Cincinnati Children’s has a long and distinguished history of scientific innovation that has changed the face of pediatric medicine—the work being done in CuSTOM will revolutionize it.

As a first-of-its-kind program, we are constantly growing and are always interested in recruiting new faculty, training postdoctoral research fellows and seeking commercial partners.

General Information, Membership, Training and Career Opportunities


We're Recruiting

CuSTOM is is launching a major new initiative to recruit Assistant Professor tenure-track faculty. We invite applications from innovative collaborative investigators with PhD, MD, or MD/PhD degrees focusing on basic or translational research in human development or disease using stem cells or organoid models. Investigators using single cell analysis, live imaging or quantitative computational approaches will benefit from ongoing institutional investment in these areas. Applicants should submit their curriculum vitae, a statement of their research interests, and contact information for three people who will provide letters of recommendation to CuSTOM@cchmc.org.

CuSTOM also seeks a motivated collaborative postdoctoral fellow to investigate single cell genomics of human GI organoids in regenerative medicine. Studies will focus on the mesenchymal niche that supports engraftment during transplantation.

The Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and the University of Cincinnati are Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employers committed to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion. Qualified women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
