University of California, Irvine (UCI) School of Education is looking for a postdoctoral scholar to work with Dr. Stephanie Reich (UCI), Dr. Greg Duncan, and Dr. Natasha Cabrera (University of Maryland) on a NICHD-funded family intervention targeting low-income, 2-parent families in Southern California and Washington DC. Strong quantitative skills and a background in infant/child behavioral development is highly desirable. Data collection is almost complete and work will involve data management, analysis and dissemination. As this is a bilingual project fluency in Spanish is a plus.
The position involves assistance at all level of the project from data collection to dissemination. Importantly, the position will be mentored by investigators at two sites and the post-doctoral scholar will work with project staff, students and families. As the grant is in its final year, the postdoctoral scholar will be expected to collaborate with the PIs on peer-reviewed publications. Additionally, since numerous undergraduate and graduate students work on the project, the post-doctoral scholar will be expected to mentor and support more junior scholars. While there are data management expectations, the position should advance the candidate’s academic career.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent in Education, Psychology, Human Development, Public Health, or related field. Experience with longitudinal data is a must and data management skills as required. As this project involves English and Spanish speaking families, fluency in Spanish is helpful. Writing experience and a publication record is required. Desirable qualifications include excellent written and oral communication; interest and experience with working with families and/or young children; and expertise in longitudinal data analysis.
