The Stanford Cancer Survivorship Research Laboratory, led by Dr. Oxana Palesh, in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University School of Medicine has an open, fully-funded postdoctoral position.

Start date for the fellowship is flexible, but ideally would occur by September 1, 2020.
- We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated individual with a doctoral degree in psychology (e.g., clinical, counseling, social, educational), epidemiology, public health, medicine, nursing, or a related social science field with an interest in developing expertise in conducting cancer-related behavioral intervention trials.
- Individuals from underrepresented racial or ethnic groups are encouraged to apply.
- Prior research experience or training in behavioral sleep medicine is a plus, but is not essential.
