Tenure-Track Investigator, NCI

Deadline: December 1, 2017

The Endocrine Oncology Branch (EOB), Center for Cancer Research (CCR), National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), is a national leader in research in endocrine neoplasms, in the development of new detection methods and therapies for endocrine cancers, and in identification of inherited endocrine cancer syndromes.  We are seeking a tenure-track investigator in the field of endocrine oncology.  It is anticipated that the investigator will establish an independent translational research program targeted to the study of the cause and pathogenesis, and/or development of new therapeutic strategies for endocrine neoplasms and cancers.  The research program should be able to interface with a strong existing translational and clinical research program.  Potential areas of focus may include, but are not limited to, oncogenesis, pathogenesis of endocrine malignancies, and therapies for endocrine malignancies.  The program can be primarily laboratory-based, clinical, or a combination of the two.

The CCR is the largest intramural component of the NCI.  CCR investigators have access to the Clinical Center, the largest hospital in the world devoted exclusively to clinical research.  EOB was founded in 2012 to bring together researchers in the NCI and other institutes working on endocrine neoplasms. The Branch has many collaborative clinical and laboratory research projects that include studies related to early detection and prognostication based on genomic/genetic studies of endocrine and neuroendocrine tumors, evaluation of new therapeutic targets using preclinical models of endocrine cancers, the clinical utility of advanced imaging modalities for early detection, diagnosis and prognostication, and evaluation of therapeutic agents in early phase clinical trials.  Access to a biospecimen repository is available.  Access to a biospecimen repository is available.
