Dr. Demetrius Albanes in the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) is looking for a postdoctoral fellow with a strong background in the molecular epidemiology of cancer. DCEG is a leading biomedical institution in the fields of cancer epidemiology and genetics. This fellowship will be based in the Nutritional Epidemiology Branch of DCEG and will be focused on the molecular epidemiology of prostate and other cancers, micronutrients (especially vitamins D, E, and A), vitamin supplementation, and metabolomics. Studies of the biochemistry/metabolites, genetic variants, and biological mechanisms relevant to these factors are being and will be conducted utilizing multifaceted, biologically based approaches to solving some of the urgent questions regarding the nutritional epidemiology of cancer. The postdoctoral fellow will have cancer cohort resources within DCEG, along with genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and other consortium data, available for cutting-edge hypothesis testing and team collaborations. Mechanistic and methodological research opportunities are also available.
Qualifications: Candidates should possess a strong background in epidemiology and biology, and have an interest in prostate cancer. Competitive stipends commensurate with prior education and experience are available. Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.
To apply: See the Division Fellowship Information page for an overview, qualifications, and application details.
