Population Science Faculty Position 

Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey invites candidates to apply for a tenure-track faculty position in cancer survivorship, symptom management, oncology care delivery, and/or implementation science with demonstrated academic track record of publications and currently active funding.  Academic rank is open and is commensurate with qualifications and experience. A joint appointment in another academic department/School will be supported. A leadership role for the Population Science section is possible, depending on the faculty candidate’s rank.

The successful candidate will be joining the Population Science Section and the Cancer Prevention and Control Program at the Cancer Institute, as well as a newly-formed Center of Excellence in Cancer Survivorship. This group includes cancer control scientists with expertise in cancer survivorship, cancer prevention, m-health and social media interventions, and psychological interventions for cancer patients and their families. The Cancer Institute also has a vibrant and active research program in cancer epidemiology and cancer disparities, as well as a Center for Tobacco Research at the Rutgers School of Public Health. There is a strong and growing research program in cancer survivorship in primary care settings at the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. With the integration of the Cancer Institute into the RWJBarnabas Health System, there are many opportunities for research collaboration and study implementation cross the entire state.  Program members also have strong ties to the very large South Asian community, minority populations, and the evolving Screen NJ program 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 and to participate in research consortia.  In addition, the Cancer Institute has numerous shared resources available to faculty, including: 1) biostatistics, 2) project and 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 candidate will be expected to maintain an innovative, independent, collaborative and extramurally-funded research program.  Candidates must possess a doctoral degree in behavioral science or health-related profession with a strong publication record. Preference will be given to applicants with an established and extramurally-funded research program and a interest in a leadership role.

Rutgers Cancer Institute is the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in the state and is easily accessible to New York City, Newark Airport, and Philadelphia by public transportation.
