A postdoctoral position is available in the Oncology, Nutrition and Exercise Group (ONE Group) at the Penn State Cancer Institute and Department of Public Health Sciences within the Penn State College of Medicine. The candidate will lead multidisciplinary projects aimed at: 1) conducting clinical and basic science research on energetics and cancer; 2) translating effective energetics interventions into clinical cancer care in a manner that will be broadly disseminable; 3) guiding observational analyses and translational research on pathogenesis and new intervention targets and; 4) mentoring graduate students, as well as domestic and international collaborators, in clinical and translational research. The ONE group conducts transdisciplinary research on energetics in cancer that includes randomized control trials, animal models and in vitro approaches, epidemiological analysis, and biomarker assessment in patient samples. We seek highly qualified individuals who are highly motivated, flexible, collaborative, detail-oriented, and have the ability to multitask and a commitment to research excellence. The successful candidate should have a PhD with a strong background in either molecular biology/biochemistry OR epidemiology OR exercise physiology/behavior and wish to expand their training into human and/or animal studies of energetics and cancer. Research experience in epigenetics, flow cytometry, and animal models, OR clinical research, statistical modeling and data management OR in delivering and prescribing exercise interventions in cancer patients or other chronical diseases would be advantageous. Please include a cover letter, CV, and the names/addresses of 3 references.
