The Desai Sethi Urology Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine is seeking to recruit outstanding scientists for faculty positions at the assistant through full professor levels. These positions present exceptional opportunities to partner with an outstanding clinical urology program in a new institute dedicated to rapidly translating basic discoveries to the clinic. The overarching goal of the institute’s research program is to define the underlying biochemical and clinical behavior of genitourinary cancers, in order to identify new strategies that will ultimately lead to durable clinical benefits.
Applicants should have a primary interest in the fundamental mechanisms of human biology, biochemistry, metabolism, or genetics, with some relevance to genitourinary cancers. Applicants must have a Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D., or M.D., an exceptional track record of accomplishment and funding, and be able to function well as part of a multidisciplinary team. Excellence in scholarship should be clearly evident accompanied by the strength in research, education, and service.
The successful applicant will be supported by generous start-up funds and joint appointments in the Desai Sethi Urology Institute and the NCI-designated Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Comprehensive Cancer Center is constructing a state-of-the-art cancer research facility, to open in 2024, that will integrate basic science research and clinical care in a patient-centered environment.
