The Division of Brain Tumor Research within the Department of Developmental Neurobiology at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is recruiting for a JUNIOR FACULTY member. We seek an exceptional scientist to lead an innovative laboratory-based research program using cutting-edge approaches to elucidate mechanisms relevant to neural development and tumorigenesis. Areas of interest include mechanisms of neural cell fate specification and differentiation, connections between epigenetic regulation, neural development and cancer, signaling pathways driving disease pathogenesis in pediatric brain tumors, and developmental and cellular origins of brain tumors. Early career investigators are encouraged to apply. This search is also open for mid-career investigators with a record of independent research.
We offer competitive packages, including startup funds, equipment, laboratory space, personnel support and potential institutional support beyond start-up phase. A faculty position at the Assistant and Associate Member level may be considered. Applicants may hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree, have at least three years of relevant postgraduate experience with proven productivity.
Email a CV, a 2-3 page summary of research, and the names of three references to:
