Postdoctoral Research Associate

Stony Brook University is inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on a 5-year, NIH-funded study in Malawi to examine the role of adverse childhood experiences in shaping divergent HIV risk trajectories during adolescence.

The Postdoctoral Associate will work under the co-supervision of the two Principal Investigators (Dr. Rachel Kidman at Stony Brook University and Dr. Hans-Peter Kohler at the University of Pennsylvania). The candidate will be involved in all aspects of data collection in Malawi; will contribute to data analyses; and will be expected to prepare research manuscripts and presentations.  The position will travel to Malawi to oversee fieldwork and liaise with local research teams. The candidate will be encouraged to develop their own research questions within the scope of the project. The starting date will be spring or early summer 2017, depending on the candidate’s availability.
