Description of Duties:
Roswell Park Cancer Institute, an NCI-Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo, NY, is committed to the further expansion of its Cancer Genetics program. The Department of Cancer Genetics invites applications for a position equivalent to Associate or Full Professor. Candidates are sought with a strong background in genomic- and epigenomic-based approaches such as next-gen sequencing to identify and characterize cancer-related driver mutations, genes, expression signatures and/or genetic components relating to cancer initiation, progression and/or treatment response. Track record of collaboration with clinicians, pathologists, and clinical geneticists to study the genomics of patient samples and outcomes is a strength. Ideal candidates will be highly collaborative, eager to develop “team science” and involved in translational projects with applications to clinical samples, thereby strengthening the mission of the Cancer Genetics Department, the Genetics Program of the Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Center for Genomic Medicine, and the Institute.
Selection will be based on excellence in research and the potential to maintain an outstanding independent research program, including evidence of peer-reviewed funding and publication. The new recruit will be expected to contribute to the graduate education program and administrative responsibilities at the Institute. We encourage applicants who desire an environment that fosters interaction with a diverse group of scientists and clinicians both within the Institute and at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Laboratory space in a newly opened 300,000 sq ft. Center for Genetics and Pharmacology provides a highly multidisciplinary environment, access to state-of-the-art animal and genomics core facilities, and the opportunity to interact with both research scientists and research-oriented clinicians from several departments.
