Post-Doctoral Training in Promoting Equity in Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Disease
Overview: The Steve Hicks School of Social Work and the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin are recruiting two postdoctoral fellows through a T32 award from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). The goal of the postdoctoral training program is to increase diversity in behavioral, population, and implementation science research to promote health equity in cardiovascular and pulmonary disease. The program will enhance inter-professional education efforts already underway at UT Austin with involvement from mentors across the Schools of Social Work, Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health, the Population Research Center, and the College of Pharmacy. This is a two-year fellowship, contingent upon satisfactory progress, with a start date of 8/15/19 (an earlier start date, however, is negotiable).
Postdoctoral fellows will further their research and training agendas through formal mentorship and coursework, seminars, conferences, and other career development activities. Each fellow will have a primary mentor assisted by other mentors in a team approach. They will work with established investigators on research projects and be expected to prepare and submit manuscripts for publication, present at local and national conferences, and develop and submit at least one grant proposal by the end of the fellowship term. Fellows will be trained in community-based participatory research methods and population health science. They will implement evidence based interventions and/or produce scientific evidence with the ultimate goal of increasing health equity in heart and lung diseases, including their behavioral risk factors. Dell Medical School is uniquely designed to promote population health while the Steve Hicks School of Social Work is rooted in an equity lens and has a strong community-based focus; furthermore, the Schools have an established and successful partnership.
