Job Information/Description:

The Mayo Clinic Cancer Center is recruiting candidates for three institutionally-supported faculty positions in its Population Sciences Program to develop cutting edge research programs that improve the health of patients and communities. The faculty members will join a diverse team of population scientists to drive innovative research across the spectrum of cancer population sciences with emphasis on advancing health equity in a broad range of high-impact scientific areas. Successful candidates will leverage the extensive resources of the three-site Mayo Clinic Cancer Center (Rochester, MN, Scottsdale, AZ and Jacksonville, FL) and develop effective community outreach programs, including projects to reduce health care disparities. The Population Sciences Program spans three overarching themes: (1) Cancer risk factors and biomarkers; (2) Primary and secondary cancer prevention; and (3) Survivorship and health care delivery/health equity. Appointments will include substantial, long-term research support, including a highly competitive compensation package, technical and computational resources, and exceptional benefits. Academic rank, salary, and start-up package will be commensurate with experience. Mayo Clinic is renowned for its extensive resources that support population sciences research and for its highly accomplished faculty with a breadth of expertise in cancer research. Applicants can consult the Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center website to gain knowledge about the Cancer Center’s resources in order to propose complementary programs that leverage existing strengths and expand vistas for advances in population science research. It is anticipated that faculty will work closely with the newly formed Center for Health Equity and Community Engagement Research, which has substantial infrastructure built in the community, in order to apply scientific findings to improve care in our local communities.
Qualifications: The successful candidates are expected to possess a doctoral level degree in a relevant discipline, and demonstrated expertise in cancer population sciences. Candidates will possess strong skills in experimental and/or observational designs, intervention research, and content knowledge of cancer control. Expertise and accomplishments related to program building, including epidemiological field work, community outreach and minority health is preferred. A commitment to multidisciplinary team science, pursuing extramural funding, and publishing/dissemination of research findings is essential.
