CCSB Fellows

The CCSB Fellows are junior and independent researchers who receive funds from the ICBP Center for Systems Biology of Diversity in Cancer to carry out and independent research program in collaboration with CBio affiliated faculty. The initial appointment is for two years, with the possibility of renewal for another year.

We are presently seeking candidates for CCSB fellowships.

Current CCSB fellows

Announcement for 2012 CCSB fellow

The Center for Cancer Systems Biology (CCSB) at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) is seeking applications for an Independent Research Fellow. The CCSB Fellowship provides the opportunity to develop an independent research program in the broad field of Cancer Systems Biology. You will be able to work in collaboration with members of MSKCC in novel computational or experimental research programs. This fellowship is distinct from a normal postdoctoral position as fellows are expected to develop independent research, while receiving excellent support and attractive research conditions, including:

  • Unparalleled intellectual freedom to study cancer systems biology
  • Opportunity to collaborate with leading cancer and systems biology researchers
  • Competitive salary and benefits
  • Discretionary research and collaboration funds

In the spirit of supporting innovative research, we encourage people with interdisciplinary backgrounds and exemplary academic records to apply. Candidates should be in the early stages of their scientific career, ideally within two years of completion of their PhD. The fellowship is initially for a two-year period, but can be extended to a third year based on performance. It is anticipated that the fellow will be ready to transition into a faculty position at any institution toward the end of this fellowship.

About the CCSB at MSKCC
As part of the NCI’s Integrative Cancer Biology Program, the CCSB at MSKCC focuses on the broad topic of systems biology of diversity in cancer. Current research at our Center investigates the nature and consequences of molecular and phenotypic diversity in cancer from the following perspectives:

  • Diversity as a distribution of cellular phenotypes on a uniform genetic background
  • Diversity of functional roles between the tumor and microenvironment
  • Diversity of cancer subtypes, both discrete and continuous

Join our CCSB at MSKCC to pursue cutting-edge basic research, apply computational methods to solve biological problems, and bridge experimental and clinical research. Participate in an innovative expansion of research programs at one of the best clinical-scientific institutions in the world. Work in Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center's new Zuckerman Research Center, on Manhattan's Upper East Side, in close proximity and with close links to Rockefeller University and the Cornell Weill Medical College. Develop a solid foundation for success.

Excellent employment terms are available. The Search Committee will begin reviewing applications immediately. The deadline for the first round of application is February 28, 2012. The search will continue until the position is filled. Applications should include a curriculum vitae with a full list of publications, a brief statement of research interests and goals (maximum 3 pages), and three letters of recommendation. All to be sent electronically to bemis[AT]cbio.mskcc.org
