The postdoctoral training program is designed in conjunction with the preceptor mentoring the student to fit the individual needs of the trainee. Trainees are expected to carry out independent as well as collaborative research related to aging. Most of the trainees supported by this training grant work on health-related topics. Trainees are also expected to enroll in a multidisciplinary seminar and additional courses where appropriate. Evidence of successful performance is indicated by professional presentations at meetings and publication of research results. Final success is demonstrated by a position in a research environment and funded research in aging.

The BECR Center seeks applicants for the New Perspectives Fellowship, which aims to provide mentorship, training, and a seed grant to expand the number of researchers from under-represented populations conducting research on healthy food choice using behavioral economic strategies. Fellowships will last 18 months and scholars will remain at their own institutions during the fellowship. The Duke-UNC USDA Center for Behavioral Economics and Healthy Food Choice Research (BECR Center) The newly funded USDA Center for Behavioral Economics and Healthy Food Choice Research (BECR) at Duke University and the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill (PI: Matthew Harding, Duke University) strives to apply behavioral economics theories and concepts to uncover potential interventions to improve food choice behaviors contributing to improved nutrition, food security, and the health of American consumers, and to increase the effectiveness of policies and programs designed to improve diets, especially for low-income households. The team will build the field of behavioral economics around food consumption choices with a particular focus on identifying the most successful levers required to motivate healthy food choices and quantifying their effectiveness with regard to the individual consumer, food retailers, and the food industry. The Center has three areas of focus: The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) clients, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) clients, and the general population. With this Request for Proposals, we are seeking to award fellowships to new investigators who come from diverse backgrounds and have research interests that align with those of the BECR Center.
Who Should Apply: We recognize that understanding the behavioral economics of healthy eating choices is a complex problem and that substantial disparities in individuals’ available food choices – whether healthy or not – exist across the population due to various factors, such as socio-economic status. Therefore, the Fellowships are aimed at encouraging scholarly participation by individuals whose backgrounds or unique circumstances enable them to better understand populations and communities historically underrepresented in academic research. The fellowships are open to emerging researchers who are U.S. citizens of appropriate research interests and particularly encourage candidates from lower income backgrounds or geographies, and ethnic and racial minority groups. Recipients of the Fellowships should be employed by a university, college, or research-based organization. They will be mentored by an established researcher associated with the Center. Along with the mentorship, seed grants will be provided to enable recipients to initiate an original research project at their home institutions, while benefiting from the resources and networks available through the Center. Recipients of the Fellowship will be able to attend all training sessions, meetings, webinars, and other events offered by the Center. Recipients will also have the opportunity to present their findings during the annual meetings organized by the Center. Recipients will not receive a stipend in addition to the seed grant.
