National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

Position Description:

Dr. Rachael Stolzenberg-Solomon, Senior Investigator in the National Cancer Institute (NCI)'s Metabolic Epidemiology Branch, in the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, is looking for motivated Post-Doctoral 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:
  1. Molecular epidemiologic studies to investigate biomarkers (including metabolomics) and genetic susceptibility (e.g. GWAS) in prospective studies
  2. Cohort analyses of diet and lifestyle exposures
  3. Studying biologic mechanisms underlying epidemiologic risk factors using biomarkers.

The Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) is a research division of the NCI, program 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.


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.
