The CDC-funded Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio is seeking a post-doctoral fellow to contribute to our Core Research focused on improving access to nutritious foods in low-resource urban neighborhoods. This dissemination and implementation study seeks to increase the reach, adoption, and impact of farmers’ markets among people receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. The five-year study includes an intensive formative research phase using both survey research and ethnographic methods that will combine to inform the development of a peer-to-peer intervention to promote farmers’ market use. The post-doctoral fellow will join a vibrant research team that includes a strong community-university partnership and will have an opportunity to develop independent research goals within the scope of this larger project. The ideal candidate will have a PhD in public health, nutrition, community psychology, social work, sociology, anthropology, and/or related fields; a strong background in both qualitative and quantitative research; experience in community-engaged research, and a record of translating research findings.
