Title Assistant Professor of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology
School Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Department/Area Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology
Position Description

Harvard University is recruiting tenure-track faculty for the multi-disciplinary Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology (HSCRB), Harvard’s first joint department bridging the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the Harvard Medical School.

The Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology is situated in the University’s Cambridge campus, with research conducted in new, state-of-the-art laboratories, as well as in three of Harvard’s affiliated world-class hospitals. The ultimate goal of the Department’s research is combating disease and tissue degeneration, and improving human health.

The Department’s research and teaching mission emphasizes a broad range of topics including developmental biology, stem and progenitor cell biology, neuroscience, tissue and organ formation, tissue repair, regeneration, immunology, computational biology, and aging. A list of HSCRB faculty is available at

We seek to hire multiple junior faculty members (basic scientists or physician scientists). They will join a dedicated core of scientists and physician-scientists utilizing stem cell and regenerative biology to inform the understanding and treatment of human disease. We seek faculty colleagues who pursue a greater understanding of biology regardless of the approach they employ, be it computational biology, immunology, or the organismal study of tissue repair.

We strongly encourage applications from women and minority candidates.
