St Jude Children’s Research Hospital has established an expansive and multicomponent new initiative in translational neuroscience, whose mission is to understand and treat catastrophic childhood neurological disease. This new initiative integrates basic and clinical neuroscience and includes partnerships with industry and foundations to achieve this goal. A key component of this enterprise is the Center for Pediatric Neurological Disease Research (CPNDR). The CPNDR is currently recruiting for FACULTY positions.
We seek an exceptional and creative scientist to lead an innovative laboratory-based research program using cutting-edge approaches to elucidate mechanisms and/or therapeutic strategies relevant to understanding and treating pediatric neurological disease. We are particularly interested in individuals using state of the art molecular neurobiology, imaging analysis or disease modelling focused on the pathogenesis of pediatric neurological disease. Early career investigators interested in contributing to a culture of excellence at St. Jude are particularly encouraged to apply, although we will consider mid-career or later investigators with a strong record of independent research and funding.
The research environment at St. Jude is exceptional. CPNDR investigators have access to state-of-the-art institutional shared resources managed by Ph.D. level scientists that include an integrated support structure for broad research endeavors including genomics, proteomics and computational biology, CRISPR-based genome manipulation, mouse transgenics, iPS disease modelling, cell sorting, live cell imaging, and advanced image processing and analysis, amongst a variety of other departmental and core-supported research opportunities. There are abundant opportunities for collaborative interactions with world-class basic science and clinical investigators.
We offer very competitive packages, including generous startup funds, equipment, laboratory space, personnel support and institutional support beyond the start-up phase.
St Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a private, not-for-profit institute that is internationally recognized for its commitment to performing cutting edge research and providing state of the art clinical services, with the goal to improve the outcome for children with catastrophic diseases.
