Outstanding opportunity available at the Cedars-Sinai Inflammatory Bowel and Immunobiology Research Institute (IBIRI) for a researcher at the assistant or associate professor level. IBIRI brings basic laboratory, translational, clinical and drug development research together in a 360°, highly-interactive model, with a goal of accelerating the rate at which scientific discovery is applied to patient care. Researchers with complementary programs in basic or translational research are encouraged to apply. The Director of IBIRI is Dr. Stephan Targan. Members of the institute are expected to interact with each other, colleagues at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and collaborators nationally and internationally, and to build independent, grant-funded research programs. IBIRI is home to the unique resource known as the Cedars-Sinai MIRIAD IBD Biobank, one of the world’s largest repositories of well-characterized patient specimens with associated clinical metadata.
