Fellowship at the National Center for Productive Aging and Work (NCPAW)

The candidate will serve as a Research Fellow in the newly established National Center for Productive Aging and Work (NCPAW) at the NIOSH campus in Cincinnati, Ohio.  NCPAW is a center within the Total Worker Health™ Office at NIOSH and shares a commitment to improving worker health through interventions that integrate both health protection (safety) and health promotion efforts. The Fellow will actively contribute to the development of NCPAW in several ways including: conducting a needs assessment of current aging research and workplace guidance products, developing translational products on aging and work for the general public, assisting with internal and external partnership development, and conducting both quantitative and qualitative research on healthy aging in the workplace.  It is estimated that approximately 50% of the Fellow’s time will be spent on research-related activities, with the remainder distributed between translational and partnership development activities.

The Fellowship is for a minimum of one year, with the strong possibility of a second year, contingent on funding.  A Ph.D. or equivalent graduate degree is desired, preferably with research experience and graduate training in occupational health, organizational psychology, and/or aging.  Interested candidates should contact either Dr. James Grosch (jkg9@cdc.gov; 513-533-8167) or Dr. Juliann Scholl (xhn3@cdc.gov; 513-533-8178) for additional information.  Applicants should submit a current vita and the names of three references to Jim or Juliann by June 15, 2015.
