Faculty Recruitment

Scripps Research — one of the world's largest, private, nonprofit research organizations — is at the forefront of basic biomedical science, with faculty undertaking medical research that seeks to comprehend the most fundamental processes of life. Over the last decades, the institute has established its core strengths in biomedical research at the interfaces between chemical and biological sciences. Nature Index has ranked Scripps Research second in the world and first in the United States among stand-alone scientific institutes for biomedical research, based on discoveries by the institute’s researchers published in leading scientific journals.

Located in La Jolla, California, Scripps Research also has a vibrant PhD program that is ranked in the top 10 in chemical and biological sciences by U.S. News & World Report. It boasts a collegial and collaborative environment, where faculty, students and postdoctoral scholars can freely interact across disciplines to form synergy in emerging areas of research.

Scripps Research promotes diversity of thought, culture and background in the fields of science. We recruit, train, compensate and promote scientists regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability or other protected status. Individuals from groups that are underrepresented in biomedical research are highly encouraged to apply.

Recruitment for Scripps Research Fellows and Assistant Professor faculty positions will begin in late summer 2023. Please check back for updates and application information.
