Job Information/Description:

The Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, College of Medicine, at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) invites talented researchers to join an exemplary team of investigators to advance novel research in cancer control and population sciences. Applicants who qualify for Assistant or Associate Professor and with a terminal degree (e.g. MD, PhD, ScD) are invited to apply for 12-month tenure-track positions. Applicants for an Associate Professor position should have a strong record of peer-reviewed research publications and a strong record of extramural funding. Applicants for an Assistant Professor position should have a record of peer-reviewed publications and should have extramural funding or demonstrate evidence of the ability to obtain extramural funding if s/he is not currently funded. Successful applicants will hold an academic appointment in the hiring department.

Faculty positions are supported by generous funds from the state as part of a significant investment to secure National Cancer Institute cancer center designation. The Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute is the nation’s premier cancer center in Arkansas, with the largest cancer research portfolio in the state. The Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute treats over 2,500 patients annually and trains students and health professionals. Our faculty and staff are committed to advancing research that leads to novel prevention and treatment strategies that are delivered in the community and clinic settings.

The Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences Program is one of three premier research programs that provides ample opportunities for transdisciplinary, translational, and high impact research. The Program seeks to define and understand the etiology of cancer health disparities in rural, low resource, medically underserved, racialized, and minoritized communities across Arkansas. Our research portfolio spans primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention and includes research that aims to reduce the major risk factors for cancer, improve timely screening and early detection, and improve cancer survivorship and quality of life. High priority research areas of interest include cancer prevention (tobacco, nutrition security, obesity), cancer screening in rural areas, and cancer survivorship. Our mobile health screening vans provide opportunities to develop unique community engaged research programs in breast, colorectal, and lung cancer screening to reach rural populations. Because social and structural determinants are major underlying risk factors for cancer in Arkansas, the Program leverages support from the Translational Research Institute (NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award), the P50 Center for Research Health and Social Justice (NIMHD), multiple Centers for Biomedical Research (COBRE), the Arkansas State Colorectal Cancer Screening Program, the UAMS Institute for Digital Health and Innovation, the UAMS Psychiatric Research Institute, the National Center for Toxicology Research (FDA), and through multiple colleges and departments to advance cancer prevention and control research unique to our catchment area. Our multi-million-dollar NIH-funded center and infrastructure grants provide numerous opportunities for pilot funding, training, and collaborative partnerships.

The Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute is located in the capital city of Little Rock. The central location, quality of life, job market, cost of living, unique neighborhoods, cultural attractions including the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum, and outdoor life make it one of America’s top places to live and retire. We offer a collaborative work environment and productive partnerships across UAMS Colleges as well as state health agencies, health care providers, business and law schools, and other academic institutions.

Candidates should email a current CV, a letter describing their background and professional interests, and a list of at least three possible references to: Rikki Rogers, Program Administrator, Office of the Director, Winthrop P.
