Behavioral Scientist in Cancer Prevention and Control Faculty Position Available

Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey (the “Cancer Institute”) and Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School are significantly expanding programmatic efforts in Cancer Prevention and Control. We are seeking a behavioral scientist (Assistant Professor to Full Professor) with expertise in the area of behavioral science. This is a tenure track faculty position. New Jersey is home to more than 8.8 million residents and is one of the most diverse states in the country with regard to race/ethnicity: approximately 42% of residents are Hispanic, Black, Asian, Pacific Islander, or other racial/ethnic minority. The Cancer Institute is the only NCI-designated Cancer Center in the state of New Jersey and houses the SEER registry, which facilitates research. With the ongoing growth of the Cancer Institute and the Rutgers School of Public Health, the Rutgers’ cancer center in Newark, and Barnabas Health System, there is great opportunity for growth.

Resident faculty at the Cancer Institute include: Sharon Manne, Elisa Bandera, Elliot Coups, Katie Devine, Jerod Stapleton, Jennifer Tsui, and XiangLin Tan. Non-resident members of the Cancer Institute include experts in cancer survivorship/primary care systems (Ben Crabtree and Shawna Hudson), tobacco control (Cris Delnevo, Jane Lewis, Marc Steinberg, Michael Steinberg, and Olivia Wackowski), cancer epidemiology (Kitaw Demissie, Adana Llanos, and Nan Stroup), and health outcomes and health disparities (Joel Cantor). There are strong existing collaborations with oncologists at the Cancer Institute as well as a large number of hospitals across the state of New Jersey.
Candidates should possess a doctoral degree in clinical or health psychology or public health, two years post-doctoral training, a publication record, and preferably external federal grant funding.  Rank will be commensurate with qualifications.  A joint appointment in another academic department/School will be supported.
