• Princeton University seeks applications to contribute to a major new initiative with biological foci on cancer, immunity, and metabolism (Ludwig Princeton Branch). The research focus of the Ludwig Princeton Branch is cancer metabolism (including immune metabolism and tumor microenvironment), broadly defined to also encompass development of relevant physical, chemical, computational, and engineering technologies and exploration of relevant biological factors including diet and the microbiome.

• Princeton University seeks applications for an assistant, associate or full professor to contribute to a major new initiative at the interface between the physical and computational sciences and disease biology, with a particular focus on cancer and metabolism (Ludwig Princeton Branch). Candidates are expected to devote a meaningful portion of their research effort to work that bridges between a hard science, computer science, or engineering discipline and an area of biology of relevance to the Ludwig Princeton Branch, such as cancer, metabolism, immunology, or the microbiome.
