The NCI-designated Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center (WFBCCC) at the Wake Forest School of Medicine (WFSM) and its Neuro-Oncology Program (NRO) are seeking established investigators to fill faculty tenure track positions in the broad field of Neuro-Oncology.
Candidate requirements are:
- PhD, MD, MD/PhD, DVM or DVM/PhD degree
- Established independent research program
- Active funding (especially NCI)
- Interest in engagement in cross-disciplinary and/or translational collaborations
- Investigators in the specific areas of tumor immunology and immunotherapy, metabolism, therapeutic development, cancer stem-like cells, and animal models of cancer that pertain to primary brain tumors and brain metastases are especially encouraged to apply.
The NRO draws from the tradition and established infrastructure of the Brain Tumor Center of Excellence (BTCOE), an interdepartmental highly collaborative initiative focused on translational/clinical neuro-oncology. Neuro-Oncology at WFSM has been a continuous member of the Adult Brain Tumor Consortium (ABTC), an NCI-supported early phase CNS Consortium. WFBCCC is the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center with an NCORP Research Base. The Gamma Knife Center at Wake boasts one of the most experienced treatment teams in the country and is one of the most active centers in the United States.
The WFBCCC has strong connections with the Wake CTSI, the Wake Forest Institute of Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM), the Wake Forest University Departments of Physics and Chemistry, the Virginia Tech-Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences (SBES), the Sticht Center on Aging, the Center for Human Genomics, the Center for Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism, and other research entities which provides a dynamic environment for cutting-edge multidisciplinary research.
