Yale Cancer Biology Institute, part of the Yale Comprehensive Cancer Center (YCC) at Yale University School of Medicine, invites applications from basic and physician scientists for Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor positions in the tenure track. Appointment at Yale is available in a number of departments, and rank will be commensurate with experience and accomplishments. Applicants must have an M.D. and/or Ph.D. or equivalent degree and have demonstrated excellence in research and education. The successful candidates will have experience in the field of cancer biology, with specific target areas being cancer metabolism/metabolomics, bioinformatics, cancer genetics and genomics, epigenetics, chemical biology, tumor microenvironment, and tumor immunology.
Responsibilities include establishing a vigorous and independently funded research program in cancer biology, supervising and mentoring students with diverse backgrounds, and contributing to the graduate and medical school educational missions. We seek individuals with strong records of independent creative accomplishments, who will interact productively with colleagues within the Yale Cancer Biology Institute, across the Yale West Campus, the Yale Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the University generally – taking advantage of unique opportunities to translate basic science from the Institute into clinical practice.
The Yale Cancer Biology Institute is one of 6 newly-formed multi-disciplinary research institutes on Yale’s burgeoning West Campus, which is self-contained but conveniently linked to Yale’s nearby New Haven campuses and the Yale Cancer Center. Additional West Campus assets include the Systems Biology, Chemical Biology, Nanobiology, and Microbial Sciences Institutes – as well as state-of-the-art core facilities in high throughput cell biology, imaging, small molecule discovery, genome analysis, electron microscopy, and other technologies. Linkage to these Institutes and technologies provides unique opportunities for interdisciplinary research in the Yale Cancer Biology Institute that is simultaneously poised for translation through close involvement with the YCC and Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven.
