Physician-Scientist, Pathology and Cancer Early Detection
Advanced Research Center Collaborative
PORTLAND, OREGON (USA).
An exciting opportunity has been created for an emerging or experienced research physician-scientist to join the Department of Pathology, with membership in the Knight Cancer Institute Cancer Early Detection Advanced Research (CEDAR) Center at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), Portland, OR. The Department of Pathology and CEDAR seek a full-time physician-scientist with a research focus on early detection of lung, pancreas, or breast cancer.
Applicants must be board-certified/board-eligible in Anatomic Pathology and be qualified for unrestricted medical licensure in the state of Oregon. The ideal candidate should show demonstration of grant-funded research and be able to practice clinically in a subspecialized Pathology setting. Candidates should also demonstrate evidence of productivity in an academic setting including a publication record, the ability to work in a collaborative research and clinical environment, strong written and verbal communication skills, and an interest in teaching Pathology residents and fellows.
The Knight Cancer Institute seeks a world without cancer. A pioneer in personalized medicine, the institute is known internationally for its leadership in fighting cancer at the molecular level and exploring the underpinnings of cancer from multiple perspectives, including through multi-scale imaging, molecular biology, the investigation of the tumor micro-environment, and computational biology. World-class researchers and clinicians at the institute work together to translate discoveries into new and better treatments, to bring the latest diagnostic and treatment options to patients, and to establish multi-disciplinary partnerships with foundations, private companies, community providers, and other academic centers to tackle the most intractable problems of cancer. The mission of CEDAR is to detect and stop lethal cancer early by transforming how and when early cancer and precancerous states are detected and treated. Interdisciplinary research, in which investigators from disparate scientific areas and across ranks collaborate to bring unique approaches to the cancer early detection problem, is expected across all CEDAR endeavors.
