Posted: 10/24/2019
Type: Full-Time

Position Description: The Oklahoma Tobacco Research Center (OTRC) of the Stephenson Cancer Center at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City announces a post-doctoral fellowship opportunity (1-3 year appointment) for a fellow who aspires to become an independent academic researcher in the areas of tobacco use/cessation, cancer prevention, and health disparities research.

The fellow will primarily work with Dr. Darla Kendzor and her team to conduct and evaluate interventions targeting tobacco use and other modifiable cancer risk factors in at-risk and vulnerable populations. Dr. Kendzor’s current NIH-funded research focuses on evaluating the effectiveness of offering small financial incentives for biochemically-verified smoking abstinence among socioeconomically disadvantaged adults (uninsured or receiving Medicaid benefits) who are participating in a clinic-based tobacco cessation program. This research also aims to identify treatment mechanisms and other contextual factors that influence cessation via smartphone-based ecological momentary assessments. Other ongoing research will evaluate mobile approaches to the delivery of incentives and the use of incentives to promote cessation among homeless adults. The fellow will additionally have access to training opportunities and data collected as part of the Tobacco Treatment Research Program (TTRP), which offers free tobacco cessation counseling and pharmacotherapy to adults from campus and the community. For more information, please visit the OTRC website: (

The fellow will be highly involved in manuscript preparation using data from completed and ongoing studies. Fellows will also take part in the formal OTRC training program which includes both coursework and seminars that will provide training in grant writing and preparation, conducting community-based participatory research, clinical trials, tobacco-related research methods, advanced statistical techniques, and tobacco biomarkers.

Qualifications: Qualifications include a doctoral degree in social/behavioral sciences, public health, psychology, or other relevant area. Excellent writing skills are required. Experience with diverse populations, tobacco research, health disparities research, and quantitative methods are preferred but not required. Salary and benefits are excellent. In addition, fellows will have access to funds to conduct research and attend external trainings and conferences.
