Position Summary:

The UW Division of Geriatrics/Wisconsin Alzheimer's Institute is seeking a full-time Research Specialist to coordinate research related activities for an Alzheimer's disease prevention project titled, "African Americans Fighting Alzheimer's in Midlife (AA-FAiM)." The AA-FAiM Project will examine midlife markers of Alzheimer's disease in African Americans in the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer's Prevention (WRAP) Study. This position will be based in Milwaukee at the Wisconsin Alzheimer's Institute Milwaukee Office (WAI MKE).

The incumbent will be responsible to work as the research specialist to lead the outreach and recruitment efforts for the WRAP AA-FAiM study at the Wisconsin Alzheimer's Institute Milwaukee Office and will report to the Outreach Program Director. While the research specialist's duties will be focused on work with African Americans and members of other under-represented groups (URG), the WRAP AA-FAiM research specialist will work as a member of the Milwaukee Outreach team focusing efforts on the African American study participants.

The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also 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
