Post-Doctoral Training in Behavioral Oncology

The H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center located at the University of South Florida, invites applications to its post-doctoral training program in behavioral oncology. This NCI-funded 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). Current funded areas of faculty research include: nicotine dependence and tobacco control, cervical cancer prevention, cultural and literacy issues in cancer prevention and control, disparities in cancer care, quality of life issues in cancer survivors, and psychosocial interventions for family caregivers of cancer patients. Training faculty include: Thomas Brandon, Ph.D.; David Drobes, Ph.D.; Anna Giuliano, Ph.D., Paul Jacobsen, Ph.D.; Cathy Meade, Ph.D., R.N., Susan McMillan, Ph.D., R.N. and Richard Roetzheim, M.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 permanent residents. To apply, send completed application form (available at the website listed below), curriculum vitae and two letters of reference to: Christine A. Marsella, Research Program Associate, H.
