We are seeking fellowship-trained faculty who are clinician (MD, DDS, DO) health services researchers interested in conducting trans-disciplinary, translational research addressing cancer prevention and control among diverse populations.

Faculty will also have patient care and clinical teaching opportunities through the Mount Sinai’s clinical departments.
