The individual will conduct research related to the causes and risk factors of cancer, and will work and collaborate with other epidemiologists, geneticists, biologists, and clinicians in the Cancer Center and its affiliated hospitals (Texas Children’s, the Houston VA Medical Center, St. Luke’s Hospital, and Ben Taub General Hospital). Collaborations with faculty at MD Anderson Cancer Center are encouraged. Previous research experience, history of successful peer-reviewed grant funding, and a relevant publication record are required.

A generous naming gift for the Cancer Center of $100M by the Duncan family provides the center with the resources to grow and prosper in the future.
