- Full Time
The Urologic Oncology Branch (UOB), Center for Cancer Research (CCR), a division of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), announces a call for applications for Assistant or Associate Research Physician, an exciting opportunity intended for physicians with an interest in translating bench-to-bedside research to clinical trials, especially focused on genitourinary malignancies.
The Urologic Oncology Branch conducts clinical and basic research designed to develop better methods for detecting, preventing, and treating patients with kidney cancer, prostate cancer and bladder cancer. We evaluate and manage patients with non-inherited as well as inherited forms of kidney cancer. The Branch also has an expanding prostate cancer program. Patients with known or suspected localized and locally advanced prostate cancer undergo advanced MRI imaging followed by fusion image-guided biopsy to diagnose and characterize the cancer. They may then be managed with robotic surgery or be followed with active surveillance and intermittent imaging. In addition, we have a growing program in genomics and targeted therapy for bladder cancer patients, including therapy that targets EGFR, FGFR3 and other mutated bladder cancer genes.
The successful candidate's key skills include: familiarity with biomarker-driven study design, protocol development and patient-oriented research; knowledge related to the ethical and regulatory issues of conducting clinical research involving human subjects; experience with the collection and management of research data; and interest in community outreach and teaching urologic oncology fellows.
Assistant Research Physicians are appointed for a renewable position at a competitive salary commensurate with subspecialty training and experience, and additional funds for travel and training. An attractive Federal Government employee benefits package includes health and life insurance coverage, a retirement savings program, and relocation expenses. Student loan repayment is possible through the NIH.

Candidates may be U.S. citizens, permanent residents or possess (or be eligible for) the appropriate work visa and must have successfully completed subspecialty training at a U.S. accredited institution in an appropriate field.
