The Ludwig Princeton Branch, a new branch of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research on Princeton’s campus, seeks to fill new research roles investigating cancer metabolism and progression. The roles are Ludwig Princeton Associate Research Scholar and Ludwig Postdoctoral Research Associate at Princeton.

Ludwig Princeton Scholars is a new program seeking early-career scientists who have completed their Ph.D., M.D. or clinical training in the past two years. Research in the program will focus on cancer metabolism, broadly defined to include technology development, computation, biological studies, drug development, and clinical trials relevant to diet, metabolism, cancer, cell growth, metastasis, autophagy, microbiome, and/or the immune system. Appropriate educational backgrounds include a Ph.D. in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, physics, or an M.D.

The appointment will be as Associate Research Scholar, renewable for up to five years, with a competitive salary and research support. Scholars will receive mentorship from at least two faculty members, one of whom will be a full member of the Ludwig Princeton Branch. Scholars may also have the opportunity to teach. Submission of application materials is highly encouraged by Sept. 1, 2021.

Additionally, postdoctoral or more senior research positions are available in the Ludwig Princeton Branch to study metabolism and tumor-microenvironment interactions during cancer progression. Ludwig welcomes candidates for the Ludwig Postdoctoral Research Associate role who have or expect to have a Ph.D. in molecular cell biology, cancer biology, chemical biology, biochemistry, cancer genomics, genetics, mass spectrometry, physical chemistry, or computational and systems analysis. Appointments are for one year, with the possibility of renewal pending satisfactory performance and continued funding. Applicants must select at least one research mentor from the Ludwig Princeton Branch’s Principal Investigators and members.
