Scientific Staff Openings
All positions require a Ph.D. or M.D. in the appropriate field(s) and experience as indicated.
The Monell Chemical Senses Center is the world’s premier institute devoted to basic, multidisciplinary research on the mechanisms and function of olfaction, gustation and chemesthesis. We are currently inviting applications for full-time junior or senior faculty positions. We seek outstanding investigators from diverse disciplines who are interested in pursuing research in olfaction and/or nutrition, metabolism or appetite related to the chemical senses. Applicants with interest and experience in clinically relevant research programs are especially encouraged to apply. Candidates must possess a Ph.D. or M.D. and have postdoctoral experience. The successful junior candidate will be expected to develop and fund an independent research program and collaborate with colleagues at the Center. Senior level applicants should have a well-established and funded research program with a potential for growth and collaboration.
The Monell Center is adjacent to the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University in Philadelphia. Further information about the Center can be found at http://www.monell.org.
A postdoctoral position is currently available for research in the molecular mechanisms of taste stem cells and chemosensory cells of the gut (Stem Cells 31, 992-1000, 2013; PNAS 111, 16401-16406, 2014). Candidates with a PhD or equivalent degree in molecular biology, genetics, neuroscience, immunology, physiology or related field are preferred. A background in chemosensory research is not required. Stipend is in accordance with NIH standards. This position is supported by NIH and industry grants.

All positions require a minimum Bachelors degree in the appropriate field(s) and experience as indicated.
A full-time research technician position is available in the Mainland lab to assist with studies on human smell perception. A fundamental problem in neuroscience is mapping the physical properties of a stimulus to perceptual characteristics. In vision, wavelength translates into color; in audition, frequency translates into pitch. By contrast, the mapping from chemical structure to olfactory perception is unknown. In other words, there is not a scientist or perfumer in the world who can view a novel molecular structure and predict how it will smell. Our research is focused on relating molecular structure to olfactory perception using both psychophysics and molecular biology.
Primary responsibilities include sample preparation, data scoring/organization, and subject testing support.
The ideal candidate must be highly organized, detail oriented and able to work independently. Experience with Institutional Review Board procedures, Microsoft Access and human subject testing is preferred. A bachelor’s degree in psychology, neuroscience or a related field is required.

“The first time I came to Monell, I was struck by the spirit that pervades the place. It was thrilling to see scientists 20 and 30 years into their research careers bubbling over with energy, excitement and ideas. I was — and remain — enchanted by the opportunities for cross-fertilization.”
