Cancer Survivorship Research Fellowship
The Perini Family Survivorship Center announces the availability of a two-year fellowship for a post-graduate candidate interested in developing expertise in cancer survivorship research. The fellow will be expected to collaborate with center faculty on existing studies, plan and implement new research, and apply for external funding. Potential areas of research include topics relevant to survivors of both pediatric and adult cancers. Applicants from a range of fields including medicine, epidemiology, nursing, psychology, and public health will be considered. Fellows will receive research assistant support as well as mentoring from center faculty. Additional mentoring and consultation from across the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center may also be available. Fellows with appropriate background as health care providers may be able to provide part-time clinical services to cancer survivors seen in one of the affiliated cancer survivor clinics.
Applicants should have a strong background in research methods as well as prior mentored research experience. Individuals with background in sleep medicine, sexual health and other areas of expertise with potential for innovative application to cancer survivorship are especially encouraged to apply.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter describing background and research interests and CV to: Cheryl_Nancarrow@DFCI.HARVARD.EDU
