Postdoctoral Fellowship, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth
The Center for Molecular Epidemiology at the Geisel School of Medicine and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center is seeking applications for a postdoctoral researcher in genetic and molecular epidemiology of cancer. Trainees have the opportunity to work on quantitative research projects integrating clinical, epidemiological, and molecular data generated from biospecimens collected as part of several large clinical trials and population-based studies of cancer and premalignant disease. Ongoing projects include investigations of molecular biomarkers and genetics in relation to metabolic risk factors for cancer. Opportunities also exist to develop new, mentored projects that utilize the Center for Molecular Epidemiology Biorepository and Laboratory resources.
The Norris Cotton Cancer Center is a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center with active Cancer Control and Cancer Epidemiology research programs. The Center for Molecular Epidemiology is a Center of Biomedical Research Excellence funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences that aims to apply state-of-the-art scientific discoveries and technologies to address major health concerns, explore common pathways of disease etiology and progression, and identify early indicators of disease pathogenesis.
Applicants must possess a doctoral degree (PhD, MD, or MD/PhD) with graduate-level training related to the quantitative biomedical sciences, such as epidemiology, biostatistics, bioinformatics, or computational biology. Applicants with doctorates in basic sciences or clinical medicine with strong backgrounds in statistics or statistical programming are also encouraged to apply. Proficiency in R, SAS, or Stata is required, and experience analyzing high-dimensional data is desired. Candidates are appointed for at least 2 years with an opportunity to extend to 3 years pending availability of funds.
Submissions should include a letter describing the background and interests of the applicant, curriculum vitae, and names and contact information of three references. Review of applications will commence immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Materials should be e-mailed to Dr. Michael Passarelli (Michael.N.Passarelli@dartmouth.edu).
