The Department of Epidemiology, College of Public Health and the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center (HCCC) seek a dedicated and experienced cancer epidemiologist. The successful candidate will play a major role in the HCCC’s population science initiatives with substantial leadership opportunity and research resources in cancer epidemiology and population sciences. We seek an outstanding candidate at the tenure-track associate or full professor level with a strong track record and dedication to population health, contemporary cancer surveillance and preventive or intervention-based research methodologies as well as teaching the next generation of epidemiologists. Activities can include etiological, translational or clinical epidemiologic research, chemoprevention, screening, health disparities, and intervention research.

Candidates should have a PhD or MD degree that includes graduate or post-doctoral training in cancer epidemiology. The successful candidate will be expected to have a vibrant extramurally funded research program; experience teaching both basic and advanced courses in epidemiology; training graduate students and mentoring post-doctoral fellows; and participating in multidisciplinary activities. The successful candidate will have opportunities to shape the cancer population science research agenda, and to collaborate with community and behavioral scientists, clinicians, epidemiologists and molecular scientists in the College of Public Health, the Carver College of Medicine, and the HCCC at the University of Iowa.

The candidate will also have the opportunity to lead the Cancer Epidemiology and Population Sciences Program, one of four formal research programs at the HCCC with 60 members collaborating in a broad range of cancer prevention and control activities. The Program is deeply involved with community outreach and engagement via the Iowa Cancer Consortium, a statewide organization of stakeholders charged with developing and implementing the Iowa Cancer Plan, and via the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network Collaborating Center which is jointly funded by the NCI and CDC. The Department of Epidemiology is the home for the NCI-sponsored Iowa Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) cancer registry and its tissue repositories.
