing efforts to encourage diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past, current, and anticipated future contributions in these areas.

Candidates are encouraged to apply by September 1, 2019. Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled. We anticipate interviewing short-listed candidates beginning in the first weeks of October.

We are deeply committed to improving the diversity of Harvard’s faculty and scientific community. We strongly encourage applications from women and other underrepresented groups.
