The University of California, Davis, School of Medicine, Department of Public Health Sciences invites applications for an Assistant Researcher. The Professional Researcher develops and oversees their own independent, creative, and high-quality research program. He/she takes major responsibility and leadership for his/her programs. Generally, the candidate would be expected to secure funding as a Principal Investigator but may be funded as a co-PI within a large center or collaborative program grant on which many independent investigators are working, as long as it is clear that the activities led by the professional researcher within the larger project constitute his/her own independent research program. Appointees do not have teaching responsibilities.
We invite applications from prospective postdoctoral fellows to a postdoctoral training program in the epidemiology of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Fellows will work with faculty at four University of California campuses (UCLA, UC Davis, UCSF, and UC Irvine) on multiple research projects related to the epidemiology of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and cognitive aging. This program arises from collaborative projects of faculty members at the four campuses (Dr. María Corrada, UC Irvine; Dr. Paola Gilsanz, UCSF and Kaiser Permanente Northern California; Dr. Maria Glymour, Boston University, formerly UCSF; Dr. Elizabeth Rose Mayeda, UCLA; and Dr. Rachel Whitmer, UC Davis). The specific projects vary across campuses, but emphasize racial/ethnic inequalities, social determinants, vascular risk factors, and causal inference methods.
