        Fellowship Program

        Behavioral Medicine Research Post-doctoral Fellowship Program
        The behavioral medicine research post-doctoral fellowship is a two-year position for trainees interested in developing academic research careers in the area of behavioral medicine with an emphasis on obesity, nutrition, exercise, cancer prevention, and psychological comorbidities of physical health problems.  Individuals with doctoral degrees in psychology, nutrition, exercise science, or related fields are welcome to apply.  Fellows will join interdisciplinary project teams for ongoing experimental studies and randomized clinical trials, assist with manuscript and grant preparation, administer clinical assessment and treatment protocols to research participants, and be expected to apply for independent grant funding in their second year.  The mission of the post-doctoral program is to assist the fellow in the development of an externally funded independent program of research, be a collaborative and productive member of an interdisciplinary research team, and to facilitate the fellow's transition to an academic research career.  For inquiries regarding available post-doctoral fellowship positions, please contact Sherry Pagoto, Ph.D. at sherry.pagoto@umassmed.eduPosition for fellowship year 2010-11 is currently pending funding.  Please check back for updates or contact Dr. Pagoto for more information.

        Past Fellows

        Matthew C. Whited, Ph.D.

        Dr. Whited is currently an Assistant Professor at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. Dr. Whited received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from West Virginia University.  He joined the department of Preventive and Behavioral Medicine in 2009 following his internship in clinical psychology at the University of Mississippi Medical Center/Jackson VAMC.  Dr. Whited is interested in factors related to cardiovascular disease risk (i.e., cardiovascular reactivity, depression,  and obesity) and healthy methods of modifying these risk factors.  His dissertation involved investigating the influence of forgiveness and apology on cardiovascular stress reactivity following an interpersonal transgression.  He currently is working to expand his research to investigate the unique patterns of reactivity in an overweight and obese population. He has also begun investigating the influence of depression on risk for cardiovascular disease and the mediating role of autonomic imbalance and antidepressant medication. He is also interested in studying methods of treating depression with the goal of minimizing cardiovascular disease risk.

        Kristin L. Schneider, Ph.D.

        Dr. Schneider is currently an Assistant Professor at Rosalind Franklin University in North Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Schneider was an Assistant Professor and post-doctoral fellow in the Division of Preventive and Behavioral Medicine from 2007 - 2009.  Previously, she received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology at the University of Illinois at Chicago and completed her APA-approved internship in Health Psychology at the University of Wisconsin.  Her dissertation, funded by an NIH National Research Service Award, examined the relationship between exercise, mood and caloric intake in overweight, sedentary individuals.  Her research interests include the study of novel interventions for increasing exercise in sedentary populations, relationships between exercise and mood and research on health behavior change.  She is currently working to expand her exercise research to populations with psychiatric and physical diseases such as individuals with co-morbid depression and type 2 diabetes.  She was awarded an R34 from the National Institutes of Mental Health in August 2009 to develop and test an exercise intervention utilizing strategies from brief behavioral activation treatment for depression in women with type 2 diabetes and major depression.  Dr. Schneider has reported her work in over 20 papers published in peer-review journals.

        Jamie Bodenlos, Ph.D.

        Dr. Bodenlos is currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York.  Dr. Bodenlos received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Louisiana State University in 2006.  Her research interests are in understanding the bio-psychosocial pathways of eating that contribute to obesity among low-income minority groups and individuals with co-morbid psychiatric conditions and obesity.  She is interested in developing obesity interventions for these populations through better understanding these pathways.  During her graduate training at LSU, she received clinical and research training at Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, LA.  On her APA-approved clinical psychology internship, she received training in obesity interventions through the Weight Management Center at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC.  She was the 2007 recipient of the Boston Obesity and Nutrition Research Center Award for research examining the role of acute vagus nerve stimulation in eating behavior in depressed adults.  In addition, she is recipient of the competitive NIH Health Disparities Loan Repayment Program.  She was a post-doctoral fellow in the Division of Preventive and Behavioral Medicine under the mentorship of Dr. Sherry Pagoto from August 2006 - July 2008 and then an Instructor from July 2008 - July 2009. Dr. Bodenlos has reported her work in 19 papers published in peer-review journals.
