Ludwig Princeton Scholar
Princeton University is pleased to announce a search for Ludwig Princeton Scholars, a new program aimed at attracting talented early-career scientists (0-2 years from PhD, MD, or clinical training). The program centers on cancer metabolism, broadly defined to include technology development, computation, biological studies, drug development, and clinical trials relevant to diet, metabolism, cancer, cell growth, metastasis, autophagy, microbiome, and/or the immune system. Scholars will be housed at the new Ludwig Princeton Cancer Institute on Princeton University's campus, or in collaborating labs at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey. Appropriate backgrounds include a Ph.D. in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, physics or an M.D. Appointment will be as Associate Research Scholar, renewable for up to five years, with a competitive salary and research support. Scholars will be given a substantial degree of independence, with mentorship from at least 2 faculty members, one of whom must be a full member of the Ludwig Princeton Cancer Institute (currently, these are Yibin Kang, Josh Rabinowitz, and Eileen White). Scholars may have the opportunity to perform a modest amount of teaching, according to a plan they may develop in conjunction with their mentors. While teaching, a Scholar may hold a secondary appointment as a Lecturer in an appropriate department, pending sufficient course enrollments and the approval of the Dean of the Faculty. Submission of all application materials is highly encouraged by September 1, 2021. Scholars will be appointed on a rolling basis. Please feel free to contact Panina Zaurov ([email protected]) with any inquiries about the Ludwig Princeton Scholars Program. To apply online, please visit https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/20701 and submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae which includes a list of publications, a brief statement (1-2 pages) of research interests and goals, and contact information for three references. These positions are subject to the University's background check policy.
