Research at The Rockefeller University

Centered around 72 cutting-edge laboratories working in a broad range of fields, The Rockefeller University fosters a collaborative research environment for its faculty. Our commitment to funding high-risk, high-reward science gives scientists freedom to pursue projects that might never occur elsewhere.

Rockefeller labs don’t straddle the boundaries between fields. They dive into those spaces headfirst.


A clearinghouse of opportunities, as well as a resource for one-on-one counseling, Rockefeller’s Office of Career and Professional Development is a springboard to a rewarding career in science. From traditional academic appointments to jobs in biotech, pharma, business, and policy, Rockefeller students thrive professionally.
