This exciting postdoctoral opportunity will provide rigorous training in intermittent fasting, colorectal cancer and clinical trial implementation and evaluation. The postdoc position will involve coordination of an innovative NCI-funded trial testing whether time-restricted eating (TRE; 8-hour eating/16-hour fasting) improves treatment-related toxicity, patient-reported adverse events and quality of life, and tumor regression among rectal cancer patients compared to control (>12-hour eating). The trial further explores underlying molecular mechanisms and moderators of treatment outcomes. The postdoctoral fellow will report to highly collegial and experienced faculty members.
