Position Description:

Natalie Slopen, ScD in The Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow to work on projects related to childhood experiences and the emergence of disparities in cardiometabolic health. The postdoctoral research fellow will have the opportunity to lead projects related to the social determinants of health across the life course using a variety of population-based cohort studies and the Bucharest Early Intervention Project. The position can be tailored to the fellow's specific interests, and projects can include both health-promoting and/or harmful exposures across levels of analysis (e.g., individual, family, neighborhood, state). This position can begin immediately, with annual renewal possible, dependent on progress review and available funding. The candidate can begin to work remotely; once in-person research activities resume, the candidate should be based in the Boston area to fully benefit from professional development opportunities for fellows at Harvard Chan. The postdoctoral research fellow's primary responsibilities will be related to research activities (e.g., analyze data, write manuscripts). The fellow may also be asked to provide support related to collaborative grant writing and the design of future studies.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Qualified candidates will have completed a doctoral degree in epidemiology, psychology, education, sociology, or a related field;
  • Specialization or demonstrated interest in the study of life course epidemiology, biomarkers of stress, social determinants of child health, the early life origins of racial and ethnic and socioeconomic health disparities, and/or cardiometabolic health outcomes or risk factors;
  • Advanced skills in statistical analysis, including experience conducting multi-level modeling and longitudinal analyses; experience with structural equation modeling is a plus;
  • Experience writing research papers for publication in peer-review journals;
  • Ability to work independently and collaboratively;
