The Georgetown University Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center and School of Medicine are pleased to announce multiple opportunities for investigators in cancer prevention and control research. These faculty positions will be appointed in the interdisciplinary Department of Oncology, with membership in and the possibility of co-leadership of the Cancer Prevention and Control Program. Appointments are full-time tenure line, and accompanied by significant financial resources to support faculty research.

Georgetown University Medical Center is an academic health sciences center in Washington, DC, and serves a broad range of medical and biomedical graduate education and training activities, clinical and translational sciences, and patient care with MedStar Health. In addition to the medical school, there is a school of nursing and health studies, and schools of law, public policy, business, arts and sciences, and international affairs.

The Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center is an NCI-designated Consortium Comprehensive Cancer Center, with >125 members conducting cutting-edge research and clinical trials across the region, nationally, and internationally. With campuses in both Washington, DC and Bergen County, NJ, the cancer center spans a highly diverse catchment area and leads groundbreaking discoveries in molecular oncology, experimental therapeutics, breast cancer research, hematologic malignancies, and cancer population sciences. Combined, its research partners have access to the largest clinical network in the mid-Atlantic region. In addition, the cancer center offers a full range of shared resources to faculty.

Successful candidates will have a doctoral degree in any relevant area of public health, and/or a medical or professional clinical research doctorate. Applicants are required to have a strong track record of peer-reviewed funding and publications relevant to cancer, and to currently hold federal support that is cancer-focused. The Cancer Prevention and Control Program has three overarching and interrelated foci: 1) identifying novel cancer risk factors and biomarkers, 2) optimizing prevention and screening efforts, and, 3) improving outcomes of cancer treatment and survivorship. Cross-cutting themes include promoting cancer health equity, translating genomics to the broader public, the use of simulation modeling to inform cancer policy, and cancer and human development. A federally-funded center on tobacco product regulation is co-located in the program, along with clinical research efforts in the treatment of nicotine dependence among patients with cancer.

Expertise in cancer biomarkers, epidemiology, social and behavioral sciences, health services research, outcomes and symptom management, public health genomics, disparities, survivorship, healthy aging, and implementation science is sought, along with others. All applicants will be carefully screened and considered at Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor levels.
