University of California, Irvine (UCI) School of Education is looking for a postdoctoral scholar/project manager to work with PI's Dr. Stephanie Reich (UCI) and Dr. Natasha Cabrera (University of Maryland) on a 5-year NICHD-funded family intervention targeting low-income, 2-parent families in Southern California and Washington DC. A background in infant/child behavioral development is highly desirable. Experience with project management and intervention science methods are appreciated as well as training in data management and statistics. Moreover, as this project involves English and Spanish speaking families, fluency in Spanish is required.
Responsibilities The position involves assistance at all levels of the project from recruitment to dissemination. Importantly, the position will help coordinate research activities across both sites and actively work with families and project staff. The postdoctoral scholar will be expected to collaborate with the PIs on peer-reviewed publications. Additionally, since numerous undergraduate and graduate students work on the project, the post-doctoral scholar will be expected to mentor and support more junior scholars. While there are project management expectations, the position should advance the candidate's academic career.
Requirements: Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent in Education, Psychology, Human Development, Public Health, or related field. As this project involves English and Spanish speaking families, fluency in Spanish is required. Writing experience and a publication record is required. Desirable qualifications include excellent written and oral communication; interest and experience with working with families and/or young children; and expertise in research design and methodology.
Please include a cover letter explaining your relevant background and interest in this project, CV, and names of three references (please do not solicit letters).
Inquiries may be directed to Stephanie Reich (949-824-5970 or email@example.com).
