Behavioral Scientist at Fred Hutch Institute for Cancer Outcomes Research [Open Until Filled]

Sep 13,2017 | Consortium staff Job Opportunities

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is recruiting a full-time behavioral scientist at the Assistant/Associate/Full Member level (equivalent to Assistant/Associate/Full Professor) in Seattle, Washington. The position is based at the Hutchinson Institute for Cancer Outcomes Research (HICOR), housed in the Cancer Prevention Program within the Public Health Sciences Division of Fred Hutch. An affiliate faculty appointment in the appropriate department at the University of Washington is negotiable. HICOR faculty conduct retrospective and prospective research in comparative effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, quality of care, health care delivery, health outcomes, and health policy related to early detection and treatment of cancer.

Candidates should have advanced training with a PhD or equivalent degree as well as postdoctoral research experience. Relevant training and experience can come from a number of disciplines—examples include psychology, sociology, decision sciences, behavioral economics, organizational behavior, implementation science, or other related disciplines. Experience with testing behavior change interventions within healthcare settings, including technology-delivered interventions, would be especially welcomed.

The ideal candidate will have expertise in behavioral aspects of dissemination and implementation research and interest in applying those skills to the area of cancer care delivery research. The successful candidate will collaborate and lead in designing, testing, disseminating, and implementing interventions to change health behavior in clinical and organizational settings. As part of the larger Cancer Prevention Program, HICOR faculty regularly team up with behavioral scientists, epidemiologists and statisticians in program. The successful candidate will have access to mentoring by senior faculty with broad expertise in the program and the division more broadly.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
