  1. The capability to lead a translational research program that aims to transform our understanding of cancer biology and to enable new approaches for prevention, detection or treatment of prostate cancer or other urological malignancies.

Sanda, MD, resulting in doubling of the department’s research funding and major increase in philanthropic and endowment funds and raising Emory Urology’s clinical volume to among the top academic urology programs nationwide. The Fray Marshall Chair will have an opportunity to lead additional tenured or tenure-track research faculty recruitments.

Winship has held NCI designation since 2009 and has recently completed its 5-year competitive renewal process. Winship has four major research programs, 164 core members, and $85 million in annual peer reviewed funding.

Eligible candidates may come from a variety of academic backgrounds - e.g. Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Genetics, Epigenetics, Immunology, Molecular Biology, Molecular Endocrinology, Molecular Epidemiology, Pathology, or other disciplines - that are integral to scientific investigation in urological oncology. Accordingly, candidates suitable for concurrent academic appointment in a basic science department and in Urology are encouraged to apply.
