Post Doc Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship ResearchPOSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS.

Post Doc Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship ResearchPOSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS. The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is accepting applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships in Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship Research (2-3 year appointments). Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in several NIH-funded physical activity intervention, nutrition intervention, mobile technology based intervention, as well as obesity, and cancer survivorship studies. Research focus will be in the following three areas: 1) Trials in cancer survivors of the effect of physical activity and weight control interventions on biomarkers or prognosis and survival, as well as symptom management. 2) Dissemination and implementation research on energy balance interventions for cancer survivors and at risk populations, including interventions delivered in health care settings and technology-based interventions. 3) Basic behavioral research in weight loss and weight loss maintenance, eating behavior, and physical activity. The program is designed to prepare Fellows for independent academic research careers. Fellows will have numerous publication and grant-writing opportunities, and will share in authorship and investigator status in a manner commensurate with their effort and responsibilities. The mentoring team has an exceptional track record of helping fellows obtain independent funding as principal investigators of NIH funded K and R01 awards. Fellows may also develop collaborative projects that can be used to further their own research interests. Salary is extremely competitive with excellent fringe benefits. Qualifications include a doctoral degree in psychology, public health, exercise science, nutrition, communications, or other relevant social or population science. Research experience with physical activity, energy balance, cancer survivorship, or quantitative methods is preferred, but not required. The Department of Behavioral Science, established in 1993, provides an unusually rich opportunity for collegial interaction and an exceptional infrastructure for behavioral research. The exercise physiology laboratory, located in the Behavioral Research and Treatment Center, is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for assessing cardiorespiratory fitness, as well as strength and body composition. Several currently active projects utilize DEXAs to investigate the impact of physical activity and nutrition interventions on the body composition of community participants, cancer patients and survivors. Current studies also include examination of exercise adoption in Hispanic breast cancer survivors, as well as supervised and home-based exercise programs in various cancer survivor populations. MD Anderson Cancer Center is located within Houston's Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world. Houston is the fourth-largest city in the United States, with dynamic cultural and recreational resources and an affordable cost of living. Applications will be reviewed as they are received. Application procedures: Email cover letter, curriculum vita, writing sample, such as a published article or manuscript you have had the primary responsibility of producing, and the names and contact information for at least three professional/academic references to kbasenen@mdanderson.org.
