A Postdoctoral Opportunity is available at the International Agency for Research on Cancer, World Health Organization within the SECTION OF GENETICS / GENETIC EPIDEMIOLOGY GROUP.
Tasks / responsibilities: The Genetic Epidemiology Group (GEP) investigates lifestyle and genetic factors involved in cancer in diverse populations, with the aim of contributing to primary prevention of cancer.
These objectives are achieved through collaborative international epidemiological and genomic studies, which integrate large scale epidemiology studies and high throughput genomic methods in a multidisciplinary approach (e.g., genome-wide association studies, whole genome sequencing, and serological biomarkers).

How to Apply: Applicants should send a CV, including list of publications and a description of previous research experience, as well as the names and addresses of two academic referees, preferably by email to:
