MIT Institute for Medical Engineering and Science – Ragon Institute Search Open Position:
The Ragon Institute, together with the Institute for Medical Engineering and Science (IMES) at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), in Cambridge, MA is seeking outstanding scientists for tenured faculty positions to start on July 1, 2021 or on a mutually agreed date thereafter. The Ragon Institute has its own recently renovated building located near the heart of MIT. The Ragon Institute was officially established in February 2009 as a joint institute involving faculty from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), MIT, and Harvard University. IMES was established in 2012 as the center for Human Science on the MIT campus, and integrates engineering, science, and medicine to advance and accelerate innovation in health through research and education.
This search is for candidate(s) to be hired into a tenured faculty position at MIT. Applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. (or equivalent degree) in engineering, science, or a closely related field, have a track record of exceptional achievement in basic or translational research, and an outstanding independent research program that supports the two institutes’ shared goal of harnessing the immune system to prevent and cure human diseases.
Several opportunities exist at the interface of IMES and the Ragon Institute, such as addressing challenges pertinent to infectious diseases and auto-immune disorders. Broad areas of mutual interest include understanding the physical and biological mechanisms underlying how the immune system functions, applied microbiology and virology, and efforts that leverage this knowledge and engineering design to develop therapies, diagnostics, and vaccines that can be translated to the clinic. More specific topics of interest include: 1. systems biology, machine learning, physics-based modeling, and approaches directed toward understanding innate and adaptive immunity with the goal of preventing and curing disease; 2. the development of new vaccination concepts and adjuvants; 3. the design of new delivery approaches for vaccines and therapies; and, 4. diagnostic approaches that enable rapid and reliable detection of pathogens and monitoring of biomarkers of immunity. The applicant should present a strong research plan which can synergize with ongoing basic, applied and translational research efforts at the Ragon Institute and in IMES.
MIT faculty duties include teaching at the undergraduate and/or graduate levels, research, and supervision of student research. The successful candidate will be provided with a generous start-up package to complement outstanding laboratory and office space, as well as access to state-of-the-art core facilities including advanced flow cytometry, microscopy, BSL-3 facilities, and an extensive clinical specimen repository. The successful candidate will be expected to build and maintain an internationally recognized, extramurally funded research program complemented by substantial support from Institute funds. The candidate should possess the ability to work collaboratively with other scientists and engineers, in addition to the scholarly qualities required to mentor doctoral students from graduate programs at MIT.
Interested candidates should submit application materials electronically https://school-of-engineering-faculty-search.mit.edu/mit-ragon. Each application must include: a curriculum vitae; the names and addresses of three or more references; a strategic statement of research interests;
and a statement of teaching interests. In addition, candidates should provide a statement
regarding their views on diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past and current
contributions as well as their vision and plans for the future in these areas. It is the responsibility
of the candidate to arrange for reference letters to be uploaded at https://faculty-searches.mit.edu/letters/.
