Epidemiology of Breast Cancer Postdoctoral Fellowship

Work with Dr. Rose Yang

Xiaohong Rose Yang, Ph.D., M.P.H.

The Integrative Tumor Epidemiology Branch is seeking two applicants with training in epidemiology, molecular epidemiology, genetics/genomics, or a related field to study breast cancer. Projects may include analysis of data from questionnaires and electronic health records, as well as the study of tissue, histologic/radiologic images, and circulating biomarkers to inform breast cancer risk and progression. Various approaches may be used to test hypotheses, including prospective cohorts, consortia, unique clinical databases, registry data, computational pathology, and integrative analyses of genomic (next-generation sequencing, SNP array, RNASeq, methylation) and histologic/radiologic imaging data.

The successful candidates will be mentored to achieve their goals, progressing to greater independence during the fellowship. Learn more about the other advantages of being a DCEG fellow, including our distinctive research environment, mentorship, professional development, compensation and benefits, and commitment to diversity and inclusion.


Individuals must either hold, or expect to soon attain, a doctoral degree in epidemiology, genetics/genomics or related field. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled. Applicants may be U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or foreign nationals (visa requirements apply). 


Submit your CV to the application database so it can be reviewed by investigators across the Division searching for trainees. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled. Applicants may be U.S. citizens, permanent residents; or foreign nationals (visa requirements apply). Candidates are subject to a background investigation.

For more information, contact Rose Yang, Ph.D., M.P.H., senior investigator.
