Postdoctoral Fellowship on Qualitative Methods for Implementation Science in the Prevention, Screening and Treatment of Heart, Lung, and Blood Health Disorders
Location: New Haven, CT
Internal Number: 95240
The Center for Methods in Implementation and Prevention Science (CMIPS) in the Yale School of Public Health and the Yale School of Medicine are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on Qualitative Methods for Implementation Science in Heart, Lung, and Blood Health Promotion to contribute to research advancing the use and development of qualitative methods in implementation science research. Expertise in implementation science theories, models and frameworks, and/or interest in gaining expertise in these and their application to implementation science are important aspects of this Fellowship. Current projects that may be of interest to applicants include (but are not limited to) qualitative and implementation science research on integration of hypertension screening and treatment into HIV clinics in Sub-Saharan Africa; reduction of cardiometabolic risk through improvements in the workplace food and physical activity environment in India, Nepal and South Africa; developing rapid approaches for qualitative research in global multilingual settings, a systematic review identifying trends and gaps in qualitative methods use in implementation research, and developing qualitative approaches to complement digital health technology implementation. The Fellow will have the opportunity to pursue a Masters in Health Science focused on implementation science through the Yale Medical School, supported by this training grant.
We invite scholars from diverse backgrounds to apply for this Fellowship. The Fellow should be prepared to address critical gaps in knowledge by 1) conducting research to inform the development, implementation, and evaluation of qualitative methods in intervention-based or implementation research focused on the prevention, screening and treatment of heart, lung and blood disorders, 2) innovating new and improved qualitative methodological approaches, and 3) provide technical assistance and training to other scholars, students, and communities in the use of qualitative and implementation science approaches to research. The primary goal of the Fellowship is to support the further career development of a scholar with the potential to become an innovative research leader working to enhance qualitative and implementation science methods. We seek scholars who can publish at the highest level, reach the widest audience, and impact both their substantive topical field, and the methodological field. The postdoctoral fellow will receive mentorship and support from CMIPS, Yale School of Public Health and Yale Medical School leadership and staff and closely collaborate on projects.
To apply, please provide a cover letter outlining qualifications specific to this description, a paragraph outlining two potential ideas for qualitative methods innovation in health intervention research, your academic CV, and the names and emails of 3 individuals who could serve as references via the application portal. This is a 100% FTE position using the standard NIH postdoctoral position salary range.
