Postdoctoral Research Training Program

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

The Center for AIDS Intervention Research (CAIR) at the Medical College of Wisconsin is seeking qualified applicants for a two-year National Research Service Award (NRSA) postdoctoral research training program in HIV prevention research.  We are looking for individuals who currently have or who are about to receive a PhD, PsyD, DrPH, EdD, MD, JD or other doctoral degree.  Persons with interests in HIV prevention research and backgrounds in psychology, public health, anthropology, sociology, medicine, economics, or other relevant fields are encouraged to apply.  Previous experience in HIV prevention research is not required. The application deadline for fellowships beginning in Summer 2017 is December 15, 2016.

This mentor-based, project-oriented program provides fellows with the opportunity to work with nationally recognized scientists on projects including

  •        Behavioral interventions with persons living with and at risk for HIV infection including men who have sex with men, US immigrants, and gang-involved youth;
  •        Criminal HIV exposure, housing, and public health law and policy studies;
  •        Social network analysis;
  •        Cost effectiveness analysis;
  •        Program evaluation;  
  •        Innovative methods for data collection and data analysis

CAIR is an internationally-renowned social science research center that has prepared numerous postdoctoral fellows for successful careers in research and public health leadership.  The CAIR Fellowship Program combines seminars, conferences, and other educational opportunities with individualized, one-on-one mentoring by CAIR faculty.  Postdoctoral fellows are integrated into existing research projects and are mentored to help them develop their own program of independent research and establish a record of scholarly productivity.  Fellows have the opportunity to develop skills in manuscript writing/publishing; grant writing; research team management; data management and analysis; and professional development and job seeking skills.
