Job Description
Dissemination and Implementation Scientist in Cancer Control and Survivorship
Faculty Position, Dissemination and Implementation Scientist in Cancer Control and Survivorship

We strongly encourage people of color, transgender and non-binary people, sexual minorities, people with disabilities, and women to apply. We welcome everyone to join our department.

The Department of Medical Social Sciences (MSS) and the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center (Lurie Cancer Center) Cancer Control and Survivorship (CCS) Program at Northwestern University are seeking applications for a full-time, non-tenure-eligible Team Scientist at the rank of Associate Professor. Expertise is required in the specific area of development and evaluation of theory-based health interventions delivered using technology (e.g., eHealth, mHealth, behavioral intervention technologies), with an emphasis on interventions relevant to cancer survivorship. Candidates’ areas of interest may include, but are not limited to, innovative use of technology (e.g., use of sensor data, geo-sensing or context-aware approaches, virtual reality, serious games, just-in- time interventions, affective computing), development of interventions for underserved or marginalized populations to reduce health disparities, and human-computer interaction. Candidates should have experience applying theories used in behavioral medicine, psychology, public health, or related disciplines. They should also have experience designing and conducting clinical trials to evaluate interventions. MSS, the Lurie Cancer Center, and the CCS Program provide a unique scientific home for applied researchers who integrate biomedical and social science approaches to improvement of health and health care delivery in cancer survivors across the lifespan.

MSS and the Lurie Cancer Center jointly provide a rich platform for research including a diverse and broad scientific portfolio of cancer-related studies, biostatistical and health informatics cores, expertise in multi-level assessment methods and technology implementation, and collaborative relationships across Northwestern’s biomedical and life sciences campuses. Because an interdisciplinary, collaborative orientation is a defining element of MSS and the Lurie Cancer Center, both provide an ideal home for scholars whose work is collaborative, integrative, and cuts across traditional content areas. The CCS program includes research themes that focus on behavioral and population science research, outcomes measurement, disparities research, quality of care, biobehavioral mechanisms, symptom management, and behavioral interventions across the lifespan. It offers exceptional opportunities for community-based and translational research and collaboration with investigators in the Center for Behavioral Intervention Technologies (CBITS) and the McCormick School of Engineering Department of Computer Sciences, along with their collaborative NIMH ALACRITY Center.

For this Team Scientist position, we are seeking candidates with a strong collaborative orientation and a track record of significant scientific contributions as part of a translational team. Candidates should have a strong publication record and a history of extramural funding as PI and/or co-investigator roles. MSS, the CCS program, and the Lurie Cancer Center have a highly collaborative culture in which multiple investigators have opportunities to work in tandem on large-scale outcomes and team science research. Participation in MSS Departmental training activities and University service are also expected and valued.

The start date is negotiable and the position will remain open until filled.

When applying, please upload a CV and cover letter describing your interest and alignment with the position. All applicants should include in their cover letter a clear statement about their commitment and contribution to diversity and equity initiatives. Also upload this completed list of references form to suggest the names of individuals who could write letters of reference on your behalf.
