Tenure-track Assistant Professor

 

The Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research together with the Department of Biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, Massachusetts) invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the Assistant Professor level.

The Koch Institute is an NCI-designated Cancer Center, featuring a broad spectrum of cancer relevant research ranging from discovery and mechanistic analysis through to applied science. We are interested in candidates who have a Ph.D. or M.D., or equivalent. This is an open search with regard to field of study and specific research focus, but we are particularly interested in candidates who are pursuing innovative approaches to fundamental problems in molecular, cellular, or organismal biology.

The successful candidate will be provided with lab and office space in the Koch Institute, a generous start-up package, and access to stateof-the-art core facilities and is expected to develop and lead a vibrant, independent research program. We seek colleagues who share our commitment to undergraduate and graduate education, and who will develop and teach courses, supervise graduate and undergraduate research, and mentor trainees at all levels. We are particularly interested in candidates who will help promote and provide diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are committed to providing our faculty with a supportive environment that emphasizes mentoring and is mindful of diverse backgrounds.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, summary of current and proposed research (≤5 pgs), statement on teaching philosophy (~1 pg), and a statement on mentoring, diversity, and outreach (~2 pgs) that describes the candidate’s experience in these areas and/or how they envision contributing to our ongoing efforts. Letters of recommendation should be sent separately from at least three individuals able to evaluate the candidate’s accomplishments and future potential. Application materials should be submitted to Academic Jobs Online link https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/22825.

Completed applications will begin to be considered on 10/24/2022.

MIT Biology has additional open positions. Candidates may apply to any or all openings, but must submit a separate application for each position.
