The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is seeking multiple tenured/tenure-track Assistant/Associate/Full Professors to direct cutting-edge basic, translational, clinical, population, or data science research programs.  

As the nation’s leading cancer center, MD Anderson is home to many of the top cancer researchers in diverse fields. The institution has established infrastructure and programs that fuel innovation and breakthroughs in support of its mission to eliminate cancer. Researchers at MD Anderson are empowered to conduct cross-disciplinary, collaborative science to accelerate discovery, including implementing speculative approaches that might yield radical innovation. The institution invested more than $900 million in research last year, and it has made significant investments for the future, including a new state-of-the-art research facility in the TMC3 life-sciences complex.

Successful candidates are expected to establish an independent, extramurally funded research program that complements existing research strengths at MD Anderson, in the themes listed below. Research should emphasize mechanistic studies and novel computational methods with relevance to multiple cancer types. Competitive applications will describe a clear line of sight for their program to broaden multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborations intended to improve cancer care and outcomes.

Interested basic and translational science applicants should hold a PhD, MD or MD/PhD and have at least three years of postdoctoral training with an exceptional publication record. For applications in research domains such as data science and modeling, data visualization, or dissemination and implementation science, relevant and impactful experience will be prioritized over traditional length-of-training requirements.

MD Anderson provides generous research laboratory space and startup packages, and eligible candidates will be encouraged to seek additional recruitment awards from the Cancer Research and Prevention Institute of Texas (CPRIT). Faculty can participate in and recruit from the outstanding training and mentoring programs for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. MD Anderson actively strives to create and maintain a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment at every level.

Interested applicants should send their CV, a brief (maximum of three pages) research plan with identification of keywords from the themes below, three full-length research papers, and contact information of individuals who will provide recommendation letters. Inclusion of up to three letters of recommendation and/or a cover letter to facilitate the initial evaluation process are recommended but not required.
