We are always willing to help black cancer researchers in our network in all aspects of their career, including finding suitable roles. Please note, that the roles listed are from external organisations and BIC is not involved in the hiring process. With that said, we'll be waiting to hear your success story.

Phillips Lab 

University of Pennsylvania

Abramson Cancer Center and the Epigenetics Institute


This posting is for research positions in the Phillips Lab .


The focus of the lab is to investigate mechanisms of epigenetic regulation which drive brain cancer. The lab employs a range of techniques including in vivo models, molecular biology, single-cell genomic approaches to address questions with the findings setting the stage for novel treatments for these aggressive cancers. Candidates with a background in computational biology, cancer biology or epigenetics are highly desireable though talented and motivated individuals with a variety of backgrounds will be strongly considered.


We are recruiting at the post-doctoral and research assistant level.

The Bargonetti Lab

Department of Biological Sciences Hunter College

City University of New York (CUNY)


This posting is for a postdoctoral research role in the Bargonetti Lab .


Postdoctoral Ph.D., M.D., or M.D./Ph.D. researchers can be considered for support

through the Molecular and Translational Oncology Research Program (MTOR). All

applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States. We are

seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellow applicants who are interested in

interdisciplinary basic cancer with clinical translation research for the Weill Cornell T32

program. The research area to be studied with Dr. Bargonetti will focus on the mutant

p53, MDM2, and MDMX pathways as they relate to DNA repair and DNA replication.

Candidates with PhD training (and publications) in molecular biology, cell biology,

cancer biology and/or biochemistry are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates

must be published authors in order to apply for this competitive T32 training program

position. The position will be to work on a collaborative project that is across Weill

Cornell Medical College, Hunter College and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

with the collaborating group that best allows for the translational science project that is

proposed in collaboration with the preceptor and collaborators.

Application requirements: 

  • Cover letter indicating current and future research interests as well as your motivation for joining the group

  • Curriculum vitae

  • Brief summary of previous research experience (less than three pages)

 The Icahn School of Medicine

The Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai


This posting is for assistant/associate/full professorships at Mount Sinai.


The Tisch Cancer Institute (TCI), an NCI-Designated Cancer Center, and the Department of Oncological Sciences of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai are seeking exceptional candidates (PhD, MD, or MD/PhD) of the highest caliber for faculty positions focused on cancer research, whose work—as consistent with our mission—will lead to advances in cancer prevention, prognosis, and therapy. Investigators with a focus in the areas of cancer epigenetics, genetics, metabolism, tumor microenvironment and targeted therapies are highly encouraged to apply. Investigators who are developing state-of-the-art technologies in data science, proteomics, single cell profiling, computational biology and model systems, are also of great interest to our mission.

Successful candidates will be expected to develop or expand independently funded research. New recruits will augment an intellectually vibrant and growing group of full-time faculty, with exceptional mentoring for all junior faculty.

Individuals underrepresented in science have additional opportunities through the Mount Sinai Laureates Program ( which seeks to increase the diversity of our research faculty and support their growth as investigators and development towards leadership roles. We are highly committed to this purpose within our cancer center.

The TCI offers highly competitive start-up packages, salaries and benefits. Interested candidates are invited to submit the following documents in one PDF file by April 15, 2021:

  1. Letter of interest

  2. Curriculum vitae


Seattle Children’s Research Institute

Seattle Children’s Research Institute Career Development Program


This posting is for a Career Development Program for two early stage career scientists with high potential for NIH funding for a 3-year experience that provides salary, research funds, and mentorship.


The Seattle Children’s Research Institute Career Development Program provides the time, funding, mentorship and training necessary to foster the early career development of the next generation of Seattle Children’s researchers. 

Recipients of a Seattle Children’s Research Institute Career Development Award will receive up to three years of salary support and project funds. We anticipate two scientists will be selected into the 2021 cohort. This program is open to both current Seattle Children’s investigators and external investigators who would like to join Seattle Children’s. We encourage applications from all health professions and scientists with diverse backgrounds.

Deadline: 23 April 2021
