Junior investigators should have a strong publication record and evidence of successful competition for external funding is preferred. Senior candidates must have a strong publication record and history of NIH- or equivalent extramural funding. The selected individual is expected to develop and/ or maintain a nationally and internationally recognized extramurally funded research program.

Mayo Clinic offers a highly competitive compensation package with sustained intramural salary support, outstanding laboratory facilities, capital equipment funding, technical and computational resources, and exceptional benefits. The Mayo Clinic Department of Immunology is a three-site department with 41 independent investigators.
