The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Gynecologic Oncology, and Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah Health seek a full-time Assistant, Associate or Full Professor with doctoral training in epidemiology, health services research, public health, genetics, survivorship, health disparities, clinical trials, recreation therapy, or a related field with a cancer focus. The successful candidate, utilizing the outstanding research infrastructure of HCI and the Department, will work with faculty and trainees at all levels to develop, conduct, and disseminate the findings of research projects.
We seek a highly motivated leader and relationship-builder with experience working in either an academic and/or a nonprofit research environment. The ability to develop several research projects simultaneously, and successfully collaborate across the University campus and beyond is essential. Applicants are expected to hold a PhD (or equivalent), have received appropriate postdoctoral training, and have a track record of impact and research productivity. Applicants should additionally have a strong publication history, a proven record of independent extramural funding and innovative research. HCI particularly encourages and welcomes applications from scientists across the continuum of cancer research. Highly competitive recruitment packages are available with appointment and rank in an academic department at the University of Utah determined by the applicants’ qualifications.
The University and HCI are home to exceptional shared resources, including the Utah Population Database, with more than 16 million records linking genealogies, health records, and vital statistics. Using these data, researchers have identified several major cancer-causing genes, including the genes responsible for melanoma, colon and breast cancer, and paraganglioma. Our integrated health system and our participation in the ORIEN network of leading cancer centers provide superb resources for multidisciplinary collaborations in translational/clinical epidemiology, cancer biostatistics, research design and genomics/metabolomics/proteomics, including a comprehensive biospecimen repository. HCI and University of Utah Health provide access to state-of-the-art equipment and services through exceptional Core Facilities (see www.cores.utah.edu) that enhance both discovery and translational science.
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology houses the Obstetrics and Gynecology Research Network (OGRN), that is freely available to all Department faculty and trainees. The OGRN provides full-service research infrastructure including pre-award (IRB/compliance, statistics, grant preparation/submission) and post-award (data and biospecimen management, financial management, research personnel). The OGRNprovides support services for the 20+ research personnel working on internally and externally funded research projects across all Divisions in the Department. In addition, OGRN has decades of experience working with other research groups both across the University of Utah and beyond.
