Molecular Epidemiology of Cancer
The Cancer Epidemiology Program of Moffitt Cancer Center invites applications to its Post-Doctoral Training Program in Molecular Epidemiology of Cancer. This interdisciplinary training program is designed to prepare fellows for careers as independent investigators engaged in cancer epidemiological research that incorporates biomarkers identified at the molecular, biochemical, or -omic level. The two year program combines a specialized curriculum with research experience. Mentoring will be provided by teams of experienced faculty from a variety of epidemiology-related disciplines, including cancer epidemiology, statistical genetics, cancer genetics, bioinformatics and clinical specialties spanning diverse areas of research interests and cancer sites.
Applicants must have a terminal degree in epidemiology, nursing, public health, medicine or related discipline. Given the program’s focus in molecular epidemiology it is anticipated that most candidates will have some previous training in epidemiology and/or biostatistics. Stipends and benefits are highly competitive. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until our two open positions for the current academic year are filled. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. Individuals on temporary visas are not eligible.
