We are dedicated to recruiting the most brilliant biomedical research scientists, allowing them to choose their scientific pursuits, providing them with comprehensive support, and surrounding them with collaborative and energetic colleagues who are leaders in their fields. We conduct open searches across all fields of biomedical and clinical research.
Our institution is small, dynamic, and designed to support and stimulate science, with an administration and staff entirely committed to meeting the needs of our scientists and eliminating distractions from their research. There are no mandatory teaching or administrative responsibilities, and no departments or hierarchical restrictions.
Our dedication to excellence gives Rockefeller scientists a significant advantage as they work across disciplines and share knowledge, driving one another to pursue big ideas and achieve transformational discoveries. This strong support fosters a culture with an extremely dedicated and satisfied faculty, many of whom have long associations with the university.
We are committed to recruiting and supporting a diverse scientific community and seek to create a faculty of individuals from different backgrounds with a wide range of perspectives and experiences, including from all races, nationalities, ethnicities, religions, genders, sexual orientations, identities, abilities, ages, military and socioeconomic status, and more. We encourage anyone who is interested to apply for a faculty position at Rockefeller.
We place a high emphasis on quality of life for our scientists, enabling them to focus deeply on their research by providing childcare, mortgage and housing support, health and wellness services, and other resources to help navigate the many layers of an academic life.
