Outstanding Academic Positions in Behavioral Sciences


Outstanding opportunities for behavioral scientists at the assistant, associate, or professor level exist in our new Research Center for Health Equity and our Center for Integrated Research in Cancer and Lifestyle (CIRCL). The goal of the Research Center for Health Equity is to conduct research (from molecular to behavioral) and community outreach to reduce cancer disparities in underserved populations. We have a particular interest in Hispanic and Asian populations, the LGBTQI community, and immigrants. Dr. Robert Haile serves as Director of this Center. The goal of the CIRCL is to create a world-class, multi-disciplinary, integrated bedside-to-benchtop-bedside translational lifestyle research center. The Director of CIRCL is Dr. Stephen Freedland. Members of these two centers will be expected to interact with each other, colleagues at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, and collaborators nationally and internationally, and to establish independent, grant-funded research programs. 

We seek to fill at least two positions in behavioral sciences, one specifically to conduct intervention trials that address cancer disparities (here we have a particular interest in physical activity) and the other to conduct intervention trials that address lifestyle and cancer, with a particular interest in short- to mid-term dietary/nutritional interventions in selected cancer patients or those at high risk of cancer. 

Qualified candidates will have the following qualifications: 

  • MD or PhD in a relevant behavioral science, such as psychology or sociology
  • Demonstrable track record of research relevant to either cancer disparities or cancer and lifestyle, including studies of diet/nutrition and cancer or physical activity and cancer
  • Preference will be given to candidates with a track record of grant-funded research 

Cedars-Sinai is an exceptional environment in which to conduct translational research. The Cedars-Sinai Health System is among the nation’s leading providers of healthcare services, medical education, and medical research, with total annual revenues of $3.3 billion.  We have a large research enterprise, comprising more than 1,500 research projects and a robust technology transfer portfolio, as well as highly sought-after training programs, including more than 400 medical residents and fellows. Cedars-Sinai is widely known for its national leadership in transforming healthcare for the benefit of patients. There is a strong institutional commitment to expand and strengthen the research infrastructure specifically as it relates to cancer research.

If you would like more information on these positions, please contact Dr. Robert Haile ( for the Research Center for Health Equity, or Dr. Stephen Freedland ( for CIRCL.
