Cancer Epidemiologist Faculty Positions
Department of Epidemiology, Greenebaum Cancer Center, Institute of Human Virology , University of Maryland School of Medicine
The Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, School of Medicine, University of Maryland seeks faculty scientists to join the growing Division of Cancer Epidemiology. The Division with a multidisciplinary research focus is recruiting faculty with leadership manifest by productivity in publication and successful grant funding. Faculty scientists with capacity to collaboratively develop and implement epidemiological research projects that integrate biomedical markers in the context of sound study design and insightful quantitative analysis in diverse communities are positioned to impact a vital and growing research enterprise. Recruitment includes funding to promote faculty growth and reward productivity. The Division has a particular interest in targeting cancers that occur excessively in underserved minority populations resulting in disparities in incidence and outcome. The West Baltimore to West Africa Program exploits the University’s access to patients with cancers from the underserved West Baltimore population and Nigeria in West Africa where a well-supported international program provides access to similar populations. These resources support the potential for environmental, nutritional, viral and genetic epidemiological studies. The extensive basic and laboratory research capacity of the Greenebaum Cancer Center, the Institute of Human Virology, and the Genome Research Institute at the University of Maryland School of Medicine provide fertile ground for collaborative research.
Candidates with a PhD, MD and/or MD/PhD/MS (epidemiology, biostatistics) with an interest in engaging in leadership development are encouraged to apply at the Assistant, Associate and Professor level.
