The Epidemiology Research Program in the Intramural Research Department at the American Cancer Society is pleased to invite applications for post-doctoral research fellowships in cancer epidemiology. Drawing on the expertise and mentorship of the Society’s epidemiologists, and the resources available from the Cancer Prevention Studies, fellows will design a research program focused on identifying and/or clarifying associations of lifestyle, genetic and biologic factors with cancer incidence, mortality, survival or survivorship. Priority areas of epidemiology research at the American Cancer Society include breast and colorectal cancer, lung cancer and tobacco use, and physical activity, nutrition and obesity.

Opportunities exist for research in other cancer outcomes and exposure areas such as hematologic and rare cancers, population genetics, molecular pathological epidemiology, and metabolomics. In addition, capitalizing on the unique multidisciplinary environment at the American Cancer Society, fellows will be able to translate and communicate the relevance of their findings for cancer prevention to Society staff and volunteers nationwide. The program is designed to equip fellows with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to become independent, yet highly collaborative epidemiologic researchers. The fellowship is located in Atlanta, GA at the American Cancer Society’s Global Headquarters and provides salary support for up to three years. Fellows also will receive funds for research-specific training classes, travel, and laboratory work needed for biospecimen-based analyses.
