A post-doctoral fellowship is available immediately (start date is negotiable) at the College of Nursing at the University of South Carolina, Columbia. The Fellow will assist the Associate Dean in the coordination of assessment and intervention studies on exercise promotion to include: training of community volunteers to deliver an exercise program, oversee exercise assessments and data collection, help supervise research staff and students, and assist with statistical analyses. There are also opportunities to contribute to the maintenance of exercise particularly by the use of e-technology. In addition, the Fellow could develop one or more independent studies related to physical activity promotion and cancer survivorship. The fellow will be expected to contribute to manuscripts and in the submission of grant proposals, so a candidate with excellent writing skills and/or strong analytic skills is preferred. There are excellent collaborative opportunities with researchers at the Arnold School of Public Health, Department of Exercise Science, and Psychology among others. The initial appointment will be for one year, with the potential for renewal.
Requirements: A PhD or similar doctoral degree in psychology, exercise science, nursing, public health, or other behavioral science is required. The ideal candidate will have at least two years of hands-on experience with exercise promotion and interest in working with cancer survivors
