The Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine and the Mayo Clinic Children's Research Center are seeking to recruit a creative and energetic Clinician Investigator/Career Scientist who will develop and implement gene therapy approaches to address health conditions that impact children. The successful candidate will establish an active research program that bridges discovery through clinical application. Research areas of interest include but are not limited to: 1) cell therapy for treatment of pediatric illnesses; 2) viral delivery of corrective genes in vivo; 3) development of relevant technology.
This position will include long-term faculty salary support and a travel budget, as well as a competitive startup package.

For physician scientists, a portion of time engaged in clinical practice could be offered.
The successful candidate will have a doctoral degree (e.g. PhD and/or MD) with background in a relevant scientific field (e.g., cell or gene therapy, virology, biochemistry), and have an established track record of relevant research accomplishments and scholarship exemplified by publications and/or significant extramural funding, as well as a strong collaborative approach to science.
