The University of Southern California (USC), founded in 1880, is the largest private employer in the City of Los Angeles. As an employee of USC, you will be a part of a world-class research university and a member of the “Trojan Family,” which is comprised of the faculty, students and staff that make the university what it is.
The Department of Preventive Medicine of the University of Southern California invites applications for a clinical track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in biostatistics. A suitable candidate is required to hold a PhD in biostatistics, or a related field; additional post-doctoral training would be an asset but is not essential. Candidates should have a demonstrated track record of methodological and applied interdisciplinary research, and interest in working with clinical and basic science investigators focused on investigations in children and young adults with cancer.
The successful applicant will devote their effort to biostatistical and research design functions of the Children's Oncology Group (COG). Major clinical and translational research efforts at COG involve investigations into the epidemiology, biology, treatment and late adverse outcomes associated with cancers of children and young adults. Through COG, the successful applicant will have the opportunity to interact with a large network of clinical investigators, basic scientists, epidemiologists and statisticians working in childhood cancer research.
Potential candidates are encouraged to submit their applications (along with current CV, statement of research interests, and two or more letters of recommendation) to: Todd Alonzo, PhD, Professor of Research, University of Southern California, Children's Oncology Group, 222 East Huntington Dr., Suite 100, Monrovia, CA 91016, or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
