Moffitt Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center on the campus of the University of South Florida (USF) in Tampa, is seeking to recruit three new faculty members to join the Health Outcomes and Behavior Program.
We have opportunities for a Program Co-Leader (associate or senior rank) and two open rank members; one to focus on patient-reported outcomes and the other with research interests that complement or enhance our strengths in behavioral science and outcomes research.
The HOB Program comprises up to 42 full-time faculty members from Moffitt and USF. The aims of the program encompass research in the areas of (1) prevention and early detection (including tobacco use); (2) quality of life of patients and survivors; (3) health outcomes and cancer care delivery; and (4) cancer-related health disparities.
Program Co-Leader for Health Outcomes and Behavior - The Program Co-Leader will be a member of the scientific leadership team at Moffitt, with shared responsibility for guiding and facilitating research within the program as well as building collaborations with other programs and institutions. Program Co-Leaders also prepare the relevant sections of the Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) and represent the Program at the CCSG site visit. We will give preference to candidates who have demonstrated prior leadership and mentoring skills and have engaged in successful collaborative, multidisciplinary research. Questions regarding the position should be directed to: Thomas Brandon, Ph.D., Chair and Program Leader, Health Outcomes and Behavior (Thomas.Brandon@Moffitt.org).
Patient Reported Outcomes Faculty (Open Rank) - We welcome applicants with expertise in patient-reported outcomes, symptom management, and quality of life to join several HOB faculty members already working in this area. Potential areas of interest include biobehavioral oncology (e.g., psychoneuroimmunology), mHealth interventions, novel therapeutics, and end of life care. Questions regarding the position should be directed to: Heather Jim, PhD, Search Committee Chair, Department of Health Outcomes and Behavior (Heather.Jim@Moffitt.org).
Health Outcomes and Behavior Faculty - We welcome applicants with any relevant area of research, but we are particularly interested in expanding our research in (1) cancer care delivery or implementation science, to capitalize upon the resources available at the Center, and (2) tobacco research, to complement existing research in this area. Questions regarding the position should be directed to: David Drobes, PhD, Search Committee Chair, Department of Health Outcomes and Behavior (David.Drobes@moffitt.org).
Successful candidates must hold a doctorate degree and have relevant research training and experience. We seek academic researchers who can contribute immediately, as evidenced by a history of peer-reviewed funding and publication. Academic rank beyond that of Assistant Member/Assistant Professor will be commensurate with experience and qualifications. The position is tenure-earning. Salary and start-up funds are highly competitive.
Tampa was recently named an “urban gem” and the “Best City in the Southeast” by Money magazine. Aside from the sunshine, beaches, and year-round outdoor recreation associated with the Gulf Coast of Florida, Tampa is a thriving metropolitan city with unique cultural attractions, low cost of living, and a high quality of life. Moffitt faculty members typically hold appointments in the Department of Oncologic Sciences or other departments at the university. Moffitt-based faculty members focus their efforts on research, with minimal expectations for formal teaching.
