Senior Faculty Position in Behavioral & Psychosocial Oncology
The Department of Medical Social Sciences (MSS) and the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center (RHLCCC) at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine (FSM) seek an outstanding senior scientist to lead the RHLCC Cancer Control and Survivorship Program of this NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center. Candidates should be recognized as national/international leaders in their fields, have successful track records of scholarly production with recognizable and significant impact, and excellent extramural funding histories including National Institutes of Health, and ideally the National Cancer Institute. As program leader, the successful candidate will interact with basic and clinical programs of the cancer center and the University. The cancer control and survivorship program is one of eight population science programs of the cancer center, and one of two in the Division Population Sciences. In 2018, the scientific merit of the cancer center was rated as exceptional. The cancer center is essential to Northwestern Medicine's mission, and is one of Northwestern University's marquis cross-cutting entities. This senior faculty position is based in the interdisciplinary Department of Medical Social Sciences (MSS). We seek a candidate with an exemplary track record of scholarship and leadership in cancer control research. Of special interest are scientists with a focus on quality of life and its promotion in cancer survivors and/or biobehavioral oncology. Social or behavioral science methodologic expertise and mentoring are required (and a track record of translational research) is preferred. A critical consideration will be the extent to which the candidates' focus is synergistic with ongoing Departmental research and culture of collaboration, including energetic engagement in large-scale team science research. The ideal candidate will lead a research program which aligns with, and complements, one or more of MSS’ scientific concentration hubs: Outcomes and Measurement Science, Lifespan Health Promotion, Health Equity and Mechanisms of Health and Disease. Candidates will have an MD and/or PhD in a relevant field and experience in research. The candidate will serve as a leader of the Cancer Control and Survivorship Program. This is a continuing full time position at the tenured or tenure-eligible senior faculty rank with a competitive negotiable salary and excellent benefits. The start date is negotiable and the position will remain open until filled.
