The Center for Microbiome and Human Health and the Center for Immunotherapy and Precision Immuno-Oncology (CITI) are collaborating to form a joint faculty search for a highly qualified clinical investigator with a focus and knowledge of gut microbiome and how it links to cancer progression and immune-oncology therapeutic responses. Qualified investigators will use innovative approaches to understand the nature of the microbiome and its impact on host physiology and disease susceptibility.
The principal goal of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Microbiome and Human Health (http://cmhh.ccf.org) is to interpret the role of microbiota in human health and disease and apply this knowledge to develop microbiome-focused therapeutic strategies.
The Center for Immunotherapy and Precision Immuno-Oncology (CITI) is a department that focuses on research in immuno-oncology, infectious disease immunity, autoimmunity, and development of new immunotherapeutics for a broad array of human diseases.
Individuals will receive faculty appointments at the appropriate level (Assistant, Associate, or Full) in CITI. Practicing physicians can be co-appointed in other clinical institutes, as appropriate. The successful candidate will engage in a highly collaborative environment with outstanding opportunities for interactions with basic and translational investigators, as well as with clinicians from multiple specialties. Outstanding facilities, generous start-up funds, and ongoing operational support will be provided.
The Lerner Research Institute, with nearly 190 independent investigators in 8 departments and an annual budget of > $300 million, has a commitment to excellence in basic, translational and clinical research, with an emphasis on interactive, collaborative research. Faculty typically also become members of our Molecular Medicine Graduate Training Program and other programs at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland State University, and Kent State University, providing access to excellent Ph.D. students.
Candidates should submit a complete curriculum vitae and brief statement of research interests by email to: Rita Montemarano MONTEMR@ccf.org
