Seeking Faculty in Global Cancer Research
The Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center (HICCC, NCI designated) and the Mailman School of Public Health Department of Epidemiology in partnership with ICAP global health at Columbia University invite applications for a faculty position to join a rapidly expanding initiative focused on global cancer and cancer-related research. We are seeking the recruitment of an early or mid-career Assistant or Associate Professor with exceptional promise, abilities and/or accomplishments in broad areas of population, epidemiologic, or translational cancer-related research in global contexts. Candidates with an interest in global cancer prevention, health promotion, screening, and/or management, particularly in low and middle-income countries, are highly encouraged to apply. In addition, we are especially interested in candidates who come from backgrounds that are under-represented in the fields of cancer research, epidemiology, or population science and who bring perspectives to their research, teaching, and service that reflect membership in groups historically excluded from higher education, epidemiology, and biomedical science as well as a commitment to mutual engagement and bilateral global partnerships.
The selected candidate will be placed on a tenure track or tenured faculty line within the Department of Epidemiology and nominated for membership in the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center within its Cancer Population Science Program. This person will work to advance their own scientific program and a burgeoning collaboration between ICAP/Epidemiology and HICCC, strengthen established partnerships with institutions around the world, and have access to superb shared resources and space as well as a vibrant community of scientists, clinicians and public health experts working within cancer and other areas across Columbia University and its affiliated institutions. Successful candidates must demonstrate enthusiasm for teaching and mentoring a diverse body of students including those belonging to groups that have been historically excluded from higher education, epidemiology, and biomedical science. The Columbia Department of Epidemiology and the HICCC are a community of collaborators with dynamic research, service and teaching strengths in a large variety of areas; see: https://www.publichealth.columbia.edu/become-student/departments/epidemiology/research and https://www.cancer.columbia.edu/research/programs.
We seek a faculty member with a strong commitment to NIH and other externally funded research, mentoring, teaching, and fostering a climate of diversity and inclusion. Doctoral degree (MD, PhD, ScD, DrPH, or equivalent) required with postdoctoral training or experience preferred.
