Dr. Warren Andersen is interested in forming new collaborations with researchers interested in the following aspects of cancer risk: molecular and genetic epidemiology, social determinants of risk, and precision interventions for cancer prevention.


Postdoctoral Researchers

We seek a postdoctoral fellow to join our productive research group focusing on the molecular epidemiology of cancer risk. The fellow will be enrolled in a postdoctoral research and training program designed to develop the skills necessary for success as an independent investigator. The training emphasizes grantsmanship, initiating and carrying out research projects, written and oral presentations, and facilitating local, national, and international collaborations. The postdoctoral researcher will have the opportunity to work on a wide range of established research projects, and lead their own research initiatives using a wealth of available data. Specific duties of the position include performing statistical analyses, writing manuscripts, and assisting in the development of grant proposals.

The ideal candidate will be interested in investigating the associations between genetic, social, and modifiable risk factors with breast and colorectal cancers. Preference will be given to applicants with experience with cancer epidemiology and/or genetic analysis. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
