Faculty Positions

The Rockefeller University seeks exceptional, creative scientists to join its faculty. We invite applications from outstanding candidates for tenure-track positions, and also welcome applications from tenured scientists at an early stage of their career. We are committed to recruiting and supporting a diverse scientific community and seek to create a faculty of individuals from different backgrounds with a wide range of perspectives and experiences. We strongly encourage applications from individuals from groups that are underrepresented in biomedical science.

  • Biochemistry, Biophysics, Chemical Biology, and Structural Biology
  • Cell Biology
  • Genetics and Genomics
  • Immunology, Virology, and Microbiology
  • Mechanisms of Human Disease and Cancer Biology
  • Neurosciences and Behavior
  • Organismal Biology and Evolution
  • Physical, Mathematical, and Computational Biology
  • Stem Cells, Development, Regeneration, and Aging


The Rockefeller University provides strong support for the work of its faculty including 100% faculty salary support, benefits that include subsidized housing and an on-site child care center from 3 months of age through preschool, generous start-up funds, new or renovated laboratory space and state-of-the-art core facilities, and support for all graduate students as well as continuing lab support. There are extensive opportunities for collaboration within the University and with neighboring institutions.
