The new Center for Stem Cell & Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM) at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) is launching a major new initiative to recruit Assistant Professor tenure-track faculty.
CuSTOM (www.cincinnatichildrens.org/custom) is a multi-disciplinary center of excellence, integrating developmental and stem cell biologists, clinicians, bioengineers and entrepreneurs with the common goal of accelerating discovery and facilitating bench-to-bedside translation of stem cell technology and regenerative medicine. Faculty in CuSTOM benefit from the unique environment and resources to study human development, disease and regenerative medicine using pluripotent stem cell and organoid platforms.
CCHMC is a leader in organoid biology and one of the top ranked pediatric research centers in the world, providing a unique environment for basic and translational research. CCHMC continues to make major investments with 1.4 million square feet of research space and subsidized state-of-the-art core facilities, including a human pluripotent stem cell facility, CRISPR genome editing, high-throughput single cell genomics, biomedical informatics, a Nikon Center of Excellence Imaging Core and much more.
We invite applications from innovative collaborative investigators with PhD, MD, or MD/PhD degrees focusing on basic or translational research in human development or disease using stem cells or organoid models. Investigators using single cell analysis, live imaging or quantitative computational approaches will benefit from ongoing institutional investment in these areas.
Applicants should submit their curriculum vitae, 2-3-page research plan, and contact information for three people who will provide letters of recommendation to CuSTOM@cchmc.org. Applications must be submitted by December 17, 2021.
