Overview: The Cancer Early Detection Advanced Research (CEDAR) center is a collaborative institution within the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. The Knight Cancer Institute, known as one of the pioneers in personalized cancer medicine, is an international leader in research and cancer treatment. At CEDAR our mission is to detect and stop lethal cancers at the earliest stage because early detection saves lives. This is an ambitious goal, one that requires novelty, creativity, and innovation. We are comprised of biologists, chemists, biomedical engineers, computationalists, and clinicians conducting groundbreaking translational cancer research to help people maintain a high quality of life and reduce cancer mortality, to create a global early detection community, and to have a positive impact on the Oregon economy.
Our Commitment to Diversity: CEDAR is committed to increasing the diversity of the campus community. We are dedicated to promoting inclusion and multiculturalism by having outstanding researchers of diverse backgrounds work together on multiple projects. We encourage high-risk, high-reward research projects because defeating cancer requires out-of-the-box thinking and new perspectives. Our research is milestone driven to ensure that each project is fulfilling its stated goals.
Every Knight Cancer employee is expected to embody our guiding principles:
CEDAR is seeking a full-time modeler and statistician with a background in quantitative analysis and proficiency with scientific programming. The ideal candidate will be highly motivated to develop subject-area expertise and will prioritize quality in everything they do. We offer a supportive and collaborative environment allowing excellent opportunities for intellectual and professional growth in a team science environment.
We work closely with collaborators at the National Cancer Institute, the ACED alliance, and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to explore a wide range of questions about novel screening and prognostic biomarkers, personalized and targeted treatments, population cancer trends, and racial/ethnic disparities. Our work is statistical, computational, and policy-relevant. We use diverse datasets to create models of cancer progression with and without specific interventions, and we frequently rely on simulations to conduct virtual trials and study expected outcomes. The work is a dynamic mix of data analysis, computer programming, graphics development, policy research, and technical writing.
