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 junior or senior faculty appointment. Appointments are expected to be in the MIT Department of Biology, but other departments in the MIT School of Science or School of Engineering will be considered, if appropriate. Applicants are expected to develop and lead a vibrant, independent research program and to share our commitment to undergraduate and graduate education by teaching courses and supervising graduate and undergraduate research. We are particularly interested in candidates who will help promote and provide diversity.
The Koch Institute is an NCI-designated Cancer Center, featuring research across a wide range of areas in basic cancer research and cancer-oriented engineering. This is an open search with regard to field of study and specific research focus, but we encourage applications related to basic biological mechanisms relevant to cancer as well as computational and machine learning approaches to cancer research. The successful candidate will have laboratory space in the Koch Institute.
Applicants should include curriculum vitae, brief summaries of past accomplishments and a description of future research plans. Letters of recommendation should be sent separately from three individuals able to evaluate the candidate’s accomplishments and future potential for both research and teaching.
Candidates must hold a PhD in the biological, chemical, physical, mathematical, or computational sciences, or in an engineering field; or an MD; or equivalent terminal degree.
To apply, submit application materials online.
Completed applications will be reviewed starting October 1, 2019.
Note that there are two other searches to fill faculty positions in the Biology Department. Applicants may apply to any or all of the searches.
