There is a GA position available for colorectal cancer screening project from August, 2021 till December, 2021. This is a pilot project to increase colorectal cancer screening for rural and minority populations in Nebraska using implementation science and community based approach. PhD level GA is preferred, but MPH students with previous research experience are encouraged to apply.

Tasks/skills required:

  • Summarizing and synthesizing literature for grant proposal/manuscript
  • Document formatting/editing
  • Coordination of meeting schedule with clinical/community practice partners

This would be a great opportunity for a student to experience grant proposal development and submission process, as well as developing partnership with clinical/community practice partners. It would be greater if they are interested in CRC screening or implementation science!
