Harvard’s Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology (HSCRB) is currently recruiting a tenure-track professor to join its multi-disciplinary research and teaching mission. HSCRB faculty members’ research spans broad areas of science, including but not limited to: developmental biology; regeneration and aging; neurobiology; systems biology; development of novel technologies and therapeutics (e.g. -omics, gene editing, gene therapy); stem cell biology; and genetic and biochemical mechanisms of disease. HSCRB investigators employ systems ranging from axolotls to zebrafish to mice to human pluripotent cells and organoids. The department hosts three degree-granting programs: an AB in Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology, a PhD in Developmental and Regenerative Biology, and a joint MS/MBA in Biotechnology: Life Sciences with Harvard Business School.

Candidates with a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree, a strong track-record of research accomplishments, and an innovative research plan are invited to apply. Dedicated strong commitment to teaching and advising is desired. The successful candidate will be located on Harvard’s Cambridge campus and will benefit from state-of-the-art research facilities, strong institutional and departmental commitment to career development, and a vibrant, collaborative research enterprise that brings together fundamental biology and medical science to create unique scientific and educational opportunities. The appointee will teach and advise undergraduate and postgraduate students in multiple Harvard programs. We are committed to building a diverse core faculty and give full consideration to applicants from all backgrounds. We strongly welcome women and applicants from groups traditionally underrepresented in science to apply. Candidates are welcome to reach out directly to the contact email if they would like to discuss their candidacy prior to applying.
