FACULTY POSITIONS IN IMMUNOLOGY AND IMMUNOTHERAPY
The Fox Chase Cancer Center invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at ALL levels (Assistant, Associate or Full Professor) in the Blood Cell Development and Function Program. While outstanding candidates working in all areas of immunology are invited to apply, we particularly solicit applications from candidates with interests in one or more of the following areas:
- Understanding and reversing age-related inflammation and decline in immune function
- innate-immune signaling in anti-tumor responses and therapy;
- immune-based treatment strategies for malignancies;
- non-coding RNAs and RNA modifications in normal and malignant immune cells
- systems/computational approaches to understanding normal and malignant immune cell behavior
Successful applicants will receive very generous start-up packages and join a highly interactive group of immunologists in the outstanding basic and translational science community at Fox Chase. Applicants should have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree, and a strong record of recent accomplishments as a post-doctoral fellow or creative and sustained productivity as an established faculty member. Appointment and rank will be determined by the applicant’s qualifications. We are especially interested in qualified candidates from diverse backgrounds and under-represented groups.
Fox Chase was among the nation’s first institutions to receive Comprehensive Cancer Center designation from the NCI in 1974, and its 119 research faculty bring in a total of $47 Million in research funding. The Center provides care for over 140,000 outpatient visits each year, supported by 290 clinical trials. Two particular highlights of the Center are the world-class core facilities, and a superb clinical trials pipeline that allows the rapid translation of basic science discoveries into the clinic.
The application should include a curriculum vitae, a brief (up to two-page) statement of research interests and future goals, and a list of three individuals providing letters of recommendation.
