The Stanford Urologic Cancer Epidemiology Lab, led by Associate Professor of Urology Dr. Benjamin I. Chung at Stanford University, is seeking a talented scientist to join the research team. Kidney cancer incidence rates have steadily grown since the 1990s, with kidney cancer becoming the ninth most diagnosed cancer in the US.  Kidney cancer, often detected incidentally by imaging, is an often-understudied neoplasm in cancer epidemiology research. Kidney cancer represents the deadliest urological neoplasm and has a dismal late-stage 5-year survival rate.  The goal of this postdoctoral program is to conduct high-quality epidemiological research in the field of kidney cancer epidemiology (including prevention and screening, control, etiology, health disparities, treatment, and survivorship).  Research will be accomplished through an immersive program designed to provide fellows with the methodology, clinical exposure, and track record of productivity to succeed.

Training Overview

  • Individualized mentorship from a vibrant group of successful faculty from both urology and epidemiology at Stanford.
  • Opportunities for didactic training in epidemiology and research methodology.
  • Access to patients and data from local and national leading studies.
  • Clinical exposure through outpatient clinic shadowing.
  • Opportunities to develop and apply for research grants.
  • Stanford University offers excellent benefits and competitive salaries.

o Support is available for 1-year appointment with renewal up to 3 years of training and includes:
 Tuition, books, and software; Research-related costs; Conference travel.

  • Applicants from underrepresented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
  • Applicants are not limited to United States citizens.
Required Application Materials:
  • A statement describing areas of research interest, career goals, and relevant experience.
