Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.



This postdoctoral fellowship will provide training and mentorship in the study of cancer-related symptoms, biopsychosocial factors of symptoms such as microbiome and metabolites, and designing precise interventions to reduce health disparities in symptom management. This opportunity may focus on the role of the microbiome in cancer symptoms and adverse events; interaction among the microbiome and patient reported outcomes (PROs); study of molecular markers and the microbiome as predictors of treatment-related toxicities; or microbiome and metabolomics as they relate to health disparities.
The postdoctoral fellow will join the research team of Dr. Jinbing Bai, Assistant Professor at Emory University Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and the Winship Cancer Institute. The postdoc will help design and conduct research while receiving advanced training to enhance professional skills and research independence needed for pursuit of a career. The work will include assisting Dr. Bai’s research projects focused on microbiome and symptom science in cancer populations. The work includes assistance with data analysis, abstract and manuscript development, and assistance with the development of future grant applications. The postdoc will be encouraged to develop independent lines of research within the broader goals of the projects. Submission of a career development award to the NIH, NCI, or ACS by the end of year 2 is an expectation of the position.

The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic, motivated by experimental and analytical challenges, and have strong skills and will seek, as needed, additional training in statistical analysis or bioinformatics techniques or the microbiome or cancer symptom science. Candidates should have a PhD in nursing, medicine, epidemiology, or related to the microbiome and bioinformatics analysis.

This position can begin as early as Spring 2022, although there is flexibility in the start date. The initial appointment is for one year, renewal expected if progress is satisfactory, with a maximum appointment of 2 years. Salary will be competitive using the NIH postdoctoral salary scale and commensurate with experience. This position includes fringe benefits.

 

Application materials should include a cover letter (describing your interest in the position, work experience, and availability), CV, and contact information (name, email, phone number) for at least three references.
