2. Postdoctoral Fellowship, Division of Behavioral Medicine, University at Buffalo
The University at Buffalo's Division of Behavioral Medicine is seeking PhD or MD candidates with interest in treatment of obesity. The ideal candidate will have experience in implementing behavioral interventions, and the post-doctoral training will continue the trajectory into becoming an independent investigator with an interest in running randomized trials and clinical research. Candidates may have clinical experience in behavioral treatments for problems other than obesity, and want to learn how to apply their skills to family-based obesity treatment. The fellow will receive extensive training in translating basic behavioral research into clinical interventions, and conducting randomized controlled trials and human laboratory research in treatment of pediatric obesity. Trainees will work on existing funded research projects as they develop an independent line of research guided by Dr. Leonard H. Epstein. Trainees will publish scientific papers, present findings at national research meetings, and establish a professional identity and reputation in obesity research. Fellows will be mentored in grantsmanship and expected to apply for funding to support their research. Apply online at:
