Our center hosts and partners with a variety of affiliates to provide implementation science and cancer control training to interested scholars.

Post-doctoral Fellowships

We are currently seeking applications for Post-Doctoral Fellowships with our center. Current openings address methods development and applications in Implementation Science. However, all applications will be considered. Applications are considered on a rolling basis. Please check out this flyer for more details.


PhD, DrPH, MD, or other doctoral degree in a public health related discipline, or a doctoral degree in another discipline with an interest in transitioning to implementation science research focused on cancer prevention and control (e.g., communication, psychology).

How to Apply:

For questions, contact the Center Directors, Drs. Ross Brownson (rbrownson@wustl.edu) and Graham Colditz (colditzg@wustl.edu).

To apply, send a cover letter, curriculum vitae and professional reference list by email to Maggie Padek (mpadek@wustl.edu).

Dissemination & Implementation Science Training

Institute for Implementation Science Scholars

The Institute for Implementation Science Scholars (IS-2) is a mentored training program for post-doctoral scholars interested in applying dissemination and implementation (D&I) research to proven behavioral and social science research to eliminate chronic disease disparities. This Institute is hosted by Washington University and is held in St. Louis each summer. Applications are currently closed for the 2020 cohort but check their website for information on 2021 applications. 

Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (TIDIRC)

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) hosts this training institute to provide participants with a thorough grounding in conducting dissemination and implementation (D&I) research with a specific focus on cancer, across the cancer control continuum. The institute utilizes a combination of online coursework (six modules with related assignments), and a 2-day in-person training.
