Junior Research Scientist (Part-Time)

Psychosocial Research Unit on Health, Aging and the Community (PRUHAC)

New York University College of Dentistry

The Psychosocial Research Unit on Health, Aging and the Community (PRUHAC) at New York University is a multidisciplinary research group conducting cutting edge, applied public health research. Established in 2010 to develop preventive and supportive public health services and programs to enhance well- being and functioning across the lifespan for diverse community-based populations, the unit is under the NYU College of Dentistry. It is the first program of its kind in a dental school. Directed by Victoria H. Raveis, PhD, a medical sociologist and social gerontologist, the unit is multidisciplinary. The grant-funded studies the unit conducts have utilized community-based participatory research (CBPR) and implementation of community-informed, evidence-based programs to inform the development of preventive and supportive services and programs for diverse community-based populations, address health equity across the life-span and enhance public health practice.

We are looking for an individual to assist with and perform a wide range of research-supportive and program development functions on an ongoing research project funded by New York State, Department of Health. This project's overall goal is to develop and pilot on-line a patient-centered curriculum for primary care practitioners to facilitate their survivorship care to low health literacy, diverse, populations. The candidate will work closely with Dr. Raveis, liaise with the community partner (an advocacy and support organization for breast cancer survivors) and external collaborators.

Qualifications

High-level verbal and written communication skills are essential. The ideal candidate for this job is resourceful, a good problem solver, organized and detail oriented. Prior experience in program development is a strength. A background in public health or applied social science is also a strength. Experience with social media platforms and web-based technology is strongly preferred. Bachelor's degree or equivalent required.
