Employment Opportunities

Employment Opportunities

MIT is an equal employment opportunity employer.  All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, ancestry, or national or ethnic origin.

Faculty positions

We regularly conduct faculty searches for positions based in four sections of the department: the main Biology building (Building 68), the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, the Whitehead Institute, and the Broad Institute.

Applicants are expected to share our commitment to undergraduate and graduate education by teaching courses and supervising graduate and undergraduate research, as well as develop and lead a vibrant, independent research program.  We are also particularly interested in candidates who will help promote and provide diversity.

Candidates may apply for multiple positions, but must submit a separate application for each position. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, ~3-page summary of current and proposed research, and statement of teaching interests, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent on their behalf to the relevant search(es).

The annual cycle for faculty searches begins late summer and the application deadline is normally October 15.  Applications for the 2018-19 cycle are no longer accepted.  Interested candidates should check this website in August 2019 for next year’s openings.

Postdoctoral positions

Postdoctoral positions are arranged directly with individual faculty members and, thus, not advertised here.

Non-academic positions

A complete listing of all non-academic positions at MIT is available on the Human Resources website.
