FACULTY POSITIONS IN PARADISE
Full Professor and Assistant/Associate Professors
The Cancer Research Center of Hawaii (CRCH), an NCI-designated cancer center, is embarking on a major expansion of its Prevention and Control research program. With dedicated funding from the State of Hawai'i through a tax on cigarette sales, the Center is constructing a state-of-the art 320,000 sq.ft. research and clinical care facility on the Honolulu waterfront. Thus, we are recruiting multiple tenure-track faculty positions at the Full, Associate, and Assistant Professor levels.
CRCH has extensive resources to support a wide range of population research investigations including a statewide SEER cancer registry, a Cancer Information Service outreach program, genomics and biochemical assay laboratories, nutritional assessment, biostatistics support, epidemiological cohort studies, and a Minority-Based Community Clinical Oncology Program. For more information about CRCH please see our website at www.crch.org
FULL PROFESSOR POSITION TENURABLE
The successful candidate will be expected to develop his/her own extramurally supported program of behavioral research related to cancer prevention, detection and control, which includes establishing new intra- and inter-programmatic research projects with faculty from CRCH programs and colleagues from other University schools/departments (e.g., School of Medicine). Program leadership will be considered for applicants with appropriate credentials.
