Background knowledge of scientific research and experience working in a scientific environment are required for this position. Eligible candidates must possess a high level of attention to detail as well as exceptional organizational, writing, and communication skills.   One aspect of the AACR’s mission is to strengthen, support, and promote focused scientific initiatives that facilitate increased progress and enhanced cutting-edge contributions to the understanding of cancer by select scientific disciplines. Pursuant to this mission, the AACR promotes enriched collaborations among cancer researchers with common interests in focused realms of cancer research. AACR scientific working groups function within the framework of the AACR to explore expanded research opportunities and to advance discoveries that lead to greater knowledge and understanding of cancer. There are currently eight AACR scientific working groups dedicated to the following scientific disciplines: cancer evolution, cancer prevention, cancer immunology, chemistry in cancer research, molecular epidemiology, pediatric cancer, radiation science and medicine and the tumor microenvironment. The need to establish additional groups dedicated to timely scientific areas is analyzed on a rolling basis in response to the needs of the cancer research community.   The Assistant Director, Scientific Programs will work closely with the leadership bodies of all scientific working groups and be responsible for assisting with the administration of all relevant programs, activities, and initiatives pertaining to all groups and will be tasked with ensuring the timely completion of all implemented projects.   In addition to scientific working groups, the AACR annually convenes a variety of committees to assist with achieving the goals of the organization.
