health research organization funded by the Department of Health and Human Services (e.g., the Office of Adolescent Health; the National Institutes of Health) to design and implement national epidemiological surveys and prevention programming. Dr. Ybarra has
a long track record of mentorship, federal funding, and peer-reviewed publication.


Eligible candidates should have a doctorate in related sciences (i.e., social, behavioral, health) and academic interests in public health and/or health communications, which should be

quantitative statistical modeling.

opportunities, and independent grant submissions. The position provides exceptional mentored training opportunities to develop research skills and collaborate with a dynamic, federally funded, multidisciplinary team of investigators. Conference travel and
other training experiences also will be supported.
