Responsibilities will generally include data analyses; preparation of manuscripts and conference presentations; contributing to grant preparation; data collection and/or management; and participation in interdisciplinary research groups. The scholar will have extensive opportunities to publish, and access to resources to facilitate her or his independent research. Candidates should be well organized, experienced in working in a multidisciplinary team, and have good writing skills. A record of publications focusing on health communication, HPV vaccination, or cancer prevention is desirable.  

The postdoctoral scholar will be expected to author publications resulting from their research and will be provided mentored opportunities to obtain independent grant support during their postdoctoral training.  The following education and work experience are required:

  • A doctoral degree (PhD or DrPH preferred) in public health, health promotion, health communication or a related field.
  • Demonstrated excellent writing and analytical and statistical programming skills (Stata, SAS or SPSS)
