NICHD demography position-ANNOUNCEMENT CLOSES JANUARY 31, 2019

24 Jan 2019 11:08 PM | Gerald Shoultz (Administrator)

From Rebecca Clark at NIH/NICHD:

The NICHD is trying to fill on short notice a demography position for a Program Official in the Population Dynamics Branch. This job announcement closes on Thursday, January 31, 2019, one week from this posting date!  Information about the position and relevant links can be found at Jobs at NICHD, https://www.nichd.nih.gov/about/jobs ; click on the "Population Dynamics Branch (PDB), DER" link to find the following.


NICHD Division of Extramural Research, Population Dynamics Branch

PDB supports research, research training, and data collection in demography, reproductive health, and population health, with an emphasis on research based on population-representative samples. In demography, the branch supports research on the scientific study of human populations, including fertility, mortality and morbidity, migration, population distribution, nuptiality, family demography, population growth and decline, and the causes and consequences of demographic change. In reproductive health, the branch supports behavioral and social science research on sexually transmitted diseases, HIV/AIDS, family planning, and infertility. In population health, the branch supports data collection and research on human health, productivity, behavior, and development at the population level, using such methods as inferential statistics, natural experiments, policy experiments, statistical modeling, and gene/environment interaction studies using non-truncated measures of environmental exposure.

The candidate should have successfully completed all requirements for a Ph.D. (or equivalent doctoral degree) in an academic field of the health or related sciences (e.g., demography, economics, or population geography) allied to health or health-related research. Background in demography, the social determinants of health, analysis of longitudinal cohorts, and the collection and analysis of population representative samples also would be a plus.

NICHD is using multiple announcements to fill this position: The first two links are the global recruitment program announcements; the last two links are the social and behavioral scientist announcements. Please note the links differ if you are a federal employee. This is not a supervisory position.
