Staff Scientist DCEG-MEB

National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, Maryland

Position Description:

The Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG), National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), is recruiting a Staff Scientist in the Metabolic Epidemiology Branch (MEB).

MEB conducts interdisciplinary research to understand the role of diet, energy balance, hormones, tobacco, and other exposures in causing and preventing cancer. MEB researchers study how these exposures relate to a broad variety of cancers with researchers focusing on breast, colon, endometrium, esophagus, liver, stomach, ovary, pancreas, and prostate. MEB researchers use traditional epidemiological methods combined with a variety of molecular methods including genomic analysis, metabolomics, microbiomics, and molecular pathology. The overarching mission of MEB is to conduct collaborative high-impact epidemiological research on metabolic and lifestyle causes of cancer that will guide prevention strategies worldwide.

The Staff Scientist, working under the direction of a Senior Investigator within the MEB, will have responsibilities related to all aspects of MEB's breast cancer research program, as well as other related projects. Specific duties will include assisting with study design (developing protocols, questionnaires, specimen handling procedures), management (data coding and cleaning, specimen tracking, human subjects' approvals), statistical analysis, and preparation of reports for presentation or publication. Some travel may be required.

Qualifications:

The successful candidate must hold a doctoral degree or equivalent in a relevant discipline (e.g., epidemiology, biostatistics, mathematics or public health). Experience in applying bioinformatics analyses to high dimensional molecular epidemiologic data would be an asset. The research program includes biologic specimens, digital pathology and medical imaging data; thus, training or experience working with biospecimens and digital imaging data is an asset. The position requires organizational abilities, attention to detail, initiative, and an aptitude for multi-tasking. The ability to communicate effectively in speech and in writing is essential, as demonstrated in presentations and publications. Salary is commensurate with experience.

To Apply:

Interested individuals should send a cover letter and curriculum vitae to Ms. Jennifer Connor as detailed below. After initial review, additional materials may be requested from select candidates.
