Tenure-Track Investigator Radiation Epidemiology Branch – NIH
12 November 2020
The Radiation Epidemiology Branch (REB), Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG), National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is recruiting a tenure-track investigator to develop an independent research program focused on the risk of new malignancies developing in cancer survivors.
DCEG is the world’s most comprehensive cancer epidemiology research group. Its distinguished epidemiologists, geneticists, and biostatisticians conduct population and multidisciplinary research to discover the genetic and environmental determinants of cancer and new approaches to cancer prevention. Within DCEG, REB conducts a broad-based research program with a three-fold research mission: to characterize and quantify the carcinogenic effects of radiation; to improve our understanding of molecular mechanisms of radiation carcinogenesis; and to address issues of public concern about radiation exposure. One focus of the program is quantifying risks among cancer survivors for developing new malignancies, with an emphasis on cancer risks following therapeutic medical radiation exposures. Investigations conducted by REB include both pediatric and adult cancer survivors and involve interdisciplinary approaches to assessing subsequent malignancy risk. REB studies are a major source of data used to assess risks and benefits of current cancer treatment approaches and to guide the development of long-term clinical follow-up guidelines for cancer survivors.
