Dr. Susan Lutgendorf's Biobehavioral Oncology Lab at the University of Iowa is seeking applicants for a new postdoctoral fellowship position. This postdoctoral fellowship will provide an outstanding mentored training experience in psychosocial intervention research among cancer survivors.
We are seeking a postdoc who is looking for a mentored opportunity to learn hands on about the management and delivery of intervention science by working on a new multisite, NCI-funded, randomized controlled trial. The trial will examine the effects of a psychosocial intervention (involving CBT, mindfulness, and ACT) vs. health promotion, on mood, resilience, and quality of life outcomes in ovarian cancer survivors. The intervention will be delivered using web-based video conferencing and will target individuals from both rural and urban locations. The position will allow for supervised clinical hours for licensure, advanced intervention research training, including mentoring students, and the opportunity to publish. For example, data from several recently completed population-based biobehavioral studies of ovarian cancer patients are available for investigation, creating an ideal position for someone with an interest in data analysis and publication. In sum, the position allows for top notch productivity and will provide a strong transition to a career in clinical research. Additional educational and training opportunities are available through the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The position is available immediately, with funding for 1-3 years contingent on performance. The salary will reflect the current NIH schedule.
Please apply online at Jobs@uiowa.edu refer to requisitions number 3235. Application materials should include, 1) a letter of interest that describes research accomplishments, skills and future research plans, 2) full curriculum vitae, and 3) names and contact information of 2-3 individuals who will provide letters of recommendation. Please direct all questions about the position to Dr. Lutgendorf.
