Department/Area: Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology
Harvard's Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology (HSCRB; http://hscrb.harvard.edu) is currently recruiting a tenure-track professor to join its multi-disciplinary research and teaching mission. HSCRB faculty members' research spans broad areas of science, including but not limited to: developmental biology; regeneration and aging; neurobiology; systems biology; development of novel technologies and therapeutics (e.g. -omics, gene editing, gene therapy); stem cell biology; and genetic and biochemical mechanisms of disease. HSCRB investigators employ systems ranging from axolotls to zebrafish to mice to human pluripotent cells and organoids. The department hosts three degree-granting programs: an AB in Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology, a PhD in Developmental and Regenerative Biology, and a joint MS/MBA in Biotechnology: Life Sciences with Harvard Business School.
Candidates with a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree, a strong track-record of research accomplishments, and an innovative research plan are invited to apply. Dedicated strong commitment to teaching and advising is desired. The successful candidate will be located on Harvard's Cambridge campus and will benefit from state-of-the-art research facilities, strong institutional and departmental commitment to career development, and a vibrant, collaborative research enterprise that brings together fundamental biology and medical science to create unique scientific and educational opportunities. The appointee will teach and advise undergraduate and postgraduate students in multiple Harvard programs. We are committed to building a diverse core faculty and give full consideration to applicants from all backgrounds. We strongly welcome women and applicants from groups traditionally underrepresented in science to apply. Candidates are welcome to reach out directly to the email listed below if they would like to discuss their candidacy prior to applying. The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter.

1. Cover letter. Approximately 1 page.
2. Curriculum Vitae
3. Research statement. 3 pages, single spaced. Figures are included in the page limit but references can be on a separate page. The research statement should outline the candidate's long-term vision for research in their future laboratory with an emphasis on bold projects that have potential for substantial impact. The research statement should also summarize the candidate's prior work as evidence for their potential to execute their vision.
4. Teaching/advising statement. 1-2 pages, single spaced. The teaching statement should outline prior teaching experience, if any, and how the candidate envisions that they will approach undergraduate teaching. New faculty in HSCRB often design new courses related to their expertise with the assistance of the education team. Existing courses in the department are viewable at my.harvard.edu (search: SCRB and look at 100 and 200-level classes).
5. Statement describing efforts to encourage diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past, current, and anticipated future contributions in these areas. 1-2 pages, single spaced.
6. Candidates for a tenure-track position are also required to submit names and contact information of 3-5 referees, who will be asked by a system-generated email to upload a letter of recommendation once the candidate's application has been submitted. Three letters of recommendation are required, and the application is considered complete only when at least three letters have been received. For candidates for a tenure-track position, at least one letter must come from someone who has not served as the candidate's undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral advisor.
