The Department of Pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in adolescent reproductive health, with a focus on evaluation and program implementation. The position will offer significant opportunities to participate in community-engaged interdisciplinary research, refinement of data management and data analysis skills, and generation of publications. The fellow would be involved in conducting community-engaged research, including the evaluation and implementation of adolescent sexual and reproductive health programs. Existing projects evaluate the implementation of community-based adolescent pregnancy prevention programs for vulnerable populations such as system-engaged youth and rural youth, and research on sexual health among young adults with chronic illnesses.
Training opportunities includes participation in our weekly graduate seminar in adolescent health as well research and faculty development seminars, works-in-progress and training opportunities in health services research, STDs, quality improvement, public health research and grant writing. Within the Division of Adolescent Medicine, fellows have access to 11 interdisciplinary faculty, medical fellows and support staff. The Division has robust clinical and interdisciplinary research programs.
Applicants in any area of study (public health, health services research, psychology, sociology, social work, etc.) who are interested in an academic career with a research focus are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to candidates who demonstrate strong writing skills, robust data management and quantitative analysis training and have interests that align with research involving vulnerable populations. Potential applicants should submit a letter of application describing research background and how this background is consistent with this postdoctoral fellowship. Applications are currently being accepted and will be reviewed on a monthly basis.
