Research Oncologist

| Greater NYC Area

The Research Oncology team provides clinical and research leadership, ensuring quality and translating real-world data into insights that benefit cancer patients. This includes guiding decisions about how data sets are developed and used, and driving research from concept to data interpretation to publication.

We are seeking research-trained medical oncologists who are passionate about clinical research and evidence development, interested in exploring and developing innovative new techniques, and looking to lead research projects in a fast-paced, mission-driven environment. As a Research Oncologist at Flatiron, you will work broadly across one or more of our core research initiatives (e.g., real-world evidence, academic partnerships, clinical trials). You will help us push the envelope at the interface of technology and medicine.

We are currently reviewing applications for Research Oncologists at varied points in their career, from new PIs to seasoned investigators, based out of either our New York City Headquarters or our growing San Francisco office. Leadership opportunities exist for senior investigators.

Responsibilities:

  • Lead data-driven research projects involving colleagues within Flatiron, and in collaboration with external partners in life science companies, academia, and government
  • Provide clinical and scientific input as a member of cross-functional teams, on research projects that leverage real-world data to accelerate progress against cancer
  • Contribute to data model development, analyses, results interpretation and publications
  • Represent Flatiron at conferences, both in a speaking and a networking capacity
  • Serve as a source of thought leadership for the direction of the company and its products
  • Provide team guidance through the development of novel processes and products
  • Serve as a primary clinical voice of the company to our life sciences clients and other external partners
  • Work cross-functionally to ensure the highest clinical quality and relevance of our products and data
  • Supply disease- and/or expertise-specific training to coworkers and clients

Requirements:

  • Medical degree, residency, and fellowship from top institutions
  • Demonstrated track record as an independent clinical scientist in one or more oncology-relevant methodological areas (e.g., outcomes research, real world evidence, patient-reported outcomes, health services research, quality improvement science, clinical trials, etc.)
  • Excitement about working in a passionate, fast-paced, technology-driven culture
  • Ease in explaining scientific terms to a non-medical, highly sophisticated audience; superior communication skills
  • Comfort with ambiguity and a willingness to teach and learn

Bonus Points:

  • Expertise in clinical genomics and/or biomarker development
  • Health outcomes research background
  • Formal training in research methodology/data analytic methods

An Insider's view of Flatiron Health

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

An engineer and oncologist work together over several weeks to build an algorithm from a naive prototype to a highly specialized and flexible rule set that can accurately represent the lines of therapy for 95% of patients within a specific disease subset.

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

As engineering manager, I am invested in the professional development of the people I work with. I train team members by pulling them out of their comfort zones to the uncomfortable territory. At Flatiron, it is one of our values - greatness and comfort rarely co-exist.

Kevin

Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

At Flatiron, we believe that learning from the experience of every cancer patient is an imperative — it is the key to accelerating research and continuing to improve the quality of care. Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research.

Zach Weinberg

Co-Founder, President and COO

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Instead of studying the cells, I now have the opportunity to write about the patients. I can tell their stories through the research lens and enable them to advance clinical cancer research through their experiences. I certainly never lose sight of the human behind the cell anymore.
