Join the Best

Join a dynamic and rapidly growing team of more than 250 world-class scientists and physicians at the University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center (UNMCCC). As one of the nation’s 49 National Cancer Institute (NCI) Designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, our team is particularly focused on discovering the causes and the cures for cancers that disproportionately affect the people of the American Southwest — primarily Hispanic, American Indian, and Non-Hispanic White — with strikingly different patterns of cancer incidence, mortality and disparity. The UNMCCC has outstanding research programs in Cancer Control and Cancer Health Disparities; Cancer Genetics, Epigenetics, and Genomics; Cancer Cell and Systems Biology; and Cancer Therapeutics. These programs house several national centers including: The Molecular Discovery and High Throughput Target Screening Center (, one of the nation’s 6 Chemical Biology Consortium Centers of Excellence in The NCI NExT Program; The New Mexico Center for the Spatiotemporal Modeling of Cell Signaling (, one of 13 NIH National Centers for Systems Biology; and a NIH Clinical and Translational Sciences Center. Rich collaborations with UNMCCC partners (Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories; Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute) with unparalleled computing and technology infrastructure enrich our research endeavors. The UNMCCC is the center of a collaborative statewide cancer clinical trials and health delivery research network and is funded by a NCI NCORP Grant (Minority/Underserved), and is also a member of the ORIEN National Cancer Precision Medicine Network ( We seek highly motivated academic physicians and physicianscientists to join our team.
