The Department of Immunology at Harvard Medical School invites applications for a tenure- track position at the rank of Assistant Professor. We seek candidates performing creative and exciting basic and/or translational research, in any area of Immunology or interfacing fields.
Our department’s faculty members have diverse backgrounds and interests in understanding basic mechanisms of immunity and their roles in health and disease. Areas of research include autoimmunity and tolerance, cancer immunology, microbial immunity, mucosal immunology, immunometabolism, neuroimmunology, and systems immunology. Our vibrant research environment is highly interactive and collaborative, and fosters the free exchange of ideas, know-how and innovation.

We are committed to the success of our faculty, and provide engaged mentoring and significant resources, including a highly competitive start-up package, substantial administrative and operational support, and cutting-edge facilities for experimental and computational biology.
We consider it a core mission to educate and facilitate the training of the next generation of immunologists with diverse backgrounds. The successful candidate will have opportunities to teach and mentor exceptional graduate and medical students, to become a member of the training faculty in the PhD Program in Immunology, and to participate in other topic-specific PhD programs within the Harvard Integrated Life Sciences (HILS) system.
