The Genetic Epidemiology Group (GEP) investigates lifestyle and genetic factors involved in cancer in diverse populations, with the aim of contributing to primary prevention of cancer. These objectives are achieved through collaborative international studies, which integrate large scale epidemiology studies and high throughput omics methods (e.g. lifestyle and environmental exposures questionnaires together with whole genome and RNA sequencing).
An important aim of the group is elucidating etiological factors of cancers showing unexplained substantial geographical variations in incidence. This includes the development of large-scale multidisciplinary projects to achieve biological and epidemiological characterization of cancer patients from all over the world, using the most advanced molecular and statistical approaches.
A postdoctoral opportunity is immediately available within the Group to work on our multidisciplinary cancer studies. Successful candidates should have a strong background in cancer genomics and/or epidemiology and/or biostatistics, as well as a good command of English.
The postdoctoral opportunity is initially for one year with possibility of renewal, for candidates who have completed a Ph.D. or equivalent level. The IARC stipend is currently €2750 per month. The cost of travel for the postdoc, and in certain circumstances for dependants, will be met, a dependant’s allowance paid, and health insurance covered.
Applicants should send a CV, including list of publications and a description of previous research experience, as well as the names and addresses of two academic referees, preferably by email to:
