Research Associate and Project Staff

Careers

Current Research Associate and Project Staff opportunities are listed below.

Research Associate candidates will be expected to conduct research under the mentorship of a principal investigator in a predominantly independent manner. They will be expected to pursue testing of hypotheses by developing experimental designs, managing and processing data and interpreting and preparing results for publication in peer-reviewed journals. Research Associates will work closely with the principal investigator and will be expected to communicate effectively both in writing and in oral presentations. Qualified candidates will have successfully completed all requirements for the degree of doctorate in philosophy (PhD) or doctor in medicine (MD) in relevant scientific programs.

Project Staff candidates will have substantial experience at the Postdoctoral or Research Associate level and have established a respectable record of publication. They will work in collaboration with the principal investigator but work independently within the scientific framework of the principal investigator's laboratory. Project Staff may seek grant funding from extramural sources in support of their research projects with the consent of the principal investigator and department chair. This is a junior-level faculty position.

Please complete your application as directed and send to the investigator listed. We look forward to hearing from you!
