Huntsman Cancer Institute ( HCI ) and the Department of Pathology at the University of Utah are seeking a productive, collaborative, and innovative faculty member to join our multidisciplinary team devoted to melanoma. We seek an exceptional investigator with expertise in tumor immunology whose research expertise complements our ongoing areas of excellence in melanoma genetics, pre-clinical models of melanoma in mouse (GEMMs and PDXs) and zebrafish, mechanisms and biomarkers of drug sensitivity/resistance, chemoprevention and clinical trials for melanoma as well as risk assessment and communication.

The successful candidate will be appointed as a full-time Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor of Pathology in the tenure track and as an Investigator at HCI . Qualified individuals must have a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD. For appointment at the Associate or Full Professor level, candidates must have an excellent record of basic, translational, or clinical research achievement in the area of melanoma, including peer-reviewed funding.
