Behavioral/Social Sciences Research
Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cancer Prevention and Control
A postdoctoral position in biobehavioral and social sciences is available in the Biobehavioral and Social Sciences Program (BSSRP) group at The University of Arizona, Arizona Cancer Center (AZCC), Cancer Prevention and Control Program. This position is funded through a R25T grant from the National Cancer Institute. Working closely with senior investigators, the fellow will participate in ongoing research and develop his/her own behavioral or social science research projects. Research projects are flexible and can be tailored to suit individual interests. However, they must contribute to the overall focus of the Biobehavioral and Social Sciences Program http://azcc.arizona.edu/research/bssrp <http://azcc.arizona.edu/research/bssrp><http://azcc.arizona.edu/research/bssrp> .
The AZCC is particularly interested in developing the careers of those interested in
biobehavioral and social sciences research in areas such as:
* cancer communications
* diet and/or physical activity
* health disparities
* health care services
* network and systems analysis
* psychosocial oncology
* quality of life
* risk assessment
* sun safety
* tobacco control
Research opportunities in clinical and community environments are available. A goal of the AZCC is to
expand the number of faculty members engaged in biobehavioral research, and to foster
translational and transdisciplinary research with a broad array of partners throughout
The AZCC is located within the Arizona Health Sciences Center at The University of Arizona
in Tucson, Arizona. Members of the Biobehavioral and Social Sciences Program have their
academic appointments in a wide variety of departments and colleges, including
psychology, communications, nursing, management, family and community medicine,
pharmacy, and public health. This breadth creates additional opportunities for R25T fellows
to interact with scientists in a wide variety of disciplines. Our location in southern Arizona
and research linkages throughout the southwest create the potential to work with diverse
populations, including people of Latino and Native American backgrounds.
Potential fellows with doctoral level expertise and interest in biobehavioral and social sciences are
strongly encouraged to apply. Eligible candidates are U.S. citizens/permanent residents
who have completed doctoral-level training (e.g. PhD, PharmD, MD, DrPH or equivalent) by
May 2010. For more details about this fellowship opportunity, please visit the R25T Cancer
Prevention and Control Fellowship at www.azcc.arizona.edu/academics/cpc-fellowship.
