The Comprehensive Cancer Center at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is recruiting multiple laboratory-based faculty at the FULL, ASSOCIATE and ASSISTANT levels as we undergo a major expansion of our basic and translational research programs.

We are searching for creative and collaborative scientists whose research programs focus on:

  1. Diverse areas of basic science with cancer relevance;
  2. Translational, laboratory-based investigation related to pediatric brain tumors and solid tumors; and
  3. Translational, laboratory-based investigation related to hematological malignancies as part of a newly formed Center for Excellence in Leukemia Studies.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a premier research institution dedicated to pediatric cancer and other catastrophic diseases of childhood. We are the first and only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. We offer a highly interactive environment with remarkable opportunities to perform groundbreaking independent and collaborative research while receiving long-term institutional support.

We value diversity among our faculty, are committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and strongly encourage applications from underrepresented groups and women.
