Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research and Department of Biology
The Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research (https://ki.mit.edu), together with the Department of Biology (https://biology.mit.edu/) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, Massachusetts) invites applications for a junior faculty appointment. Appointments are expected to be in the MIT Department of Biology, but other MIT departments will be considered, if appropriate. Applicants are expected to develop and lead a vibrant, independent research program and to share our commitment to undergraduate and graduate education by teaching courses and supervising graduate and undergraduate research. We are particularly interested in candidates who will help promote and provide diversity.
The Koch Institute is an NCI-designated Cancer Center, featuring a broad spectrum of cancer relevant research ranging from basic mechanistics through to applied science. This is an open search with regard to field of study and specific research focus, but we particularly encourage applications related to basic biological mechanisms as well as computational and machine learning approaches to cancer research. The successful candidate will have laboratory space in the Koch Institute. Applicants should include curriculum vitae, brief summaries of past accomplishments, a description of future research plans, and a statement on commitment to teaching, mentoring, diversity, and outreach that describes the candidate’s experience in these areas and/or how they envision contributing to our ongoing efforts (https://biology.mit.edu/about/diversity/). Letters of recommendation should be sent separately from three individuals able to evaluate the candidate’s accomplishments and future potential for both research and teaching. To apply, submit application materials to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/ jobs/16771.
Completed applications will be reviewed starting October 1, 2020. Note that there are two other searches to fill faculty positions in the Biology Department (http://biology.mit.edu). Applicants may apply to any or all of the searches. MIT is an Equal Opportunity/ Affirmative Action employer
