Postdoctoral Fellowship in Life-span Health within the Family System
University of Utah

Post-Doctoral Fellow needed for projects examining how the family system can be a vehicle for the promotion of health and dealing with chronic illnesses across the life span as part of a consortium on Life-Span Health within the Family System. The fellow would work with an interdisciplinary team of investigators across the Departments of Psychology, Pediatrics, Physical Therapy, Family and Consumer Studies, Sociology, Center on Aging, and Huntsman Cancer Institute. The consortium is working toward an innovative model of health that utilizes the family system as a way to promote preventive health behaviors, to identify the joint genetic and socio-environmental risks for chronic illness, and to support health management behaviors in order to improve the health and health care of family members across generations (e.g., children, adolescents, parents, grandparents). Ideal candidates would have background and interests in one or more of the following: pediatric psychology, diabetes self-management, adult development and aging, chronic illness during adulthood, and longitudinal research and analysis. Strong quantitative skills are desirable in longitudinal data analysis, SEM, and multi-level modeling. Responsibilities include working closely with consortium members on data analysis, grant preparation, and preparation of manuscripts and the initiation of new projects. Applications will be accepted until position is filled; position would start August 15, 2014.

Applications include a vita, three letters of recommendation, and relevant (p)reprints and can be sent to Dr. Berg
