You will also work closely with another post-doctoral fellow and the two project PIs to undertake project management, summarize and critically appraise the evidence, prepare scientific reports and publications, and attract external research funding. You will work closely with other researchers both within the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics (EBS), WCRF and with an external group of international experts for this project.
You will apply your expertise to collect, summarize and critically appraise the literature evidence on diet, nutritional status, anthropometric characteristics and physical activity on cancer risk and prognosis.
