Biomedical Imaging Faculty Position

H. Lee Moffitt Cancer and Research Institute is a modern facility in Tampa, Florida. We strive to be the leader in understanding in the complexity of cancer through team science and applying those insights for human benefits. Be part of the cure by joining Moffitt's team of 800 research faculty scientists, career staff scientists, postdocs, graduate students and support staff dedicated to cancer research.

Position Highlights:

The Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center is seeking an open-rank, tenure-track faculty member with research interests related to biomedical imaging, machine learning, radiomics and/or pathomics. The center offers an intellectually stimulating environment for faculty to develop and apply image-computing solutions to highly translational and clinically relevant problems in oncology. The faculty member is expected to lead an independent research program, leveraging Moffitt's vast data resources to accelerate discoveries across the basic, clinical and population sciences at Moffitt Cancer Center. Moffitt is affiliated with the University of South Florida and a University appointment is available in the appropriate rank as applicable. Methodological research in informatics is also expected.

The Department currently has 14 faculty and approximately 27 staff engaged in a wide range of statistical, bioinformatics, and informatics research and collaborations on clinical and biological studies in cancer including novel therapeutic and drug discoveries, prognostic and predictive biomarker developments, chemoprevention, high throughput genomics, proteomics, next-generation sequencing data-based investigations, epidemiological studies, comparative effectiveness research, clinical trial designs, and personalized medicine studies. Many of these projects draw upon Moffitt's Total Cancer Care initiative, which provides access to a comprehensive set of clinical and molecular data on a large number of cancer patients.

The Ideal Candidate:

• We seek candidates who can lead a research program as Principal Investigator in biomedical imaging while also contributing to the many current clinical studies at Moffitt, as evidenced by a history of peer-reviewed publications and involvement in grant supported research projects.
• Preference will be given to applicants with an outstanding record doing team science with experience in biomedical imaging, computational imaging, radiomics, pathomics, and machine learning as it applies to oncology.
