Position Description:

Save lives. Fulfill yours.

At the American Cancer Society, saving lives is our mission. We achieve our mission by drawing on our humanity. Humanity made up of courage, determination, innovation, passion, empathy, and caring. These are the values that give us the advantage over cancer.

Our work is important. And so are the people doing it. The people who work at the American Cancer Society focus their diverse talents on our singular mission: to end the pain and suffering of cancer. It is a calling. And the people who answer it are fulfilled. We value our employees and nearly 2 million volunteers around the globe that have stood with us through the years, and we will not rest until the fight is won. And that day is drawing nearer.

Fellows will design a research program focused on identifying and/or clarifying associations of lifestyle, psychosocial, behavioral, genetic and biologic factors with cancer incidence, mortality, survival or survivorship issues. Fellows will have access to rich research resources including from the Cancer Prevention Studies, the Studies of Cancer Survivors, the Cancer Survivor Transition Study, and the 4C Study. Opportunities exist for research in many areas of cancer including, but not limited to, studies of hematologic and rare cancers, prostate cancer, population genetics, molecular pathological epidemiology, and metabolomics, the causes and consequences of cancer-related disparities, psychosocial (and other) predictors of tobacco smoking or smoking cessation, and cancer survivorship. Each post-doctoral fellow will train under and behavioral and epidemiological scientists in the Society's intramural research department to lead analyses, conduct, publish and present peer-review original research.


1. Analyze data from Cancer Prevention Study cohorts, the Studies of Cancer Survivors, the Cancer Survivor Transition Study, the 4C Study and biospecimen repository as well as other databases to test specific questions or hypotheses concerning causes of various types of cancer.

2. Publish original scientific research in peer-review journals and present at professional meetings.

• Superior analytical, organizational, interpersonal, and oral and written communication skills.

• Ability to identify and prepare a proposal to examine a behavioral or epidemiologic research question.

• Evidence of success in presenting results (oral and/or written) from behavioral or epidemiologic data analysis in local, national or international settings.

• Ability to work independently and collaboratively in a team setting.


• Statistical analysis of data from cohort studies using SAS, R or other statistical programs.

• Familiarity with Certification in biomedical ethics training (CITI) and ability to maintain Human Subjects confidentiality.
