CENTER FOR MICROBIOME AND HUMAN HEALTH
MULTIPLE FACULTY POSITIONS
The overarching goal of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Microbiome and Human Health (http://cmhh.ccf.org) is to elucidate the role of microbiota in human health and disease, and then exploit this knowledge to develop microbiome-focused therapeutic strategies. We are seeking highly qualified investigators who use definitive approaches to understand the nature of the microbiome and its impact on host physiology and disease susceptibility. Basic, translational, and clinical investigators who are leaders in the field of microbiome-related research are sought to contribute to this mission. In addition, highly promising early career investigators with microbiome-related research interests are encouraged to apply. Candidates are sought with expertise in areas related to microbiology, including, but not limited to, microbe-microbe interactions, microbe-host interactions, microbial ecology, microbial enzymology and biochemistry, bacteriophage therapy, and the role of microbiota in cancer biology and response to immunotherapy.
Individuals will receive faculty appointments at the appropriate level (Assistant, Associate, or Full) in the appropriate basic science or clinical Departments and Institutes. New recruits will join a highly collaborative environment with outstanding opportunities for interactions with basic and translational investigators, as well as with clinicians from multiple specialties. Outstanding facilities, generous start-up funds, and ongoing operational support will be provided.
The Lerner Research Institute, with nearly 175 independent investigators in 8 departments and an annual budget of > $260 million, has a commitment to excellence in basic, translational and clinical research, with an emphasis on interactive, collaborative research. Faculty typically also become members of the Molecular Medicine Graduate Training Program and other programs at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, providing access to excellent Ph.D. students.
Candidates should submit a complete curriculum vitae and brief statement of research interests by email to: Ms. Paxton Hatcher 216-445-1937, firstname.lastname@example.org
