The H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, invites applications to its post-doctoral training program in behavioral oncology. This NCI-supported T32 interdisciplinary training program is designed to prepare fellows for careers as independent investigators engaged in research on behavioral aspects of cancer prevention, detection and control. The program combines a specialized curriculum (formal didactic training and one-on-one interactions with experienced mentors) with research experience (participation in funded studies under the guidance of an experienced investigator).
We are particularly interested in candidates with an interest in cancer prevention and early detection, sociocultural issues in cancer prevention and control, disparities in cancer care and outcomes, quality of life and symptom management in cancer survivors, energy balance, psychosocial and behavioral aspects of cancer genomics and genetics, nicotine dependence and tobacco control, and health system and provider aspects of cancer prevention and control.
A strong mentoring and career development program is in place in the Division of Population Science. Training faculty include: Thomas Brandon, Ph.D., Tiffany Carson, Ph.D., Martine Extermann, M.D., Ph.D., Anna Giuliano, Ph.D., Brian Gonzalez, PhD., Clement Gwede, Ph.D., R.N., Heather Jim, Ph.D., Peter Kanetsky, Ph.D., Cecile Lengacher, R.N., Ph.D., Cathy Meade, Ph.D., R.N., Vani Simmons, Ph.D., Marilyn Stern, PhD., Shelley Tworoger, Ph.D., Susan Vadaparampil, Ph.D., Damon Vidrine, Dr.P.H., Jennifer Irvin Vidrine, Ph.D., and Christine Vinci, Ph.D.
Applicants must have a terminal degree (Ph.D., Ed.D., Sc.D., D.P.H. or M.D.) in a social science, a behavioral science, nursing, education, public health or medicine and be committed to a career in behavioral oncology research. Stipends and benefits are highly competitive. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until positions are filled. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. Fellowships are for 2 years. Support for tuition, books, software and conference travel is available.
