Position Description: The Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program (EGRP), Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS), National Cancer Institute (NCI), has an opening for a Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) fellowship in population health research focused on cancer patients, survivors, and others. This fellowship opportunity is within EGRP’s Clinical and Translational Epidemiology Branch (CTEB), which plans, develops, directs, coordinates, and evaluates a comprehensive program of epidemiologic research in human populations related to etiologic and genomic factors that influence cancer progression, recurrence, survival, and other treatment outcomes, as well as factors associated with cancer development among individuals with underlying diseases and medical conditions.

This fellowship provides an outstanding opportunity for an individual with a strong interest in evaluation of outcomes of cancer patients. The opportunity will provide the successful candidate the chance to support and contribute to efforts that include the impact of post- diagnosis lifestyle changes, molecularly targeted therapy, post-treatment surveillance, disease recurrence, and treatment effects. Opportunities include working with teams of scientists and public health professionals in a variety of research disciplines from NCI, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other institutions around the country. The trainee will work closely with CTEB staff to support current initiatives and activities, as well as help develop, coordinate, and administer future efforts in emerging areas of scientific focus for the Branch. Opportunities for publication authorship are expected.

The trainee will work collaboratively in a support role with scientific staff in the Branch and other parts of EGRP and DCCPS on projects related to the Branch’s mission. The trainee will support the coordination and management of highly visible projects that may reach across other NCI Divisions and NIH Institutes. Duties will include, but are not limited to, organizing meetings, workshops, and teleconferences; preparing briefing materials, reports, and meeting summaries; performing literature searches, summarizing research findings, and analyzing grant portfolios; developing or updating content for relevant websites; and attending relevant seminars and conferences. The trainee also will be responsible for statistical analyses and scientific writing, and is expected to have knowledge of terminology relating to cancer epidemiology, cancer treatment, and cancer survivorship.

Qualifications: - Masters or doctoral degree in epidemiology, public health, biostatistics, pharmacology, or a related discipline. - A strong interest in cancer, including risk prediction, detection, treatment, and survivorship; clinical and translational epidemiology and public health; and data analysis. - Experience reviewing, analyzing, and summarizing scientific literature; managing and analyzing epidemiologic and other data; scientific writing; and working on scientific teams. - Excellent organizational, interpersonal, and time management skills. - Excellent oral and written communication skills. - Knowledge of terminology relating to cancer epidemiology, cancer treatment, and cancer survivorship. - The ability to work independently and on teams. - Applicant must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
