The 20-year-old, who has returned to full training with Jackie McNamara's side, has recently been given the all-clear following a battle with cancer.
Moore, who spent much of last season on loan at Dunfermline, is urging fellow youngsters to take precautions after developing melanoma skin cancer.
Speaking to Sky Sports News he said: "A major factor in me contracting the disease was that I hadn't put on sun cream when playing football.
"Now I just want to be given the chance to play with the talented players coming through at Tannadice. It is unbelievable how well they are playing.
"They are all great lads and my target now is to try and get into the team and score a few goals. If I could do that, I'd be very happy."
And one man backing Moore to succeed is Dunfermline first-team coach Neil McCann, who was impressed by his dedication and professionalism during his time at East End Park.
"Jordan never really went around feeling sorry for himself and that just shows a huge strength of character," said the Sky Sports pundit.
"Right away he was very positive, we were all positive for him, and bought into that positivity. That has proved to be the case as he is a strong-willed boy."
