The Center of Emphasis in Cancer at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso Paul L. Foster School of Medicine invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level. We seek individuals with Ph.D., M.D., M.D./Ph.D., or equivalent degrees with a record of accomplishment in basic or translational cancer research. We are particularly interested in individuals who are completing post-doctoral training and are looking for an initial faculty position, but also will consider applicants with up to several years of faculty experience. Ideal candidates should have scientific expertise and interest in one or more of the following areas: cancer development and progression, experimental therapeutics, cancer biomarkers, or cancer genomics and proteomics, particularly as related to breast, colon, liver, cervical, or prostate cancers.

Successful candidates will be expected to contribute to the university’s missions; to develop and maintain rigorous, externally funded research programs; to participate in cancer center activities; to teach and mentor students, fellows, and other trainees; and to be engaged in cancer research activities within the state of Texas and nationally. Faculty with clinical interests in oncology will be eligible for a secondary appointment in another department in the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine.
