Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center: Tenure Track Faculty Position in Cancer Survivorship

The Cancer Prevention and Control (CPC) Program of the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center is seeking applicants for a tenure-track position focused on cancer survivorship. This position provides a unique opportunity to lead a new, Cancer Center-wide strategic initiative to expand survivorship research. This initiative provides opportunities in clinical and community-based research, and in collaboration with our emerging research consortium partners at the John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center. As such, there are substantial institutional resources available as part of this recruitment.

The Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, the only NCI-designated cancer center in the nation’s capital, serves a diverse patient population through its large regional network of academic and community medical centers. The highly-rated CPC Program includes 35 faculty members engaged in a wide range of NIH-funded clinical, epidemiologic, behavioral, and health services research in cancer. The Cancer Center’s position within Georgetown University provides numerous opportunities for collaboration with faculty in the School of Medicine, School of Nursing and Health Studies, College of Arts and Sciences, Law Center, and the McCourt School of Public Policy. Our location in Washington, DC provides unique access to additional opportunities to collaborate with National Institutes of Health faculty, policy makers on Capitol Hill, and faculty at numerous local universities. Cancer Center shared resources include biostatistics and bioinformatics, participant recruitment, database development and management, clinical research management, genetics/genomics, and numerous biomedical resources.

Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in any population science discipline (e.g., epidemiology, behavioral science, health services, medicine, nursing) with a strong track record of research achievements. The faculty rank for this position is open but is expected to range from advanced Assistant Professor to Full Professor. The qualified candidate will have a well-established portfolio of cancer survivorship research, with strong evidence of collaboration, history of R01 funding, and academic leadership potential. The position includes a generous start-up package with the potential to recruit additional cancer survivorship research faculty.
