Nutrition and Behavioral Cancer Prevention in a Multiethnic Population
The Nutrition & Behavioral Cancer Prevention in a Multiethnic Population Postdoctoral Training Program is supported by the NIH/NCI under the R25T mechanism. Trainees will experience the interdisciplinary nature of the nutritional and behavioral epidemiology of cancer through individually tailored educational and research experiences. Fields of research include genetic epidemiology, diet, physical activity, hormones and cancer, and biostatistics. This Program offers several unique resources including three prospective cohorts, consortia, a nutritional data base designed for multiethnic populations, and a tumor registry. Trainees are awarded a yearly stipend, medical insurance, and a research/educational allowance.
The Program seeks highly motivated individuals with recent doctorates (e.g., PhD, DrPH, MD/MPH) in epidemiology, nutrition, behavioral sciences, biostatistics, or related disciplines. Preference is given to applicants with prior research experience in population sciences. U.S. citizenship or permanent residency is required.
We are particularly interested in recruiting trainees who are members of ethnic/racial groups underrepresented as cancer researchers as defined by the National Institutes of Health. Given our location, our program offers excellent opportunities for research addressing Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders.
