Faculty Recruitment in Cellular Bioengineering at Center for Disease Neurogenomics (CDN) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in NYC.
We are inviting applications for tenure-track faculty positions (Assistant and Associate Professor level) forscientists who are working to develop human cell-based models of neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. We are recruiting biomedical engineers, bioengineers, developmental biologists and molecular and cellular biologists who apply state-of-the-art approaches to cellular engineering and perform advanced screening and disease modeling for therapeutic discovery. We seek scientists with expertise in cellular screening and imaging methods, microfluidic technologies to permit engineering of neural
interactions in a defined circuitry, and/or 3D printing of matrix proteins and cells to establish vasculature within three-dimensional neural organoids. The development of next generation human disease models will allow CDN members to resolve the interactions between genetic variants, cell types and molecular functions in an enhanced disease-relevant context.
The Center for Disease Neurogenomics provides a hub for neurogenomics and disease biology geared towards developing and enhancing precision medicine across neuropsychiatric disorders. The candidates will join an outstanding team of scientists with world class expertise in a broad range of disciplines, including genetics and genomics, neuroscience and clinical psychiatry. CDN promotes collaboration, inclusion, and cross-disciplinary interactions between basic wet lab and dry lab scientists and clinicians, and provides strong support to junior scientists.
The Center for Disease Neurogenomics is part of the Mount Sinai Health Care System, which is one of largest hospital systems in the United States, and the Icahn School of Medicine, which houses over 5000 faculty in outstanding departments in psychiatry, neuroscience, genetics, immunology, stem cell biology, and experimental therapeutics. The highly integrated structure of Mount Sinai’s departments, institutes and clinical divisions provide a unique environment for scientific and medical collaborations that foster an ideal atmosphere for innovations aimed at addressing 21st century biomedical challenges. Mount Sinai is ranked as one of the nation’s top biomedical institutions in research, patient care, and education, and over the last 10 years has
become a leader in biomedical data science. In addition to the CDN, faculty recruits will be appointed in the Departments of Psychiatry, Genetics and Genomic Sciences, Cell, Developmental & Regenerative Biology, and Neuroscience, which are among the top 5 ranked departments in the US, based on NIH funding.
Applicants should hold a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. and are expected to develop independent research programs. Candidates for the Associate Professor rank must have a distinguished record of published research, demonstrating significant impact on the profession, and success at securing extramural funding to support research programs. We offer highly competitive recruitment packages, strong institutional commitments to faculty support, comprehensive benefits, relocation services, and a rewarding work and life environment. The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is located in the heart of Manhattan, one block from Central Park.
Compensation range from 165K to 200K (not including bonuses / incentive compensation or benefits).
