Full Time - Experienced
Academic / Research
Ongoing studies within the MND have highlighted the importance of diet composition, exercise, and hormonal status on muscle mass and performance during strenuous military operations. MND is seeking a post-doctoral fellow to expand this line of research and execute randomized controlled trials that integrate nutrition, exercise, and pharmacological interventions to identify effective biomedical performance enhancement strategies for Warfighters exposed to military operational stress.
Candidates should have recently earned a doctoral degree in the nutritional sciences, exercise physiology, or a closely related field. Demonstrated proficiency with written and oral communication, and exemplary organizational skills required. Experience conducting nutrition- and exercise-based interventions with human populations preferred. The fellowship may be administered by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) and may be renewed for up to three years. US Citizenship and travel are required. The fellowship may also be administered through direct commission as a US Army Medical Service Corps Officer with an emphasis on physiology and biochemistry.
