Job Information/Description:

THE MAYO CLINIC CANCER CENTER POPULATION SCIENCES PROGRAM is recruiting an institutionally-supported faculty position to develop cutting edge research programs that improve the health of patients and communities. The faculty member will join a diverse team of population scientists committed to advancing innovative high-impact research in cancer prevention, cancer screening, outcomes and survivorship, and/or implementation science, while promoting health equity. The successful candidate will leverage the extensive resources of the three-site Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center (Rochester, MN, Scottsdale, AZ and Jacksonville, FL) and work effectively with community engagement programs. The faculty appointments will include substantial, long-term research support, including a competitive compensation package, technical and computational resources, and exceptional benefits. Academic rank, salary, and start-up package will be commensurate with experience.

The successful candidates are expected to possess a doctoral level degree in a relevant discipline, and demonstrated expertise in population research on cancer and/or its predisposing risk factors. Candidates will possess strong skills in experimental and/or observational designs, intervention and/or implementation research, and content knowledge of cancer prevention and control. Expertise and accomplishments related to program building, including field work, community outreach and healthy equity is preferred. A commitment to multidisciplinary team science, pursuing extramural funding, and publishing/dissemination of research findings is essential. Potential for clinical practice or development of laboratory-based research with a cancer prevention focus is negotiable.

Mayo Clinic is renowned for its extensive resources that support population sciences research and for the breadth of expertise of its highly accomplished faculty. 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. Resources include multiple core laboratories that are available to support researchers with state-of-the-science technologies, and numerous patient registries and databases. Mayo Clinic offers substantial opportunities to apply for targeted competitive funding opportunities sponsored by Centers, Programs and SPOREs. 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.
