Investigators dedicated to improving the quality of cancer care for diverse populations through research are sought for Postdoctoral and/or Instructor positions in the Population Sciences Research Program of an NCI-designated consortium cancer center with investigators collaborating from two research universities. Research teams are supported by exceptional community outreach and engagement programs, as well as a unique transdisciplinary, integrated population science mechanism to promote interactions among basic, clinical, and population scientists in the conduct of team science.

Research investigators will join funded faculty research teams with generous start-up funds, competitive compensation, and modern facilities, along with administrative and infrastructure services.

Faculty mentors have primary and secondary faculty appointment(s)/affiliation(s) in one or more departments / divisions of the University Medical College and/or other University Colleges at the two universities.

PhD required. Experience in Aging and Cancer Research prioritized. Biostatistics and/or Cancer Survivorship research experience also valuable.
