Employment Opportunities

MIT is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. Women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.

Faculty positions

The 2017-18 application cycle is closed.

The annual faculty search cycle begins late summer and the application deadline is generally November 1. Interested applicants should check this website in Summer 2018 for open faculty positions and specific application instructions.

We regularly conduct faculty searches for positions based in four sections of the department: the Koch Biology Building (Building 68), the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, the Broad Institute, and the Whitehead Institute. Successful applicants will share our commitment to undergraduate and graduate education by teaching courses and supervising graduate and undergraduate research, and will develop and lead independent, internationally competitive research programs.

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).

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.
