Metabolic Epidemiology Training Opportunities with Specific Investigators

Lifestyle Risk Factors for and Molecular Epidemiology of Pancreatic Cancer - Postdoctoral Fellowship

Rachael Stolzenberg-Solomon, Ph.D., M.P.H., R.D., senior investigator in the Metabolic Epidemiology Branch of the NCI Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, is recruiting a motivated postdoctoral fellow who is interested in clarifying the etiology of pancreatic cancer through various study design and molecular approaches, as well as biomarker and metabolic studies particularly related to nutritional exposures and diabetes. Potential opportunities include 1) cohort analyses of diet and lifestyle exposures; 2) molecular epidemiologic studies to investigate genetic susceptibility (e.g. genome-wide association studies) and biomarkers (including metabolomics) in prospective studies; and 3) studying biologic mechanisms underlying epidemiologic risk factors using biomarkers.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a doctoral degree or be enrolled in a graduate degree program in epidemiology, nutrition or related field. Individuals with training in epidemiologic methods and statistics, strong quantitative skills, and an understanding of biological and molecular processes and population genetics are encouraged to apply. Good writing skills are also desirable.

For more details on this opportunity, please contact Dr. Stolzenberg-Solomon.

To Apply: See the Division Fellowship Information page for an overview, qualifications, and application details.
