The Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center is hiring faculty in the Cancer Prevention and Control Program (CPC). Appointments are tenure-line and will be considered at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor levels. Appointments include a competitive package of resources commensurate with level and opportunities for additional faculty recruitments and leadership.
The CPC Program has three overarching aims: 1) identifying novel cancer risk factors and biomarkers, 2) optimizing prevention and screening efforts, and, 3) improving outcomes of cancer treatment and survivorship. Cross-cutting themes include cancer health equity, translating genomics to the broader public, simulation modeling to inform cancer policy, and cancer and aging. A federally-funded center on tobacco product regulation is co-located in the program. In addition, program faculty hold key instructional and leadership roles across Georgetown University.
