San Diego Biomedical Research Institute (SDBRI) invites applications for Assistant, Associate and Full Professor positions in the fields of diabetes, cancer, neurological disorders, and vaccine research.

SDBRI is a non-profit biomedical research institute focused on finding new ways to predict and prevent disease to accelerate medical advances that maintain health and improve quality of life. The structure and environment at SDBRI is designed to foster collaboration across disciplines and specialties and to encourage innovation. The approaches that individual research groups use to study the disease areas in which they are experts include biochemistry, immunology, molecular biology and genomics. Scientists with different expertise also work together to identify possible overlap in biological processes that lead to more than one disease and combine their diverse scientific approaches to maximize the impact of their research for the benefit of human health.

Brainstorming sessions between investigators in the different disease areas are held regularly to identify important questions, write joint funding proposals, and coordinate the relevant scientific research.

Located in the heart of San Diego’s science park, SDBRI is a part of one of the largest and most concentrated centers of science, engineering, and medicine in the U.S. - a setting that fosters cooperative partnerships, intellectual exchange, and shared resources.

Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent doctoral-level degree; an established record of independent research accomplishment; and current sponsored projects. Preference will be given to those in the fields of cancer, diabetes, neurological disorders and vaccine discovery. However, applicants in all other fields will be considered.

SDBRI is committed to a policy of equal employment opportunity in regard to recruiting, hiring, training and promoting the most qualified individuals, without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and expression, marital status, age, registered domestic partner status, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, age, disability, protected veteran status, medical condition including genetic characteristics, or any other protected status as designed by federal, state, or local law.
