The Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor - UCLA Medical Center (LA BioMed) invites applications from highly accomplished individuals with an MD, PhD, or equivalent degree, at an early career stage with at least three years of postdoctoral training or, as an established mid-career level investigator.  Areas of interest include Cancer, Genomics, Health Services and Outcomes, Infection and Immunity, Metabolism and Endocrinology, Neurotherapeutics, and Respiratory Physiology and Medicine.  Applicants whose research encompasses translational research (from basic science to community health) and those bringing novel approaches or cutting-edge technologies to study basic or translational aspects of chronic diseases (including health outcomes and clinical trials) are encouraged to apply.

LA BioMed is an independent, non-profit research institute with over 110 investigators, 600 scientists, trainees and technicians as well as administrative staff.  In the 67 years since its founding, LA BioMed has made seminal contributions to Science and Medicine, including the modern serum cholesterol test, the creation and implementation of a training system for paramedics, and the development of enzyme replacement therapy for lysosomal storage diseases.  LA BioMed intellectual property has enabled the formation of 10 spin-off companies over the last 9 years.  Its ecosystem for innovation occupies 11.5 acres on the Harbor-UCLA campus in Torrance, CA.  The newly completed research tower adds 80,000 square feet of state-of-the-art laboratory, office and public space to our scientific infrastructure.

LA BioMed is committed to being at the forefront of translational biomedical research.  The current recruitment initiative will enhance its multidisciplinary, trans-sectorial expertise by adding talented investigators who will synergize with its existing vibrant and interactive research groups in Cancer, Genomics, Health Services and Outcomes, Infection and Immunity, Metabolism and Endocrinology, Neurotherapeutics, and Respiratory Physiology and Medicine.

The successful applicant will receive a generous and competitive start-up package, office and laboratory space, and access to state of the art facilities including animal housing, genomics and bioinformatics, immunophenotyping and cell sorting, microscopy and molecular/cellular imaging, biostatistics and informatics, and molecular pathology.  Institutional support also includes the potential for seed funding, access to two IRBs, an IACUC, and grant writing assistance as well as a pro-active Business Development office that facilitates the commercialization of discoveries.  A newly-established bioscience incubator now exists on campus and an industrial park for biotechnology is being developed.  LA BioMed is also a partner in the UCLA Clinical and Translational Science Institute.

Successful applicants will be proposed for in-residence academic appointments at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA at the appropriate level.  More information about the institute is available at https://labiomed.org

Applications consist of the following items, which should be communicated electronically to  Dr. J. Madrenas, Chief Scientific Officer, c/o Brandi Bass at brandi.bass@labiomed.org :

  1. A cover letter and Curriculum Vitae (combined into a single .pdf document);
  2. Statement of Future Research Interests (2 pages maximum);
  3. The names and contact information of three individuals who would provide letters of reference.

Review of applications will start on October 15, 2019, and will continue until the position is filled.
