Faculty Position at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey
Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey invites candidates to apply for a tenure-track faculty position in behavioral science, oncology care delivery, cancer outcomes, and/or cancer disparities research with demonstrated academic track record of publications and currently active funding. Academic rank is open and is commensurate with qualifications and experience. A joint appointment in another academic department/School will be supported.
The successful candidate will be joining the Population Science Section, Cancer Prevention and Control Program, at the Cancer Institute.

There are also opportunities to be involved in several ongoing studies and to participate in research consortia. In addition, the Cancer Institute has four (4) shared resources available to faculty; 1) biostatistics, 2) data management services via DatStat, 3) a bio-specimen repository, and; 4) access to ORIEN (Oncology Research Information Exchange Network), a shared resource for precision oncology data for epidemiology studies.
The successful applicant will be expected to maintain an innovative, independent, collaborative and extramurally-funded research program. Candidates should possess a doctoral degree in behavioral science or health-related profession with a strong publication record.
