As a top pediatric research medical center, CCHMC offers a unique environment enabling the integration of basic and clinical research aiming to address critical questions in pediatric digestive diseases; long-term investment in studies to advance our understanding of pathogenesis and treatment for the Inflammatory Bowel Diseases is a key component of these efforts. The interdisciplinary faculty with a focus on IBD are a highly collaborative group of researchers who strive to advance our understanding of IBD mechanisms through innovative research and collaborations with others, including members of the NIDDK-supported Digestive Health Center, and the Center for Stem Cell & Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM).
Qualified candidates must have a PhD, MD/PhD or equivalent degree in biomedical sciences. Candidates at the rank of Assistant Professor are expected to have completed postdoctoral training as evident by an outstanding record of publications and a research program with strong potential for obtaining extramural grant funding. Candidates at the rank of Associate Professor should have an established track record of excellence and sustained, extramurally-funded independent and collaborative research. All candidates should have strong communication skills and leadership in developing research programs, collaborations, and new initiatives to help lead the IBD program to international prominence. CCHMC is an exceptional place for growth and development of young investigators and provides very competitive resources. Faculty have access to state-of-the-art subsidized core facilities, intramural funding opportunities, high-quality graduate and MD/PhD programs, and training programs for postdoctoral and clinical fellows.
Interested candidates should send a statement of research goals and interests, along with their CV and contact information for three professional references, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
