The successful candidate will have access to thriving multidisciplinary graduate programs through the Guarini School of Graduate and Advances Studies (e.g., Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology, Program in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences, and the Program in Experimental & Molecular Medicine). In addition to NCCC, faculty members in the BCB Department benefit from highly collaborative and collegial interactions across Dartmouth, inclusive of other departments at Geisel, the School of Arts & Sciences, and the Thayer School of Engineering. In addition, candidates may benefit from interactions with three current NIH Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBREs), Dartmouth’s supercomputing networks (e.g., Discovery); and Dartmouth’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute (SYNERGY). A generous start-up package as well as access to state-of-the-art research facilities will be provided. Successful candidates are expected to develop a robust research program and excel in graduate student teaching. Applicants should have a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree with relevant post-doctoral training and a track record of research productivity.

Application materials should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research accomplishments and goals that emphasizes the clinical cancer relevance of their research (up to 3 pages), and three letters of recommendation.
