Job Summary

College of Health - Health & Kinesiology

This position will help oversee multiple clinical translational research projects focused on nutrition, sleep and circadian physiology, and cardiometabolic disease like obesity and diabetes. Research projects on nutrition are designed to investigate the ability of dietary and mindfulness interventions to help people maintain weight-loss. This is important because many people re-gain weight after a weight-loss intervention and preventing this weight re-gain has potential to mitigate risk of cardiometabolic disease. Sleep and circadian research is focused on sleep-based interventions designed to improve insulin sensitivity (a risk factor for type 2 diabetes) and understand the interactions between sleep duration and the timing of food intake. These important studies have the potential to help mitigate the adverse health consequences of getting insufficient sleep in populations like shift-workers, medical and military personnel, students, first responders, and in the transportation industry.
