The University of Minnesota Medical School, in collaboration with the Masonic Cancer Center, a NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, has launched a medical discovery initiative in translational genomics of solid tumors to expand a team working to develop new technologies and models for understanding cancer heterogeneity. Our goal is to hire at least 3 faculty with complementary expertise in cancer genomics. Dynamic candidates in the following disciplines are encouraged to apply:
• Physician-scientists focusing on clinical applications of novel genomics tools • Bioinformatics scientists developing novel algorithms for advanced cancer genomics analysis • Basic/translational scientists with a focus on cancer in vivo modeling • Molecular pathologists developing CLIA laboratory tests for rapid translation to patient care
Successful candidates will be expected to develop a strong independent research program and collaborate with other translational genomics researchers to build a comprehensive program in solid tumors spanning basic science, translational genomics, and clinical trials.
The selected candidates will be appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track) in the Basic Science and/or Clinical Department within the Medical School that best matches their training, research focus, and clinical service responsibilities (where applicable). A competitive salary, excellent fringe benefits, and an intellectually exciting environment is offered.
An MD, PhD, MD/PhD or equivalent degree is required; and candidates holding an MD degree must be eligible for medical licensure in the State of Minnesota. Successful candidates will have a career interest in pre-clinical and translational research as demonstrated by a strong peer-reviewed publication record.
