To be eligible, candidates must have completed a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline (e.g., public health, community psychology, social work, urban planning) during the last three years. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience or expertise in community capacity, health promotion, health equity, and mixed-methods research design and analysis. For consideration, please send a current CV, a brief letter describing interest in the position and relevant background (1 page max), and contact information for three professional references to Brian Christens and Paula Tran Inzeo . Applications will be reviewed as they are received, for a desired start date in the very near future.
