T32 Research Fellow in Cancer Care DeliveryPosting Date: 10/18/2023
Closing Date: 12/01/2023
The University of Michigan School of Nursing announces up to four postdoctoral research fellowship positions that are funded by a National Cancer Institute T32 training program (T32-CA-236621).
Fellows will be responsible for furthering their training in one aspect of cancer care delivery research, descriptive discovery, intervention development and testing, and implementation science, through formal coursework, informal seminars, applied experiences with research teams, and through mentored research. Fellows are expected to prepare first-authored, data-based publications in peer review journals, submit at least one extramural research grant, and develop expertise in the conduct of cancer care delivery research. Populations of interest include adults and pediatric patients and their caregivers. Settings may include prevention, diagnosis and treatment, survivorship, and end-of-life.
Fellows will receive mentoring from interdisciplinary faculty across the University with funded research programs focused on cancer care delivery science. In addition to seminars and coursework, professional development activities will be planned in grantsmanship, preparing scientific papers, disseminating research findings to broad audiences, rigor and reproducibility of research, team science, and the responsible conduct of research.
Applicants will be considered, depending on experience and research productivity. The School of Nursing values diversity highly. All people, including those who belong to groups underrepresented in nursing, are encouraged to apply.
Appointments are contingent upon continued NIH funding and in the case of doctoral graduates, documented completion of doctoral degree no later than July 1, 2024. At this time, we can only assure one year of support while our competing renewal application is reviewed. Only US citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply, due to NIH funding policies.
