CHDR Seeks Scientist to Join Research Team

The University of Wisconsin’s Center for Health Disparities Research (CHDR)  invites applications for a Scientist to join new and ongoing research initiatives.


Led by founding director Amy Kind, MD, PhD, CHDR is committed to discovering and advancing innovations toward the elimination of health disparities.

The Scientist will serve as an integral member of a growing and dynamic multidisciplinary team, contributing to CHDR’s varied scientific and analytic activities on the social determinants of health and related disparities. This includes detailed involvement in The Neighborhoods Study, a NIA-funded, national 22-site initiative which seeks to understand how social exposures from across the life-course influence overall brain health and Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

Within this initiative, the Scientist will help identify research problems and participate in the design, implementation, and analysis of studies. They will also disseminate research results through the preparation and submission of manuscripts for publication in major scientific journals and the presentation of findings at local and national scientific meetings.

This position represents an opportunity for significant professional and scientific growth within a collaborative, supportive research environment. The Scientist will also support the education and professional growth of other members and stakeholders of CHDR, including research specialists, graduate students, fellows and post-doctoral researchers, and junior faculty members.

The Center for Health Disparities Research (CHDR) in the School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity and recognizes its vital role in eliminating health disparities. We value inclusivity and respect the many differences and similarities in the workplace, including the varied perspectives, approaches, and competencies of coworkers and populations that we serve.

Diverse perspectives strengthen our team and its impact, and we encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We enthusiastically invite BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ candidates, women, persons with disabilities, military service members and veterans, and members of other marginalized communities to apply.
