Faculty Position (Open Rank) in Department of Health Outcomes and Behavior
Moffitt Cancer Center
The Department of Health Outcomes and Behavior at Moffitt Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center on the campus of the University of South Florida, is seeking a faculty member (open rank) with research interests that complement or enhance our existing strengths in behavioral science and outcomes research. The Department has 18 faculty engaged in research on tobacco use, cancer prevention and early detection, quality of life during and after cancer treatment, cancer-related health disparities, cancer caregivers, and health outcomes. We will consider any relevant area of research, but are particularly interested in the following research areas: Intervention Research; Health Outcomes; Cancer Care Delivery; Implementation Science.
Resources for conducting research include the center’s integrated repository of clinical and research data on a large cohort of patients (Total Cancer Care® plus founding membership in the Oncology Research Information Exchange Network), diverse networks of community partners, a state-wide affiliate network of treatment providers, several research centers of excellence, and shared resources that include biostatistics, biomedical informatics, and survey methods. Moreover, Moffitt is a leader in the development of clinical care pathways and innovative payment models that lend themselves to applied research. Intra- and inter-disciplinary collaborations are encouraged and facilitated.
Successful candidates must hold a doctorate degree and have relevant research training and experience. We seek academic researchers who can contribute immediately, as evidenced by a history of peer-reviewed funding and publication. Academic rank beyond that of Assistant Member/Assistant Professor will be commensurate with experience and qualifications. The position is tenure-earning. Moffitt is a free-standing cancer center affiliated with the University of South Florida, and Moffitt faculty members typically hold appointments in the Department of Oncologic Sciences or other departments at the university. Moffitt-based faculty members focus their efforts on research, with minimal expectations for formal teaching. Salary and start-up funds are highly competitive.
Moffitt Cancer Center is located in Tampa, Florida, recently named an “urban gem” and the “Best City in the Southeast” by Money magazine. Aside from the sunshine, great beaches, year-round outdoor recreation and easy living associated with the Gulf Coast of Florida, Tampa is a thriving metropolitan city with unique cultural attractions and a high quality of life.
Questions regarding the position should be directed to: Thomas Brandon, Ph.D., Chair, Department of Health Outcomes and Behavior (Thomas.Brandon@Moffitt.org). Review of applications will begin January 2, 2018, but applications will be considered until the position is filled. Start date is flexible.
