Group leaders and senior group leaders
HHMI’s Janelia research campus is recruiting Group Leaders and Senior Group leaders for our new 15-year research area called 4D Cellular Physiology. Our goal will be to understand the function, structure, and modes of communication of cells in organs and tissues with an aim of expanding our understanding of cells and how they collectively give rise to the physiological functions of the body. With our founding mission of connecting biologists and tool builders and our strengths in microscopy, computation, and theory, we believe Janelia is uniquely positioned to overcome current barriers and bridge the classic fields of cell biology and physiology.
The Group Leader or Senior Group Leader position offers an unparalleled opportunity to focus your time, energy, and creativity on research on what you enjoy doing most—SCIENCE. Supported by internal funding and outstanding scientific and administrative staff, Group Leaders can work at the bench and analyze data alongside their lab members. They have time to think deeply about science and have the freedom to pursue difficult, long-term projects. Collaboration is highly encouraged. Interdisciplinary thinking, technology development, and tool building also permeate our scientific environment. Janelia’s labs are small, which allows Group Leaders to maintain a close connection to their science and enhances inter-lab interactions. Lab efforts are greatly enhanced by Janelia’s Support Teams, which are run by professional staff who provide a range of high-level research services rarely found in universities.
We welcome applications from talented postdocs and graduate students who are ready to start their own lab, scientists working in industry, and even individuals who have taken a hiatus from science. Our group leaders come from many disciplines, including biology, chemistry, computer science, physics, and engineering.
Applications must include:
- Vision, mentorship, collaboration and diversity statements
- Up to three publications of note
- Three letters of reference
Successful applicants will be expected to start their labs in 2022 or 2023.
We are committed to a culture of inclusion on campus and invite applications from individuals with diverse backgrounds. HHMI is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
