Postdoctoral Fellowship in Aging and Health
University Park, Pennsylvania, United States
Penn State University
The Pennsylvania State University’s Center for Healthy Aging invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow to help carry out NIH-funded studies of daily stress and chronic illness in midlife and older adulthood. This is an opportunity for an emerging scholar to engage with a productive team of investigators who use intensive longitudinal methods (e.g., ecological momentary assessment and longitudinal panel studies) to examine individual and dyadic processes in adult health and development. Primary responsibilities will include data management and analysis; preparation of manuscripts, grant proposals, and conference presentations; and participation in interdisciplinary research groups that design new studies. The fellow will have opportunities to publish, and access to exceptional resources to facilitate his or her independent research. Qualified individuals will have a Ph.D. in the social, behavioral or health sciences; relevant research experience; strong statistical and writing skills; and the capacity to work closely with others. The appointment will be for one year, with likely funding for at least one additional year depending on productivity. The position provides salary and benefits consistent with those for NIH postdoctoral fellows. To apply, please send (1) a letter of application indicating research interests, career goals, and experience; (2) a curriculum vita; and (3) three letters of professional reference to Ann Shuey, Center for Healthy Aging, 118 Henderson Building, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA 16802. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. This post-doctoral position is scheduled to begin in June 2012. For more information, please contact Martin Sliwinski (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Lynn Martire (email@example.com). Penn State is committed to affirmative action, equal opportunity and the diversity of its workforce.
