Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center (RPCCC), an NCI-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo, NY, invites applications for faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level in the Genitourinary Oncology Research Center (GU-ORC).

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, the nation’s first cancer center founded in 1898, has made fundamental contributions to reducing the burden of cancer and has successfully maintained a leadership role in setting national standards for cancer care, research, and education. This multi-disciplinary research environment provides opportunities to interact with scientists and clinicians from numerous programs and departments, and the ability to conduct patient-oriented translational research in collaboration with clinicians. Roswell Park faculty have access to shared resources enabling application of state-of-the-art technology and unique clinical specimens to their research.

The mission of GU-ORC is to foster highly collaborative research that accelerates the understanding of GU cancers and their treatment. GU-ORC is based in the Department of Urology to foster close interaction between practicing physicians and laboratory scientists, facilitating clinical translation. GU-ORC currently consists of more than 30 faculty with multidisciplinary interests in studying the cellular, genetic, epigenetic, metabolic, immunologic, ancestral, and behavioral factors underlying GU cancer development, progression, and therapy resistance.

GU-ORC is seeking to expand the scope of its laboratory based scientific research in areas broadly relevant to GU cancers. This may include relevant areas of fundamental cancer biology, genomics technology development applicable to the study of GU cancers, creation and use of pre-clinical GU cancer models, novel approaches for analyzing GU cancer clinical specimens, and translation of novel research discoveries to clinical application.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. or comparable degree in biomedical research and/or clinical science. Ideal candidates for this position will have strong potential to develop an extramurally funded research program. A commitment to graduate-level mentoring, and teaching is expected. This position requires a commitment to the scientific and clinical activities in the GU-ORC as well as Roswell Park Cancer Center Support Grant programmatic activities.

Salary range is $114,336 - $138,408 which includes a comprehensive benefits package.
