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. The annual cycle for faculty searches begins late summer and the application deadline is generally early to mid-October.

NOTE:  Searches for the 2021-2022 cycle have not yet been determined.  Interested applicants should check this site in mid-summer 2021 for an update on available positions and application procedures.

All applicants are expected to develop and lead a vibrant, independent research program and share our commitment to undergraduate and graduate education by teaching courses and supervising graduate and undergraduate research.  We are 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 must have a PhD, MD, or equivalent terminal degree and should submit a curriculum vitae with a summary of current and proposed research programs, three letters of recommendation, and a statement on their commitment to teaching, mentoring, diversity and outreach.  Candidates may comment on their experiences in these areas and/or how they envision contribution to our ongoing diversity efforts.

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.
