Job Summary/Basic Function
The Cell Cycle and Cancer Biology Research Program (https://omrf.org/programs/cell-cycle-cancer-biology-research-program/) at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (www.omrf.org) invites candidates to apply for an investigator position at the Assistant Member level (Assistant Professor equivalent). Current investigators in CCCB use diverse models and approaches to study chromosome biology during cell cycle progression and development. All investigators at OMRF have access to a number of excellent core facilities, including an Imaging Core, state-of-the-art animal facilities, and modern sequencing platforms. The successful candidate will receive a generous, multi-year start-up package with significant, sustained salary and research support.

Candidates must have evidence of postdoctoral training with a strong record of research accomplishment, and will be expected to establish a research program that focuses on questions in chromosome biology, cell division, and/or genome stability. Quality and research potential of the applicant, rather than the precise research model or topic, are most important. Investigators who use genomic and/or computational approaches to address problems in cell cycle and chromosome biology are of particular interest. Current members of CCCB are highly interactive, and strong emphasis will be placed on anticipated ability of the newly recruited member to further catalyze collaborative science.

OMRF (www.omrf.org) is an independent, not-for-profit biomedical research institute adjacent to the campus of the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) in Oklahoma City. OMRF investigators enjoy close scientific interactions with OUHSC faculty and participate in OUHSC graduate programs. Oklahoma City offers a dynamic and burgeoning midtown area nearby, and a very reasonable cost of living. For more information about CCCB and this job opening, go to https://omrf.org/cccb-faculty/.

Minimum Qualifications
Ph.D., M.D., or Ph.D./M.D. and a minimum of 2 years relevant post-doctoral research experience or training.
