Job Information/Description:

ChristianaCare is hiring a Postdoctoral Fellow for the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center and Research Institute.

The Helen F.

In addition, through its novel partnership with the Wistar Institute Cancer Center, an NCI-Designated Basic Laboratory Cancer Center, the two institutions have a long-standing partnership of conducting patient-focused, translational cancer research that has impacted cancer care in Delaware.

The HFGCCRI and the Wistar Institute Cancer Center are committed to equity, inclusion, fairness, and justice. The Caspar Wistar Bacchieri Disparities Fellows will play an important role supporting a new programmatic line of research in population health science. Priority will be given to research activities that have the potential to build on past successes in reducing cancer disparities and translate into impactful clinical and policy-based interventions.

Caspar Wistar Bacchieri Disparities Fellows will be appointed for a two-year term, with full salary and benefits, and the possibility of extending or being considered for promotion.
