We dare to imagine a world where no one dies of cancer. Do you dare to imagine with us? 

The Prevent Cancer Foundation® is the only U.S. nonprofit organization focused solely on saving lives across all populations through cancer prevention and early detection.  Through research, education, outreach and advocacy, we have helped countless people avoid a cancer diagnosis or detect their cancer early enough to be successfully treated.    

The Foundation is rising to meet the challenge of reducing cancer deaths by 40% by 2035. To achieve this, we are committed to investing $20 million for innovative technologies to detect cancer early and advance multi-cancer screening, $10 million to expand cancer screening and vaccination access to medically underserved communities, and $10 million to educate the public about screening and vaccination options.  

You can browse our open positions below. Compelling candidates with less experience than listed may be considered.

Research suggests that women and people of color may self-select out of opportunities if they don’t meet 100% of the job requirements. We encourage people who believe they have the skills necessary to thrive at the Prevent Cancer Foundation to apply for these positions.

Join us to work toward a world where cancer is preventable, detectable and beatable for all.
