Job Description

The H.

Applicants with research portfolios in all areas relevant to cancer epidemiology spanning the continuum from cancer risk to interception and early detection, to cancer outcomes are encouraged to apply.

Moffitt’s Department of Cancer Epidemiology is home to 18 full-time and cancer center-affiliated faculty members engaged in high-impact scholarly activities spanning chemoprevention, nutrition, immunology, infection oncology, radiomics, screening and early detection, genetics/genomics, and personalized medicine covering diverse tumor types. Cancer Epidemiology faculty strive to translate research findings to inform advances in clinical/ translational medicine and public health practice. With a current combined research portfolio of over $8M, faculty members draw upon Moffitt’s wealth of clinical and scientific expertise across a spectrum of oncology-related disciplines, an expansive health data warehouse of clinical and outcome data for more than 600,000 patients, and an institutional biobank encompassing 130,000 patients, along with research centers of excellence, and outstanding shared resources. Since 2011, the Cancer Epidemiology program has received the highest possible rating of Exceptional on each renewal of Moffitt’s P30 Cancer Center Support Grant, now under leadership of Dr. John Cleveland.
