We have an unexpected position available starting as early as September 1, 2019 as a part of the Health Disparities Research Scholars (T32) Post-Doctoral Training Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health. We will start reviewing applications on 5/1 and will continue until the position is filled.
The Health Disparities Research Scholars (HDRS) Program is an interdisciplinary post-doctoral training program based in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. The HDRS Program has been funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Population Dynamics Branch, since 2007.
The objective of the Program is to provide training at the postdoctoral level in interdisciplinary research that addresses disparities in health status and health outcomes among minority populations, as well as to attract and maintain underrepresented minorities in academic research careers. We integrate biomedical sciences, public health sciences, and sociocultural and behavioral sciences that are prerequisite to addressing health disparities. We provide training at the postdoctoral level in interdisciplinary research that addresses disparities in health status and health outcomes with an emphasis on maternal/child, adolescent and family health.
Program faculty come from a broad range of disciplines, including medicine, public health, economics, psychology, epidemiology, sociology, social work, human ecology, and biosciences. These faculty are involved with nationally known centers and institutes including the Institute for Research on Poverty, Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, the Center for Demography and Ecology, and the Population Health Institute.
We are currently recruiting postdoctoral scholars to begin on or after 9/1/2019. Candidates from diverse backgrounds and disciplines across the social, behavioral, biological, and health sciences are encouraged to apply.
