Tobacco Control Researcher
Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth-Norris Cotton Cancer Center
The Norris Cotton Cancer Center, an NCI-funded Comprehensive Cancer Center at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth seeks to expand its capacity to conduct tobacco control and tobacco regulatory research. We welcome applications for a full-time tenured or tenure-eligible faculty appointment in the Cancer Control Research Program. As an expansion of our capacity to conduct tobacco research we seek a scientist with a focus on health and behavioral outcomes among tobacco users. Outcomes of interest include quitting and relapse, experimentation among young adults, health consequences of tobacco use, use of reduced harm tobacco products, use of multiple products, communications about lung cancer screening and screening outcomes.
We have a broad research group interested in expanding the scope of studies we undertake and will welcome interviews with applicants that have an MD, PhD and/or ScD with backgrounds in psychology, psychiatry, communications, epidemiology, tobacco policy, public health, economics, decision science, and law at the assistant, associate or professor levels. Young investigators should be fellowship trained or the equivalent and likely candidates for K funding support.
Mid-career and senior investigators should have a strong track record of funding from NIH and other sources and a willingness to engage in tobacco regulatory research sponsored by the Food and Drug Administration. Applicants will be evaluated based on their publications, ability to maintain an externally funded research program, and the degree to which their research synergizes with other members of the Cancer Center. Our research group has a strong commitment to registry research and aims to develop clinical registries for smokers and those undergoing lung cancer screening. These registries may form the basis for communications research on how to better support quitting and how to effectively engage eligible smokers in lung cancer screening.
Appointments will be made in a scientifically appropriate academic department at the Geisel School of Medicine at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor and will be expected to participate in teaching and mentoring of graduate and medical students. Successful candidates will receive competitive salaries and start-up packages.
Curriculum vitae, including extramural grant support, statements for current research and future research directions, and contact information for at least 3 references should be sent in PDF format to: Cancer.Control.Search@Dartmouth.edu.
Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Dartmouth is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and members of minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
Depending on the nature of the position, the position may be offered by either Dartmouth-Hitchcock or The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. If you are not sure which entity is offering the position, be sure to check the job listings for both.
