The JCVI is an institute that has pioneered human microbiome research. We are particularly interested in scientists who seek to understand the complex relationships between the human microbiome and the immune system at the mucosal interface. JCVI offers powerful technologies such as genome engineering, single cell genomics and multi-‘Omics approaches to elucidate the roles of microbiota in human disease processes including, but not limited to host-pathogen-commensal interactions, microbiome-autoimmune disease relationships and the influence of the microbiome in nutrition. Candidates that merge wet bench science with informatic approaches are welcome. 

Successful candidates will conduct innovative, independent research, obtain extramural funding, take advantage of interactions with our interdisciplinary, highly collegial group of scientists within JCVI, and complement existing research strengths within the organization. Candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. and a strong track record of publications and collaborations. Postdoctoral research is preferred but not required.

About Our Organization

The J. Craig Venter Institute was formed in October 2006 through the merger of several affiliated and legacy organizations — The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) and The Center for the Advancement of Genomics (TCAG), The J. Craig Venter Science Foundation, The Joint Technology Center, and the Institute for Biological Energy Alternatives (IBEA). Today all these organizations have become one large multidisciplinary genomic-focused organization. With more than 250 scientists and staff, more than 250,000 square feet of laboratory space, and locations in Rockville, Maryland and La Jolla, California, the new JCVI is a world leader in genomic research.
