Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is one of the world’s premier cancer centers, committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. The blending of research with patient care is at the heart of everything we do. The institution is a comprehensive cancer center whose purposes are the treatment and control of cancer, the advancement of biomedical knowledge through laboratory and clinical research, and the training of scientists, physicians and other health care workers.

The MSK environment encourages and provides unparalleled opportunities for fostering multi-disciplinary collaborations with clinicians, geneticists, pathologists, biostatisticians, cancer biologists and others involved in cancer research as well as patient care. Our large patient population coupled with the extensive core facilities and distinguished research tradition provides exciting opportunities and a dynamic environment for the creation of an independent research program in epidemiology. Unique features of the institution include access to considerable numbers of rare cancer types, patients with double malignancies or other known genetic syndromes, rapid availability of large populations of patients with more common types of cancer and access to somatic genotyping of >40,000 cases profiled with the MSK-IMPACT panel. There are also numerous opportunities to build upon and expand existing on-going epidemiologic investigations. Our ideal candidate will take advantage of these institutional opportunities. MSKCC is an equal opportunity employer with very generous compensation and comprehensive benefits packages that make working in a major urban environment affordable.

The ideal candidate should have:

  • Candidates at all levels of experience are encouraged to apply, with the appointment at an appropriate academic rank. Applicants should hold a PhD or an MD with post-doctoral research training.
  • We seek a colleague who will build a program of independent research in cancer epidemiology in a multidisciplinary collaborative environment located in a major academic cancer center.
