Faculty Opportunity in Chemical Biology

Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) is an independent non-profit biomedical research institute that blends world-class fundamental research with drug discovery to address unmet clinical needs in the areas of cancer, neuroscience, immunity, and metabolic disorders. The Institute invests in talent, technology, and partnerships to accelerate the translation of laboratory discoveries that will have the greatest impact on patients. Recognized for its world-class NCI-designated Cancer Center and the Conrad Prebys Center for Chemical Genomics, SBP employs more than 1,100 scientists and staff in La Jolla (San Diego), California, and Lake Nona (Orlando), Florida.

We are seeking junior, mid-career, and senior faculty to engage in cutting-edge research programs in Chemical Biology at SBP. Candidates will have demonstrated expertise in one or more of the following areas of interest: chemical biology, medicinal chemistry, small molecule probe/drug design, pharmacology, structural biology, assay development, and screening technologies. SBP is a highly collaborative environment and the successful candidate will have opportunities to collaborate in multiple areas, including but not limited to, proteostasis, epigenetics, cancer metabolism, immunology/immune-oncology, infectious diseases, ER stress, autophagy, stem cells, neurodegeneration and aging. Sanford Burnham Prebys provides state-of-the-art laboratories and shared resources supported by a collaborative work environment.

The faculty positions require a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. and an outstanding record of publications and research accomplishments relevant to the focus areas.  Chosen candidates are expected to establish well-supported, rigorous and competitive research programs based on fundamental mechanisms that can address unmet clinical needs.
