The University of Wisconsin’s Center for Health Disparities Research (CHDR) invites applications for research analysts to join new and ongoing research initiatives.
The Center for Health Disparities Research (CHDR), led by Dr. Amy Kind, invites applications from highly motivated individuals to join our dynamic, growing, and multidisciplinary team. The Center, as well as the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end, in itself, and as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
As a Research Analyst with CHDR, you will have the opportunity to contribute to research projects with far-reaching influence, including the largest study of its kind on social determinants of health in the context of Alzheimer’s Disease. Broadly, our work is focused on mechanisms of health disparities-the ways fundamental factors such as race, ethnicity, and identity interact with a complex array of geopolitical, socioeconomic, health care, cultural, social, psychological, physiological, genetic, and cellular factors to produce different population health outcomes. Because this work requires collaboration and expertise across disciplines, Research Analysts with CHDR regularly work with investigators and colleagues from departments across campus and partner institutions.
Given the nature of our work, we appreciate diversity and respect the many differences and similarities in the workplace, including the varied perspectives, approaches, and competencies of coworkers and populations that we serve. For this position, we are especially interested in receiving applications from candidates familiar with public data resources and repositories; the use of archival, genealogical, and historical research methods; and/or candidates with training or experience in the disciplines of history, genealogy, sociology, information science, justice, population health, or related fields.
