The Department of Medical Oncology seeks a Program Administrator to support the DFCI InAdvance initiative and independent research faculty in Division of Population Sciences.
InAdvance is a Dana-Farber strategic initiative designed to disrupt the historical cancer care model by bringing state-of-the-art early detection and precision intervention to people at higher risk of developing cancer. This integrated research-clinical model will accelerate understanding of precursor conditions that precede cancer and bring earlier interventions for patients more rapidly. Through both research and clinical offerings, InAdvance serves people at elevated risk for developing cancer. This includes people with precursor conditions, environmental exposures, cancer survivors at elevated risk of developing secondary cancers, and those with a family history of cancer.
The Division of Population Sciences is committed to population-based research as a means to detect cancer early, prevent cancer at the community-based level, identify and evaluate cancer risk in high-risk populations, and measure the quality and outcomes of cancer therapy. Population Sciences faculty conduct research that includes identification of cancer risk, risk mitigation, early detection, prevention, delivery of cancer care, and health policy.
This is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic individual who is interested in providing programmatic and administrative support to a growing division and center. Under the direction of the Executive Director, the Program Administrator will have comprehensive administrative responsibility of the InAdvance program and is expected to also work with research faculty in the Division of Population Sciences.
