Establishing Your Research Program at Rockefeller
Hear From Some of Our Recently Recruited Junior Faculty
Gaby Maimon, Ph.D.
"Rockefeller offers colleagues who have seeded entirely new fields, students and post-docs with bold visions for the future, an administration and faculty that are on the same side, a long tenure clock that facilitates taking risks, a small community where everyone knows you, a funding approach that promotes doing experiments over writing grants, and a department-less structure that yields out-of-the-box collaborations. I can<92>t imagine a better environment for discovering something big, or at least having fun while trying."
Daniel Mucida, Ph.D.
"My primary interest is Immunology. Even being traditionally a small University, Rockefeller has perhaps the most impressive genealogy tree in the field of Immunology and Infectious Diseases. What is mind boggling is that Rockefeller<92>s contributions to other fields in Biology are also stupendous. It was only after I joined RU that I began to realize how that is achieved: by borderless interactions between fields, with unrestricted support to basic, big picture science."
Sebastian Klinge, Ph.D.
"The vibrant scientific culture at Rockefeller is unique and extremely supportive for junior faculty. Having outstanding scientists in diverse fields as colleagues provides a phenomenal environment to pursue new research programs."
