The Research Program on Children and Global Adversity is seeking a post-doctoral Diversity Fellow applicant whose interests and career goals for training align with the activities of our recently-funded NICHD R01 in Sierra Leone to study the intergenerational effects of war on mental health and child development. Interested potential applicants with a background in quantitative research skills (field based survey data collection, early childhood assessment, psychometric and multivariate analyses of child and family mental health outcomes) as well as qualitative research skills are encouraged to be in touch with Dayo Spencer Walters () and Dr. Theresa Betancourt (Theresa_Betancourt@harvard.edu). The RPCGA and the potential fellow will then work together to co-construct a proposal for funding to NICHD comprising a two-year training and mentored research plan aligned with their career goals and project activities. Of particular interest is the topic of intimate partner and family violence. Applicants must come from an under-represented minority group and be US citizens or green card holders. Willingness to travel for field work as well as prior field based research in Africa or other low-resource settings is preferred.
