Job Details

Mayo Clinic in Florida is seeking a breast cancer investigator (PhD, MD/PhD, or MD) to join the Department of Cancer Biology for a newly-created, benefactor-funded position at the Associate or Full Professor level.

Ideal candidates will have a strong interest and experience in leading clinical, translational, and/or basic science research in breast cancer disparities, a track record of publication in breast cancer research, and success in securing and maintaining extramural funding. The candidate selected for this position will be expected to build strong collaborative relationships with clinicians and research teams and partner with colleagues in the clinical practice. A competitive startup package and dedicated laboratory space will be provided.

The Department of Cancer Biology plays a key role in Mayo Clinic’s mission by engaging in nationally and internationally recognized biomedical research in cancers in the brain, breast, liver, and pancreas; translating key findings to the clinic; and training future generations of biomedical researchers through Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. The breast cancer team in Florida is known for its extensive involvement in the preclinical and clinical development of new breast cancer therapies as well as the identification and translation of cancer biomarkers. They are active participants in the NCI Specialized Program in Research Excellence (SPORE) grant, the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology, and the NCI Experimental Therapeutics-Clinical Trials Network (ET-CTN).

The Mayo Clinic in Florida campus spans 400 acres in a suburban setting, and is currently undergoing an extensive expansion plan, which is adding more than 300,000 square feet (28,000 m2) of space and growth of hundreds of staff positions and 100 physicians. Three `newly constructed buildings provide an integrated service for complex cancers with space for neurologic and neurosurgical care, a lung restoration center that will allow for more transplantations, and a positron emission tomography (PET) radiochemistry facility with an on-site cyclotron. The expansion will also offer a particle therapy facility, of which there are only a few dozen in the United States, and the first carbon ion radiotherapy facility in North America. Mayo Clinic Florida is home to outstanding, internationally recognized physicians and scientists who collaborate across the full spectrum of cancer research, from basic biology to treatment, as they seek ways to reduce the burden of cancer.
