Job Title: Postdoctoral Fellow (Epidemiology, CBPR)
Job Number:
Organization: VCU Institute for Inclusion, Inquiry, and Innovation, Division of Epidemiology
Posted: 12/12/2017
Type: Full-Time
Classification: Epidemiology
Industry: Academic Institutions
Number of Openings: 1
Location: Richmond,  VA    USA
Position Description: Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), the Institute for Inclusion, Inquiry & Innovation (iCubed) and the School of Medicine seek applicants for a full-time, 12-month appointment as a post-doctoral fellow in the Health and Wellness in Aging Populations Transdisciplinary Core. The chief purpose of this core is to address problems of older and disabled adults “aging in place” within low income senior housing apartment buildings and surrounding neighborhoods in Richmond, Virginia. Collectively, the core will nurture communities to enhance the social and health aspects of daily living across adulthood; it will address social determinants of health and health disparities facing the population, which is primarily African-American and low- income. The core also will collaborate with health professionals, academics, urban planners, policy experts, and community housing experts to develop a sustainable program of research, education, and service delivery that will translate to the community at large.

The post-doctoral fellow will contribute 100% of their effort to the Health and Wellness in Aging Populations Transdisciplinary Core. This interprofessional research position is designed as a transition to research independence program for early career epidemiologists interested in community- engaged research. Training will be available to develop skills in community based participatory research, team science research approaches, and transitioning to careers inside and outside academia.

The post-doctoral fellow will collaborate with several multidisciplinary teams and community based organizations and support community-engaged data collection. The research will focus on epidemiological analysis of population level data, including genetically-informed data, from urban Richmond communities. The post- doctoral fellow will also be responsible for leading a variety of data analysis projects, manuscript publication in peer- reviewed journals as well as non- traditional venues, and teaching graduate- level students and community partners the basics of data analysis and interpretation.

This position is affiliated with our Epidemiology division and with our Institute for Inclusion, Inquiry and Innovation. The mission of the core is to address problems related to older and disabled adults “aging in place,” through community-engaged research, education, and a collaborative service delivery program.
