    The Center’s mission is to improve the health and function of people with disabilities and their caregivers by adapting and scaling two award winning evidence-based programs for children and older adults with disabilities (Chicago Parent Program [CPP] and CAPABLE); and to design new approaches using key attributes of effective and sustainable programs to ensure program effectiveness, relevance, utility, and scalability. The School of Nursing and the Johns Hopkins University provide a rich interdisciplinary environment with a wide variety of clinical and community partnerships, and offer an abundance of seminars, invited lectures, and opportunities for collaboration with faculty across disciplines and departments.

S/he will help lead the implementation and evaluation of three behavioral interventions using the Community Aging in Place-Advancing Better Living for Elders (CAPABLE) framework funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). The overarching goal of these projects is to improve the health and function of people with disability and their caregivers using human-centered design methods and a multi-level resilience framework.

    The primary responsibility of the postdoctoral fellow will be to collaborate with the implementation science team, technical assistance team, and the Principal Investigator (Dr. Sarah Szanton) to carry out an array of activities, including implementation and quality improvement activities, and to act as a liaison between project staff, trainers, and community partners receiving training and/or technical assistance. The post-doc will provide technical assistance and support as needed to promote quality improvement. S/he will also learn leadership through data management and analysis; preparation of manuscripts, grant proposals, and conference presentations; and leadership of interdisciplinary research groups.

    Postdoctoral fellows will gain training in the application of Human Centered Design principles to behavioral interventions. They will have access to exceptional resources to facilitate the conduct of their own research including multiple opportunities to publish and assistance with grant-writing or project planning for the next stage of their research careers. The postdoctoral fellow will be appointed to a faculty mentor and receive individualized mentoring and training to develop the skills and competencies needed to become successful independent investigators, advance the health of older populations, and to design, implement, and evaluate innovative behavioral interventions. 

    The initial appointment will be for one year, with the potential for funding to be extended an additional year. Decisions regarding Fellowship extensions will be based on scholarly productivity, mid-year and year-end progress reports. The position provides salary and benefits consistent with NIH postdoctoral fellows.
