Roswell Park Cancer Institute

Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI), an NCI-Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo, NY, is seeking to expand research in cancer genomics in order to further develop personalized cancer medicine. RPCI is committed to developing a world-class cancer genetics and genomics program that will enhance our understanding of the molecular genetic mechanisms of cancer; advance and accelerate genomics science and technology development; and efficiently translate laboratory research in cancer genetics and genomics to improve cancer prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment. To achieve this goal, we invite applications for the position of Associate or Full Professor of Oncology in the Department of Cancer Genetics and Genomics. Strong applicants will be considered for the position of Co-Leader of the Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) Genetics and Genomics Program.

Candidates should have a proven track record of peer-reviewed funding in the field of cancer genetics and genomics. The ideal candidate will have scientific achievement in research utilizing genomic approaches to identify and characterize cancer driver genes, expression signatures and/or genetic components relating to cancer initiation, progression or treatment response. Candidates should be nationally recognized for scholarly activity, and demonstrate exceptional leadership and administrative skills. The successful candidate will be highly collaborative, eager to develop team science, and involved in translational research with applications to clinical samples, thereby strengthening the translational genomics theme of the CCSG Genetics and Genomics Program. In addition to a distinguished record of scientific achievement, the applicant must also be committed to the education and mentorship of students, post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty.

Candidates must have a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D.; a record of scholarly activity resulting in publication in high-impact journals; and peer- reviewed, cancer-related funding consistent with an appointment at the Associate or Full Professor rank. We strongly encourage applications from physician-scientists, and will arrange complementary secondary or joint appointments in appropriate clinical departments.

Roswell Park Cancer Institute is America’s first cancer center founded in 1898 by Dr. Roswell Park. The mission of the Roswell Park Cancer Institute is to provide total care to cancer patients, conduct research into the cause, treatment and prevention of cancer, and to educate the public and the next generation of researchers who study and treat cancer. Over its long history, Roswell Park Cancer Institute has made fundamental contributions to reducing the cancer burden and has successfully maintained an exemplary leadership role in setting national standards for cancer care, research and education. Notably, the Institute has been continuously funded as an NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center for over 40 years, since the inception of this prestigious program. The campus spans 25 acres in downtown Buffalo and consists of 15 buildings with about 1.6 million square feet of space. A dedicated cancer hospital building, completed in 1998, houses a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment center. The Institute has recently opened a new outpatient Clinical Sciences Center and is renovating existing education and research space to support its future growth and expansion.
