The Cancer Epidemiology Program of the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, Inc. invites applications to its T32 Post-Doctoral Training Program in Molecular Epidemiology of Cancer. This NCI-supported interdisciplinary training program is designed to prepare fellows for careers as independent investigators engaged in cancer epidemiological research that incorporates biomarkers identified at the molecular, biochemical, or -omic level. The two year program combines a specialized curriculum (formal didactic training and one-on-one interactions with mentors) with research experience (participation in funded studies under the guidance of an experienced investigator).
Mentoring will be provided by a team of experienced faculty from a variety of disciplines, including cancer epidemiology, virology, immunology, cancer genetics, and quantitative sciences. Primary responsibilities include data analysis and manuscript preparation, working with an ongoing epidemiologic cohort study of cutaneous viral infections, ultraviolet radiation exposure, immune function and development of keratinocyte carcinomas.
Applicants must have a terminal degree in epidemiology, nursing, public health, medicine or related discipline. Given the program's focus in molecular epidemiology, it is anticipated that most candidates will have some previous training in epidemiology, and a background in immunology is preferred. Stipends and benefits are highly competitive. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until our open positions for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 academic years are filled. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. Individuals on temporary visas are not eligible.
