Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey invites applications for an open rank, tenure track faculty position with a research focus in tumor immunology including cancer immunotherapy, immunometabolism, CAR-T therapy, checkpoint blockade, T cell biology, tumor antigens, tumor immune evasion, and viral and non-viral gene transfer and gene editing. The successful candidate will join a team of researchers and clinicians of the newly established Duncan and Nancy MacMillan Cancer Immunology and Metabolism Center of Excellence and Tumor Immunology Program. The Program is built on our existing strengths in cancer metabolism and immunological research in partnership with Princeton University, and its clinical translation through our robust CAR-T therapy program with onsite GMP manufacturing and first-in-human clinical trials. The research program is based on an iterative bench to bedside strategy of investigator-initiated research in which laboratory discovery drives clinical trials, and clinical trials drive laboratory research. This is an exciting opportunity to join a developing world class cancer immunology and immunotherapy program and a cellular therapy center of excellence. Attractive laboratory packages exist for qualified candidates.

Rutgers Cancer Institute is an NCI-designated, comprehensive and consortium cancer center that includes faculty members from across Rutgers University (including Rutgers Robert Wood Medical School, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences) and Princeton University. The Hematologic Malignancies Program at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital is one of the first programs and the only one at an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the State of New Jersey to offer CAR T-cell therapy treatment. Having one of the most comprehensive hematologic malignancies programs in the state, which includes stem cell transplantation, Rutgers Cancer Institute is most appropriate to offer this highly specialized treatment. We are a leader in basic, clinical, prevention, and public health science, offering world-class quality cancer care providing the most advanced medicines and treatment options for patients in our health system network across the state.  We are easily accessible to Manhattan, Newark Airport, and Philadelphia. Visit our website at www.cinj.org.

New faculty are expected to establish an innovative, independent and collaborative research program addressing important, fundamental questions in the area of tumor immunology. Interdisciplinary and translational approaches are encouraged that establish collaborations with CINJ consortium faculty. Senior investigators will be expected to have a sustained record of peer reviewed funding and publications in cancer immunology. All candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D., or equivalent graduate degree, and outstanding academic credentials. Rank will be commensurate with experience.
