Join Our Team
Are you a world-class scientist? We're looking for you.
Join an experienced leadership team in establishing a robust science-driven drug development pipeline at MD Anderson.
The Institute for Applied Cancer Science is located in the warm, diverse and cosmopolitan city of Houston, Texas. It’s in a newly constructed, modern facility within The University of Texas Research Park, an area south of the Texas Medical Center that’s considered an incubator for academic and commercial biotechnology.
Our employees have access to the latest and most advanced in technology, resources and knowledge within MD Anderson and the TMC, the largest medical center in the world. Building amenities include an on-site research library, lecture auditorium, colorful collaboration rooms, spacious kitchens and lounge areas, natural light and on-site parking.
Find your role on our innovative team and join us in the fight against cancer. Institute leadership recently discussed our mission, goals and the amazing opportunities that lie ahead.
We're bringing together the best of academia and industry in a unique environment, to accelerate translation of basic science discoveries into effective cancer therapies.
Teams of top-notch scientists with diverse backgrounds, from cancer genomics to cell and animal biology to synthetic organic chemistry, are working collaboratively to identify new drugs that will be effective in treating tumors based on their genetic fingerprints.
Career advancement and recognition of achievements for institute scientists are based on their ability to work collaboratively to achieve significant impact on the disease types under study.
In addition to investing in its own portfolio of projects, the institute will enhance the impact of its findings and leverage additional capabilities by actively collaborating with other non-profit and pharmaceutical research and development organizations.
From career opportunities to recreation, from culture to cuisine, the Houston region has it all.
