The Center for Dissemination and Implementation at Washington University in St. Louis seeks a post-doctoral research associate to conduct implementation research as a part of an emerging multi-sectoral effort to enhance prevention and treatment of HIV in St. Louis.
On December 1, 2019, St. Louis joined the leading edge of municipal public health efforts combatting AIDS when Mayor Lyda Krusen and Country Executive Sam Paige joined the Fast Track Cities Initiative, sponsored by the International Association of AIDS Care Physicians, and committed to ambitious but feasible targets for HIV control in St. Louis.
The Center for Dissemination and Implementation in the Institute for Public Health will work closely with government and community partners to support this emerging effort, including bringing expertise in implementation research to support this effort.
Candidates for this position will draw from epidemiology, social and network science, health communications, and organizational theory and apply perspectives from dissemination and implementation research to conduct high-impact research on the drivers of the HIV epidemic in St. Louis and identify scalable, adoptable and impactful solutions.
This position will involve significant time with the team at the Department of Health and therefore the candidate will gain hands on experience in how public health works in the real world. The candidate will be supervised by faculty mentors at WashU, including Director of Center for Dissemination and Implementation, and therefore acquire leading-edge scientific perspectives and methods in implementation research. The candidate will be expected to participate and present at a number of scholarly activities at WashU. The position will be funded for up to two years, with the possibility of a third.
Ph.D. degree level.
