CMRC Children's Memorial Research Center
Faculty Positions


The Human Molecular Genetics Program at CMRC is undergoing a phase of expansion with excellent new laboratory space and state of the art equipment in place.  Under the leadership of the new Program Director, Professor Ann Harris, we are seeking to recruit new faculty interested in any areas of Human Genetics.  The aims of the program are to develop translational genetic medicine, particularly in areas directly related to pediatric disease.  Ph.D and MD/Ph.D candidates with post-doctoral experience and potential to attract nationally competitive research funds are encouraged to apply.  Start up packages will be generous and successful applicants will be eligible for tenure-track faculty positions in the Department of Pediatrics, Feinberg Medical School, Northwestern University.  Candidates with research interests in the areas of chromatin structure and the regulation of gene expression are particularly encouraged to apply, though research in all areas of human genetic disease will be considered.

For further details of the program see (childrensmrc.org/human_molecular_genetics).

In order to receive full consideration, applications should be received by October 15, 2006.  Northwestern University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.  Hiring is contingent upon ability to work in the U.S.  Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.  Please send applications/letters of interest including full curriculum vitae, an outline of research interests, the names and contact details of 3 referees and .pdf files of 3 recent publications to Chris Pomeroy, Program Assistant, Human Molecular Genetics Program, CMRC, 2430 N Halsted Street (211), Chicago, IL 60614-4314.
