The Department of Genetics and Complex Diseases (GCD) at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health invites applications for the level of assistant or associate professor. The shared interests of GCD faculty include investigations of metabolic alterations underlying the most important, non-communicable diseases affecting human health, including metabolic diseases, cancer, and neurodegeneration.
The Department of Genetics and Complex Diseases offers a supportive and vibrant scientific community that values building a diverse faculty body. The Department Chair is committed to junior faculty success and will work closely with the hired candidate to develop a mentorship plan. Additionally, the Offices of Faculty Affairs, Research Strategy and Development, and Research Administration, together with mentors and academic departments, work in partnership to provide an individualized research development support system for each new tenure-track faculty member. Through this coordinated effort, faculty establish strong relationships with key administrative departments, receive support and guidance to navigate the funding landscape, and garner the tools and resources needed to succeed as members of the Harvard Chan School research community.
