Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the Transitions to Adulthood Center for Research

This position will begin in September 2022 and continue through August 2024. The fellow will be partnered with Transitions ACR faculty mentors to define their area of research focus which should build upon existing Center research. Potential mentors include Maryann Davis, PhD and Marsha Ellison, PhD. Fellows will participate in ongoing research and grant submissions, will complete pilot projects, have opportunities for publications and presentations using new and existing datasets, and will prepare independent research grants. Current active research includes funding through NIDILRR, NIDA, NIMH, and other agencies.

This post-doctoral fellowship is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research, (NIDILRR), United States Departments of Health and Human Services (NIDILRR grant number 90RTEM0005). Strong candidates for the Rehabilitation Researcher track will have research backgrounds in education, special education, psychiatric rehabilitation, vocational counseling, occupational therapy, psychology, sociology or other social sciences and a demonstrated interest in rehabilitation research. Candidates must plan to pursue a career in research, preferably at an academic or research institution, and should have some prior experience with conducting research.

This fellowship position will be part of a cohort of postdoctoral fellows across several areas including implementation science, general mental health services and intervention research, and women’s health and integrated care. The fellow will also have access to faculty within the Population and Quantitative Health Sciences Department and other faculty mentors within the UMass system based on career aspirations of the fellow.
