The Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is inviting applications for a postdoctoral position funded as part of its NICHD-funded T32 Population Training Program. The overall goal of the program is to create a cadre of future leaders in social science and public health disciplines with the subject matter expertise, interdisciplinary orientation, population perspective, and data skills to address and have an impact on pressing issues in demography, population health, and reproductive health. Eligible applicants are US citizens or permanent residents with a PhD in a social science or public health discipline (at the time of appointment). Deadline December 8, 2019.
We are now soliciting applications for the Carolina Population Center’s Biosocial Training Program. The program aims to promote and support interdisciplinary training of postdoctoral scholars from both the social sciences and biological/health sciences. Trainees will have the opportunity to receive interdisciplinary mentorship and training in a wide array of content areas, ranging from social inequalities to biological processes. Trainees will enter from their respective disciplines and will identify a co-preceptor team comprised of a mentor from their home discipline and another representing their new interdisciplinary interest area from among the current training faculty. Application submission is open until Saturday, December 1, 2018 with a start date of April 2019. Questions? Please contact: Michelle Collins (firstname.lastname@example.org)
