Cleveland Clinic’s Microbiome Center - Multiple Faculty Positions



The Cleveland Clinic is building a new Center focused on the microbiome, its involvement in human health, and its potential as a target for therapeutic interventions. We are seeking highly qualified investigators who use definitive approaches to understand the nature of the microbiome and its impact on host physiology and disease susceptibility. Basic, translational and clinical investigators who are leaders in the field of microbiome-related research are sought to help build this new center. In addition, highly promising early career investigators with microbiome-related research interests are encouraged to apply. Candidates are also sought with expertise in areas related to microbiology, including, but not limited to, microbe-microbe interactions, gut-organ interactions, microbial enzymology and biochemistry, bacteriophage therapy and gnotobiotics.

Individuals will receive faculty appointments at the appropriate level (Assistant, Associate, or Full) in the Department of Cellular & Molecular Medicine. New recruits will join a highly collaborative environment with outstanding opportunities for interactions with basic and translational investigators, as well as with clinicians from multiple specialties. Outstanding facilities, generous start-up funds, and ongoing operational support will be provided.

The Lerner Research Institute, with nearly 200 independent investigators in 10 departments and an annual budget of >$240 million, has a commitment to excellence in basic, translational and clinical research, with an emphasis on interactive, collaborative research. Faculty are members of the Molecular Medicine Graduate Training Program at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and may join other Programs, providing access to excellent Ph.D. students enrolled in well-developed training programs.

Candidates should submit a complete curriculum vitae and brief statement of research interests by email to: Mr. Michael Piccirillo, [email protected].
