Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Texas A&M Agrilife Research
Position 16: Diabetes and Nutrition (Location: Prairie View A&M University, Prairie View, Texas)
Advisor: This position will work with Dr. Janet Antwi, Prairie View A&M University, Prairie View, Texas. Inquiries about this specific position should be sent to Dr. Janet Antwi at jaantwi@PVAMU.EDU
Overview: Diabetes, and other chronic diseases, cause significant disease burden, which can be reduced through health behavior change. Many healthy living-focused interventions target individual-level behavior change; yet complex social and environmental factors, such as food insecurity and the built environment, contribute to poor health outcomes associated with diabetes and other chronic diseases, suggesting the need for multilevel interventions. These multilevel approaches are particularly important in addressing health disparities, as social and environmental factors contribute to the health disparities.
Qualifications: PhD in a relevant discipline (e.g., nutrition, public health, health psychology, or a related discipline).

Please contact me directly at jaantwi@pvamu.edu to apply.
