Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Cancer Epidemiology

General Description of the Project: The Department of Hygiene and Epidemiology of the University of Ioannina invites applications for two Postdoctoral Research Fellows. These posts are embedded in the project "Blood pressure, blood pressure lowering medications and risk of cancer" funded as part of the ARISTEIA II grand scheme in Greece. Hypertension and cancer are two multi-factorial, severe and chronic conditions. There is limited and in some occasion controversial evidence for an association between hypertension or anti-hypertensive treatment and cancer risk. This proposal aims to investigate further these associations with total cancer risk and risk by cancer site using state-of-the-art evidence synthesis methods and unique large observational datasets. The Fellows will also get involved in other exciting research initiatives within the Department that offer the opportunity for meaningful professional growth, mentoring, and achievement. The grant supports also opportunities for training and career development (workshops, conferences and networking activities), and collaboration with various European research groups.


General Description of the Department: The Department of Hygiene and Epidemiology was founded in 1979 and it's internationally-recognized expertise is on research methodology, evaluation of epidemiologic bias and evidence synthesis methods (www.dhe.med.uoi.gr). The citation impact of the department’s publications is among the highest in Europe across any scientific discipline. There are currently seven faculty members working in the Department and approximately 30 research or clinical fellows at various levels in their careers.


Qualifications: You should have a PhD, or equivalent, in epidemiology or in a related discipline (e.g., public health, biostatistics, etc.). Medical education and/or general understanding of clinical problems is an important advantage. Programming skills and experience in a statistical analysis software (e.g., STATA, SAS, R) are essential. Fluency in English and aptitude with writing and publishing manuscripts are essential.
Applications should include a CV in English, contact details for two academic or professional referees, a cover letter with a personal statement (about half a page) describing your suitability and motivation, and one writing sample (e.g., manuscript or dissertation).
