Job Description


Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Implementation Science and HIV Prevention:

Jumpstart your professional career in Implementation Science research working with behavioral intervention researchers at the University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School (UMCMS). This is a 2-year post-doctoral fellowship focusing on implementation science research in HIV. The fellow will work on an NIH-funded national implementation and sustainability study in The Bahamas, and mHealth intervention projects (PrEP use, self-management of HIV and substance use, and stigma reduction) in Thailand and Zambia. The Bahamas study develops and evaluates theory-driven implementation strategies to sustain teacher implementation fidelity of evidence-based HIV interventions in 80 government primary and middle schools, and to evaluate the multilevel determinants of sustainability of effective HIV prevention programs. The mHealth projects adapt multicomponent effective mHealth interventions to improve uptake and adherence to HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in young Thai MSM and transgender women and to improve self-management of HIV and substance use in Zambian young adults. This research scholar position provides full funding with no teaching requirements. The fellow, with active mentoring, will work with a multi-disciplinary team to prepare grant submissions, write papers, and present at professional meetings. The fellow will be encouraged to seek funding for his/her own research projects. The fellow will primarily work with Bo Wang, PhD (implementation research scientist), and have the opportunity to work with other distinguished researchers at UMCMS, including those in our Division of Health Informatics and Implementation Research and Arlene Ash, PhD (Chief, Division of Biostatistics and Health Services Research)
