The Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB) is a leading research institute in biological sciences funded by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). Its mission is to develop and foster a vibrant research culture for cutting-edge basic biomedical sciences. IMCB’s research activities focus on the areas of Animal Models of Development and Disease, Cancer Genetics and Therapeutics, Cell Biology in Health and Disease, and Structural Biology and Drug Discovery.
IMCB is seeking two outstanding Principal Investigators (PI) to carry out internationally competitive research in an area of cell biology, developmental biology, structural biology or systems biology.
The research should have a clear relevance to human diseases. Successful candidates are expected to build and maintain a strong research programme that complements the existing programmes and to establish collaborations with the medical community and industry. We are particularly interested in developing new technologies and platforms that would strengthen the current programmes within the Institute.
These PI positions are equivalent to that of an Assistant Professor in the university system. Successful candidates can look forward to a competitive salary package and resources as well as a dynamic work environment. Although the research programme will be supported by core funding, PIs will be expected to expand their research activities by securing additional funds through various grant schemes in Singapore.

Consideration of applicants will begin on 1 July 2013 and will continue until the positions are filled. To apply, please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, description of research plans, and organise three letters of reference to be sent to:
