Tenure Track Faculty Positions

Structural Biology Program


The Structural Biology Program at the Sloan Kettering Institute is seeking innovative investigators for tenure-track positions at the Assistant, Associate, and Member levels who wish to address fundamental problems in all areas of biology through application of biophysical and structural methods. Applicants should have a doctoral level degree and the potential to develop a strong independent research program or a proven record of research accomplishments, depending on the level of appointment.


Candidates will join faculty that are brought together by a common belief that deep mechanistic insights to biological processes can be gleaned by determining the architectures of biological molecules and their assemblies at near-atomic or atomic resolution by any method that is applicable. Current program members share deep roots in biochemistry and biophysics, and include particular strengths in nucleic acid transactions, nuclear processes, and membrane systems. New faculty members will join an interactive, interdisciplinary community of scientists, which offers an outstanding basic research environment within expanded state-of-the-art research facilities.


Faculty will be eligible to hold graduate school appointments in the Gerstner Sloan Kettering Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences of Cornell University, as well as the Tri-Institutional MD/PhD Training Program.


The Sloan Kettering Institute offers a highly interactive, supportive and exciting research environment with programs in Immunology, Cancer Biology & Genetics, Cell Biology, Molecular Pharmacology, Chemical Biology, Molecular Biology, Developmental Biology, Computational & Systems Biology and Structural Biology.


The deadline for applications is October 17, 2022. Interested candidates should visit https://facultysearch.ski.edu  to access the online faculty application. Please visit the site as soon as possible, as it contains important information on the required application materials, including deadlines for submission of letters of reference.


Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer committed to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of recruiting and employment. All qualified individuals are encouraged to apply.
