RUTGERS CANCER INSTITUTE OF NEW JERSEY
Faculty Position Available
Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey invites candidates to apply for a tenure-track faculty position in behavioral science, symptom management, implementation research, oncology care delivery, cancer outcomes, cancer disparities, or cancer epidemiology research with demonstrated academic track record of publications and currently active federal R01 level grant funding. Academic rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. A joint appointment in another academic department/School will be supported.
The successful candidate will be joining the Cancer Prevention and Control Program at the Cancer Institute. This group includes resident behavioral scientists, cancer health disparities researchers, and cancer epidemiologists, with additional epidemiologists, tobacco control scientists, and behavioral researchers at the Rutgers School of Public Health. There are excellent opportunities for collaborations with the Rutgers School of Public Health, the Institute for Health, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, RWJBarnabas Health System, Rutgers Cancer Institute at Newark University Hospital, and Princeton University. Program members also have strong ties to the very large South Asian community, minority populations, and the evolving cancer screening network in New Jersey. The Cancer Institute houses the SEER New Jersey State Cancer Registry, which facilitates research through rapid case ascertainment of new cancer cases. There are also opportunities to be involved in several ongoing studies, including a cohort of African American breast cancer survivors and the Big 10 cancer consortium. In addition, the Cancer Institute has four (4) shared resources available to faculty; 1) biostatistics, 2) data management services via DatStat, 3) a bio-specimen repository, and; 4) access to ORIEN (Oncology Research Information Exchange Network), a shared resource for precision oncology data for epidemiology studies.
The successful applicant will be expected to maintain an innovative, independent, collaborative and extramurally-funded research program. Candidates should possess a doctoral degree in psychology, public health, and/or epidemiology with a strong publication record and currently active external grant funding. Strong preference will be given to applicants with an established record of accomplishment in interdisciplinary collaboration and an extramurally funded research program.
Rutgers Cancer Institute is the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in the state and is easily accessible to Manhattan, Newark Airport, and Philadelphia by public transportation.
