Title: Asst/Assoc Professor of Clinical Medicine
Specific title: AMPATH Associate Site Director (Hematology-Oncology)
Appointment type: Clinical Track Faculty
Department: IUSM - Medicine - Hematology/Oncology
Campus: IU School of Medicine Indianapolis
Position summary:
Indiana University Center for Global Health and the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center (IUSCCC) are seeking a BC/BE subspecialist in Medical Oncology, Hematology-Oncology, Pediatric Hematology-Oncology, Gynecologic Oncology, Radiation Oncology or other suitable oncology subspecialty, to serve as the AMPATH Associate Site Director (Hematology-Oncology) in Eldoret, Kenya.

The Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH) is a well-respected international partnership between Moi University (MU) and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH), and a group of partner institutions collectively referred to as the AMPATH Consortium, led by Indiana University. AMPATH Oncology has grown to be a successful multi-institutional program led by the IUSCCC that serves the catchment area of western Kenya. More information about AMPATH and the Indiana-Moi partnership can be accessed at www.ampathkenya.org.

The primary goal of this position is to increase the impactful clinical and translational research capacity in Kenya, and to expand the field of global oncology among North American trainees. Job responsibilities of the AMPATH Associate Site Director (Hematology-Oncology) include leading the growth of global research and education advancing screening, prevention, and treatment of cancer, including palliative care. It is expected that the Team Leader will successfully compete for extramural funding within 1-2 years and publish his/her work with an emphasis on bidirectional innovation (i.e., work will advance health equities in Kenya and around the world). Whereas the focus of the Associate Site Director is on research and/or education (including the development and coordination of curricula and the coordination electives for post-graduate trainees), it is expected that he/she will also take part in limited clinical activities. These include assisting the supervision of resident/student oncology consult service at MTRH and attending in at least one weekly outpatient clinic for patients with cancer or blood diseases.

The Associate Site Director will join a team of North American health professionals who work alongside their Kenyan counterparts at MU and MTRH. Current team members include senior, mid-level and junior faculty clinicians in multiple disciplines who serve long-term (one year or more) in Kenya, clinical and implementation science researchers, and multiple short-term volunteers. From time to time, Associate Site Directors may provide temporary back-up for the Executive Field Director.

The Associate Site Director (Hematology-Oncology) position has been designed to give a subspecialist who has recently completely fellowship training the opportunity to have an extended and meaningful professional experience in global oncology. Qualified applicants must have a medical doctorate or equivalent and BC/BE in an oncology-related specialty. The ideal candidate will be a highly motivated individual with exceptionally strong clinical skills, outstanding interpersonal and leadership skills, medical experience in a low or low-middle income country or in a resource-poor setting in a high-income country, a strong commitment to medical education and research, and a passion for delivering cost effective medical care to vulnerable populations.

Title: Postdoctoral Fellow in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Appointment type: Postdoctoral Fellow
Department: IUSM - Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
Campus: IU School of Medicine Indianapolis
Position summary:
We are seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. Jaeyeon Kim, an associate professor, in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM-Indianapolis) and IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Dr. Kim studies the molecular mechanisms underlying the development and progression of ovarian and breast cancer with genetically engineered mouse models and human specimens. The current research focus is to elucidate a conundrum surrounding high cancer risks and distinct cancer susceptibility among BRCA1 carriers. Despite the fact that every cell in their body has a harmful BRCA1 mutation, these women are predisposed particularly to ovarian and breast cancers. It remains a mystery. A seminal study (PNAS 2020; PMID: 33262282) from his lab points to the ovarian hormone progesterone as the culprit for BRCA1 carriers’ distinctive susceptibility to ovarian and breast cancer. Integrating this novel insight and unique Brca1 mouse models, his lab is seeking to decipher the molecular mechanisms underlying the progesterone regulation of ovarian and breast cancer development in BRCA1 carriers—with an emphasis on DNA damage/repair, cell-cycle checkpoint regulation, and immune modulation. This innovative, high-impact research will not only reveal a basic molecular mechanism of cancer susceptibility with BRCA1 mutations, but this knowledge will also offer an innovative strategy for the effective nonsurgical prevention and control of these formidable cancers wreaking havoc on women.

Basic qualifications:
Research experience with mice or mouse models―accompanied by molecular biology skills, including PCR, QPCR, western blot, cloning, cell culture, and immunohistochemistry―would be desirable, though not required. Candidates for the postdoctoral position should have, or are expected to receive, a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in biological or biomedical sciences. Also anticipated are motivation and commitment to research and science with the ability to work independently. The laboratory will offer an interactive, intellectually stimulating yet relaxed research and academic environment. Also, the PI will help promote the career development of researchers in the laboratory. As part of these efforts, besides research training, mentoring and training will also be offered in learning how to write and present their research and science effectively.
