Job Description:

Full/Part Time/PRN: Day Job

Regular/Temporary: Regular

Schedule: Full-time

The Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center with the Department of Clinical Sciences at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center is seeking multiple scientific investigators to join our dynamic, productive Population Science and Cancer Control Program. We are particularly interested in applicants with innovative, independent, and collaborative research programs in tobacco control, molecular/cancer epidemiology, and cancer care delivery across the cancer control continuum. Applicants should have a doctoral degree in behavioral sciences, biological sciences, bioinformatics, biostatistics, communication, epidemiology, health services, psychology, or public health. Cancer Center Leadership supports considering interested and qualified senior investigators for leadership positions.

The Population Sciences and Cancer Control Program is one of six research programs in the Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, which received NCI designation in 2010 and achieved Comprehensive status in 2015. Its 24 members from diverse disciplines (behavioral sciences, epidemiology, anthropology, bioinformatics, biostatistics, health services/outcomes) receive annual peer-reviewed funding of ~$8 million. Recently, the Program launched a cancer survivorship research initiative to understand and address needs of complex survivors with multiple co-morbidities.

The Department of Clinical Sciences, the academic home for cancer population researchers, includes Divisions of Behavioral and Communication Sciences, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, Community Health Sciences, Epidemiology, and Outcomes and Health Services Research. The Department s 26 highly productive faculty members are assisted by ~60 research staff experienced in primary quantitative and qualitative data collection as well as analysis of big data in national surveillance, administrative claims, geospatial, sequencing, and high-throughput databases.

Population Science members and Department faculty have a robust research portfolio conducting large population-based observational and interventional studies using the comprehensive EMR of our University and public safety-net health. The goal of this faculty recruitment is to expand the positive impact of our research on the large, diverse, and rapidly growing population in our catchment area. Appointment rank will be commensurate with academic accomplishments and experience.

UT Southwestern offers an outstanding collaborative environment for research with world-class basic science and clinical colleagues, excellent benefits, and competitive salaries. Attractive start-up funds are available commensurate with rank and track-record. Through 2021, faculty will be eligible to apply for grants from the Cancer Prevention & Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT), the second-largest cancer research funding agency in the US. CPRIT also provides competitive faculty recruitment awards for investigators new to Texas.

UT Southwestern Medical Center is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Women, minorities, veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

If interested in this position, please apply online and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and professional reference list.

Company Profile
UT Southwestern Medical Center is distinctive for its overall quality and for the strength of its three core missions of education, research, and patient care. These mission components are highly interdependent; each is integral to and enhances the others. The results of basic science, translational, and clinical research inform the patient care we provide; research projects are influenced by the desire to understand the causes of disease and the hope of designing new—and effective—treatments and cures; and our students and trainees are exposed to innovative scientific thinking and clinical expertise, and in turn, stimulate our faculty to remain at the cutting edge of their fields. UT Southwestern is proud of its distinguished record of breakthrough scientific discoveries, outstanding medical education and training, and excellence in patient care. Founded in 1943 as a private medical school by a group of prominent Dallas citizens, it became part of the University of Texas System in 1949, and has evolved over the years to become one of the leading academic medical centers in the country.
