Fellowship in Cancer Survivorship Research

February 12, 2018

The Perini Family Survivorship Center at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute invites members of the DF/HCC and Harvard Medical community to apply for a two-year Fellowship in Cancer Survivorship Research.

Applicants from a diverse range of fields including medicine, epidemiology, psychology, public health and potentially others will be considered. Fellows will receive part-time salary support and administrative resources to help them apply their research skills to questions relevant to cancer survivors. Fellows will plan and implement new research studies, collaborate with center faculty on existing studies of cancer survivors, and apply for external funding.  Applicants may be at any academic level, but mid-career and established researchers whose area of expertise can be expanded to survivorship are particularly encouraged. Past fellows have developed research in behavioral health, sexual health, infertility, health services, sleep medicine, cardiac outcomes, and bone health.  Applicants with background in intervention research, health informatics, health services research, and other areas of expertise with potential for innovative applications to cancer survivorship are especially encouraged. We anticipate funding will be available to support a .20 to .50 FTE position depending on rank and experience. Fellowship period can begin 7/2018 or 9/2018. 

Interested applicants should send a CV and cover letter describing background and research interests to: Cheryl Medeiros-Nancarrow@dfci.harvard.edu.  Applications will be considered beginning January 12, 2018 until the position is filled.
