Position Description: Position Description: A fellowship opportunity is currently available in the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC) within the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This fellowship will focus on a study to monitor the impact of HPV vaccination on Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)-associated cancers using tissues from central cancer registries. The project will use registries to identify cancer cases for determining the type specific prevalence of HPV in cervical, vulvar, vaginal, penile, anal, and oral cavity/oropharyngeal cancers, especially in areas with higher burden of disease and racial/ethnic diversity. The results of this study will help determine how to best monitor HPV-associated cancers in the U.S. during the long lag between vaccine implementation and anticipated outcome in reduction in cancer incidence. This effort will be important to document the vaccine- specific impact of HPV-associated ca cancer rates in the U.S. The selected fellow will be involved in creation of the final data set,and lead the data analysis and drafting of several manuscripts related to this project.

In line with the focus of this fellowship, the selected fellow will also: •Use NPCR data to document trends in incidence and mortality for oropharyngeal and anal cancers in the United States from 1999-2014. •Utilize data from multiple HPV typing studies to provide detailed HPV genotype level information for in situ and invasive cervical cancers in the United States, stratified by race/ethnicity. •Analyze the interaction of smoking and HPV status status on the survival of cancer patients. •Describe the burden of cervical and stomach cancer mortality in the United States. • And work on various other projects related to HPV and cancer as they arise.

Qualifications: • A medical doctor or doctoral degree in Epidemiology or public health received within the last five years. • Strong analytic skills and three years of experience using statistical software, such as SAS or R. • Experience analyzing international population-based surveys (e.g., Demographic Health Survey, WHO STEPS). • Experience conducting descriptive analysis, and more complex analysis such as inferential analysis. • Demonstrated ability to write and publish scientific articles. •Strong organizational and time management skills. • Ability to work both independently and be an effective team member. • Experience with managing complex projects involving a variety of stakeholders.
