Tenure Track Positions in Cancer Survivorship Research: Associate to Full Professor, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. 

The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s NCI-designated Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the Associate or Full Professor level. We are interested in candidates who wish to be part of a transformative cancer control research program and have research interests and expertise in cancer survivorship. There is particular interest in candidates who are team scientists, highly collaborative and have expertise in one or more of the following areas: symptom and toxicities measurement and management; patient reported outcomes (PROs); technology-supported behavioral and psychosocial interventions; biobehavioral mechanisms in cancer control; electronic health record (EHR), bioinformatics and value-based models of cancer survivorship care; health disparities in specific survivorship subgroups (e.g., LGBT; Hispanics; Elderly); cardiometabolic health in cancer survivors; and/or translational science and dissemination and implementation research. 

 

Sylvester and the Cancer Control research program provide an excellent platform for research and education including a diverse and broad scientific portfolio of cancer survivorship-related studies. These positions fall under the auspices of Sylvester’s Cancer Survivorship and Translational Behavioral Sciences Initiative, which is closely aligned with Sylvester’s Cancer Control research program and led by nationally and internationally recognized leading experts in cancer survivorship research. The cancer control research program provides rich opportunities for collaborative research within the program, and with Sylvester’s Tumor Biology and Cancer Epigenetics research programs. Sylvester’s faculty hold academic appointment across multiple departments across the university. Departmental appointment for these positions will be aligned with the candidate’s interest and academic fit. Candidates should possess a PhD, MD or other doctoral degree in a related behavioral science discipline and have an outstanding record of scholarly publications and a strong history of extramural funding with exceptional promise in cancer survivorship research. Salary and rank will be commensurate with experience and credentials. These are full-time, tenure-track continuing positions. Start date is flexible. 

 

The University of Miami is among the top research universities and academic medical centers in the nation, and one of the largest private employers in South Florida. With more than 16,000 faculty and staff, the University strives for excellence, and is driven by a powerful purpose to transform and impact the lives of its students, patients, members of the community, and people across the globe. The University has been named on Forbes's Best Employers list for two consecutive years and is the only university in Florida to receive this honor. 

 

Applications will be considered until positions are filled. Additional information about the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center can be viewed at (Sylvester; www.sylvester.org).

Postdoctoral Research Training Fellowship in Cancer Survivorship.

The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s NCI-designated Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (Sylvester; www.sylvester.org) and the College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Psychology (psy.miami.edu) are currently accepting applications for two-year postdoctoral fellowship positions in cancer survivorship. The goal of these fellowships is to provide exceptional mentored research and training experiences for its trainees so that they become successful independent leaders in various areas of cancer survivorship research. The overarching goal of the program is to train the next generation of behavioral and biomedical scientists with the necessary skills sets to conduct transformative and impactful research to reduce the burden of cancer in cancer patients and survivors, their families and the South Florida communities we serve. This training program functions under the auspices of Sylvester’s Cancer Survivorship and Translational Behavioral Sciences Initiative, which is closely aligned with Sylvester’s Cancer Control research program and led by nationally and internationally recognized leading experts in cancer survivorship research. The Cancer Control research program provides rich opportunities for collaborative research within the program, and with Sylvester’s Tumor Biology and Cancer Epigenetics

research programs.

 

The postdoctoral training program is seeking trainees with research interests in the following areas that are well-aligned with expertise across Sylvester’s and the Department of Psychology Cancer Survivorship experts:
