Discovering the causes of cancer and the means of prevention

Epidemiology of Pancreatic Cancer Postdoctoral or Predoctoral Fellowship

Work with Dr. Rachael Stolzenberg-Solomon

Rachael Stolzenberg-Solomon, Ph.D., M.P.H., R.D.

Rachael Stolzenberg-Solomon, Ph.D., M.P.H., R.D., senior investigator in the Metabolic Epidemiology Branch of the NCI Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, is looking for a motivated postdoctoral or predoctoral fellow who is interested in clarifying the etiology of pancreatic cancer through various study design and molecular approaches, as well as biomarker and metabolic studies particularly related to nutritional exposures.

Potential opportunities include:

  • Molecular epidemiologic studies to investigate biomarkers (including metabolomics) and genetic susceptibility (e.g. GWAS) in prospective studies
  • Cohort analyses of diet and lifestyle exposures
  • Studying biologic mechanisms underlying epidemiologic risk factors using biomarkers.

The Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) is a research division of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), one of the focal points for cancer research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Division is the world’s most comprehensive cancer epidemiology research group. Its renowned epidemiologists, geneticists, and biostatisticians conduct population and multidisciplinary research to discover the genetic and environmental determinants of cancer and new approaches to cancer prevention. 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.


Applicants must have a doctoral degree or be enrolled in a graduate degree program in epidemiology, nutrition or related field. Individuals with training in epidemiologic methods and statistics, strong quantitative skills, and an understanding of biological and molecular processes and population genetics are encouraged to apply. Good writing skills are also desirable.


Please send a CV and cover letter (or any questions) via email to Dr. Rachael Stolzenberg-Solomon.

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.
