Seeking Cancer Scientists to Enhance Strategic Areas for Growth

The Hollings Cancer Center (HCC), a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center of the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, was established in 1993, designated in 2009, and renewed in 2014. There are currently 125 HCC cancer scientists holding a portfolio of more than $43M in extramural cancer research funding.  As further indication of the well-established research culture and infrastructure, MUSC also holds the NIH Clinical & Translational Science Award.

As part of its most recent strategic planning efforts for continued growth in cancer research, the HCC in partnership with MUSC’s College of Medicine are inviting applications for faculty positions at the Associate/Full Professor level from individuals with national reputations in several areas of cancer biology and solid records of active collaborative, peer-reviewed funded research.   Candidates are being sought in the following programs and specific areas of research:

  • Cancer Genes and Molecular Regulation (RNA biology and tumorigenesis or stem cell biology)
  • Developmental Cancer Therapeutics (Chemical/Structural biology, small molecule-based pharmacology; drug targets; redox pathways; translational oncology)
  • Lipid Signaling in Cancer (Cancer cell biology and inflammation with regards to regulation by   phospho-lipid, sphingolipid and/or prostaglandin signaling) 
  • Cancer Immunology (Mucosal immunology, vaccinology or translational/clinical immuno-oncology)
  • Cancer Genomics (Cancer initiation, progression, metastasis and resistance through the genomic analysis of human cancers and mouse models of cancer)
  • Tumor Microenvironment (multi-disciplinary approaches to evaluate tumor stroma heterogeneity and consequences to Cancer)
  • Applicants must have a PhD or MD with a strong record of research accomplishments and peer-reviewed publications.    Successful candidates will be expected to maintain a vigorous, nationally-recognized basic, translational, or clinical research effort. Based on programmatic fit and interest of the candidate, single or joint appointments to basic science or clinical departments will be made. Joint appointments with our clinical departments are also possible for candidates with clinical interests.  We will offer competitive start-up funding, well-designed laboratory space, and access to state-of-the-art core facilities.
