It’s sad, but it seems safe to say that almost everyone knows someone who has been victimized by cancer. The good news is that constantly advancing medical knowledge brings us ever closer to winning the battle with all cancers. By combining medical know-how with a focus on people and the psychiatric effects of cancer, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has put itself at the forefront of the battle for almost 125 years. Whether you’re an aspiring doctor, looking to work in the healthcare industry, or have a personal vendetta against cancer, Sloan-Kettering has jobs that will help you pursue your passion.
We’re happy to see that Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has a great Jobs website with plenty of information to help job searchers learn more about what types of opportunities best suit them. This site is about as well done as any we’ve seen, and we also appreciated the fact that there is a special section for college students with a focus on entry-level jobs. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center offers four types of entry-level positions: Session Assistant, Physician’s Office Assistant, Research Study Assistant, and Research Opportunities (in Cancer Biology & Genetics, Cell Biology, Computational Biology, Developmental Biology, Immunology, Molecular Biology, Molecular Pharmacology and Chemistry, and Structural Biology). You can read more about each of these positions on Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s College Recruitment page.
You can apply for specific job openings, but it seems that entry-level candidates are better off applying for one of the four positions that we mentioned in the previous paragraph. Memorial Sloan-Kettering has been making the rounds at non-profit career fairs, so you may be able to catch them there to submit a resume, or you can contact Tara Stampe, their College Recruitment Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Jobs at Memorial Sloan-Kettering aren’t just available at their main campus on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, but also at their other work sites, which include locations in New York City, Westchester County, Long Island, and New Jersey.
Note: On April 27th we revisited entry-level jobs at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

I was having a lot of trouble finding a research job in NY, and I saw MSKCC featured here, so I thought why not apply there.
Now after 2 months of interviews, I got a position! I’ll be starting work at MSKCC as a research assistant and am very grateful for all the wonderful companies that are featured on this site.
I was interviewed at Memorial Sloan. The following day, I was emailed asking for references. Is this a positive sign or do they do that to everyone?. I really want to work for MSKCC.
How long did it take for them to contact you after you sent your application? Hope you got the job!
It’s always great to hear that we helped somone find and land a job. If you have any tips on how other readers can land a job with MSKCC, please share them here in the comments.
Hey ! I applied for Research Study Assistant and waiting for interview. I am not sure what they are going to ask. One more question how many interview I have to face and what they are are going to ask? I believe there must be one telephonic interview and one would be as person. I am not sure about the salary.Please tell me detail.
Sorry about not replying sooner, I didn’t notice there was a comment on the old posts.
They ask the usual questions about your strengths, weaknesses, time management, etc. the RSA position demands a lot of organization and attention to detail, so they will ask you to cite examples of that. You might also be asked about how comfortable you are working with people of higher authority than you, such as doctors and nurses. Each interview is about 30-45 minutes. I had 4 interviews before I was offered a position, another person had 6, so it depends on the department.
Salary is mediocre, it’s average for entry level 35-40k, but they offer excellent benefts, such as healthcare, dental, etc.
Hope that helps!
Thanks for the reply that will really help me but I have a one more querry I submitted my resume and it is almost one month past and I did not hear anything but just confirmation of receiving my resume . I wonder how long does it take to have a interview? You can email your answer also on my email address firstname.lastname@example.org
I am interested in entry level research position at MSKCC. I am especially interested in computational biology.
Are this research positions very competitive? How long should I wait to be invited to an interview?
Do they just hire somebody if some position open? Or do they hire periodically?
I am also interested in unpaid or volunteer positions at MSKCC. Do they offer unpaid or volunteer research positions? I found volunteer opportunities like administrative or patient care, but I cannot find research volunteer information.
Thank you very much
I submitted my resume three weeks ago…my question is, does anyone know how long does it take to hear from them? Also, should I attempt emailing the College recruitment Tara Stampe? I would really appreciate your advice.
I interviewed on June 4th, I was told that day that she wanted me to come back end of June/beginning of July, I have been trying to get a hold of this recruiter who told me this, and she will not respond to my emails or call me back. I’m quite upset and sad about this. At least just tell me that it’s not going to happen anymore. Did I mention I spent $330 on a plane ticket from MI for that first interview? A little discouraged. I wanted this really bad.
