Postdoctoral Fellowships in Community-Engaged Research (CEnR) and Qualitative Evaluation

 Location: University of Maryland Baltimore, Baltimore, MD

 Description:  An exciting postdoctoral fellowship opportunity is available with The PATIENTS Program at the University of Maryland Baltimore (UMB).  The primary mentor is Professor C. Daniel Mullins within the Pharmaceutical Health Services Research (PHSR) Department.  Fellowships within the PHSR department provide multidisciplinary, advanced training to health services researchers and clinicians and prepare fellows for positions in academia, government, the pharmaceutical or insurance industries, and consulting.

 Fellows in The PATIENTS Program engage in qualitative evaluation and mixed-methods community-research (CEnR) with activities funded by AHRQ, FDA, NIH, PCORI, and other federal and state of Maryland government agencies, foundations, and private corporations. Training includes mentored research and manuscript and grant-writing experiences; optional activities include coursework in CEnR or Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR).  Fellows interact extensively with community partners as well as other researchers as part the portfolio of over 20 projects supported by The PATIENTS Program (www.patients.umaryland.edu).

 Fellows receive a competitive salary and benefits. 

Qualifications: Strong focus group/key informant interviewing and qualitative analysis skills and an ability to work across diverse community settings are required.  Candidates should have excellent communication, organizational, and time-management skills. Experience with CEnR or community-based participatory research (CBPR) among underserved populations is desired.  A PhD in a health-related discipline is desired, but clinicians with qualitative research training and/or experience are also encouraged to apply.

 How to Apply:  Applicants should submit a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, writing sample, and three letters of recommendation.  Review of applications will start immediately and continue until the selected candidate is identified. The start date is flexible across Spring or Summer 2021.
