HHMI’s Janelia Research Campus is recruiting for:

  • Group Leaders and Senior Group Leaders for 4D Cellular Physiology
  • Group Leaders and Senior Group Leaders for Computation and Theory
  • Group Leaders for Mechanistic Cognitive Neuroscience

The Group Leader or Senior Group Leader position offers an unparalleled opportunity to focus your time, energy, and creativity on research on what you enjoy doing most—SCIENCE. Supported by internal funding and outstanding scientific and administrative staff, Group Leaders can work at the bench and analyze data alongside their lab members. They have time to think deeply about science and have the freedom to pursue difficult, long-term projects. Collaboration is highly encouraged. Interdisciplinary thinking, technology development, and tool building also permeate our scientific environment. Janelia’s labs are small, which allows Group Leaders to maintain a close connection to their science and enhances inter-lab interactions. Lab efforts are greatly enhanced by Janelia’s Support Teams, which are run by professional staff who provide a range of high-level research services rarely found in universities.

For our Group Leader role, we welcome applications from talented postdocs and graduate students who are ready to start their own lab, scientists working in industry, and even individuals who have taken a hiatus from science. For our Senior Group Leader role, we welcome applications from individuals who have at least 10 years of experience running a research lab.

Applications must include:

  • Vision, mentorship, collaboration and diversity statements
  • Up to three publications of note
  • Three letters of reference

Successful applicants will be expected to start their labs in 2023 or 2024.

We are committed to a culture of inclusion on campus and invite applications from individuals with diverse backgrounds. HHMI is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
