We also encourage applications from candidates committed to interdisciplinarity (i.e., working with colleagues across different subfields and disciplines). Of special interest are candidates who can further the University’s efforts to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion. The postdoctoral researcher will be expected to participate at all levels of the work, from participant recruitment, data collection, and development of coding and analysis plans to data analysis and dissemination. The postdoctoral researcher will work with a team of graduate and undergraduate students, and post-bac research assistants, and attend regular meetings with the collaborative research team. They will gain valuable experience implementing research in informal settings using qualitative and quantitative methods. The postdoctoral researcher will participate in dissemination activities for academic and nonacademic audiences. Qualifications:
