A key part of this leadership role is to foster collaboration with KPNC’s operational leaders and The Permanente Medical Group (TPMG) clinicians on studies that evaluate ways to improve cancer care delivery, including primary prevention, screening and early detection, diagnosis and treatment, surveillance, survivorship, and outcomes, across the spectrum of different cancers in children and adults. The associate director may be appointed at the Associate Professor or Professor-equivalent level.

          KPNC and TPMG have a long-standing commitment to high-quality cancer care delivery, and currently embarking on an ambitious expansion of our cancer research portfolio. Thus, the Associate Director for Cancer Research calls for broad expertise related to cancer research, which can include epidemiology, evaluation and delivery of clinical and patient-centered care, outcomes assessment, and clinical trials. In general, DOR associate directors spend approximately 20% of their effort (supported by DOR administrative funds) on leadership activities with their section faculty and for the department, and the remainder of their effort on their own research. Section leadership activities include mentorship, administration, and representing the section at management and senior scientific leadership meetings. The successful candidate is expected to maintain their own externally funded research portfolio including NIH or other federal, foundation or industry funding, collaborate effectively with TPMG physicians and program leaders within KPNC, work with other DOR researchers on content and methodological issues, and develop national and international collaborations to advance research, quality of care and outcomes related to cancer.

          Required qualifications include an MD or PhD and research experience equivalent to a DOR Research Scientist II or III (similar to an Associate Professor or Professor in a university-based setting). The ideal candidate will have experience in productively leading and cultivating research programs and in successfully mentoring researchers and clinicians. The candidate should have a well-established track record of investigator-initiated grant funding, peer-reviewed publications, collaboration with clinicians, strong methodologic expertise, and experience working with electronic health records.

          DOR is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and strongly encourages women and applicants of color to apply.
