We are seeking a highly experienced translational cancer research pathologist to join the University of Arizona Cancer Center (UACC) and the Pathology Department at University of Arizona Health Sciences. The UACC is the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Cancer Center in the State of Arizona. We are increasing our focus on team science initiatives, specifically in gastrointestinal malignancies, with the goal of bringing novel cancer drugs discovered at the UACC to our patients. The qualified candidate will be experienced in translational cancer research and highly motivated, interactive, and creative with the ability to work with basic, translational, and clinical scientists.

The candidate should have a track record in participating with multi-project programs and a publication record reflecting accomplishment in research funded by peerreviewed grants. The candidate should have experience with the development and annotation of biospecimen cores, biomarker development, generation of tissue-based assays, with excellent traditional diagnostic pathology skills and a strong ability to interpret pathology data in the context of a detailed and current understanding of molecular and cellular biology concepts.

The University of Arizona Cancer Center is the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center headquartered in the State of Arizona.
