  • Post Doctoral Fellow Measurement of Structural Racial Discrimination Across the Life Course

    The grant entitled “Reducing racial disparities in AD/ADRD: Addressing structural discrimination and resilience” at the Johns Hopkins University announces an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow.

    The fellowship will be focused on the measurement of structural racial discrimination across the life course. The postdoctoral fellow will also leverage existing data bases to work on projects to determine the impact of structural discrimination and structural resilience on health outcomes across the life course. Both of these aims entail compelling quantitative challenges, including theory-informed measurement modeling and dimension reduction, causal inference, complex longitudinal and systems modeling in a lifecourse context, and intervention study design. As a result, the fellowship will provide outstanding opportunities for scholarship to develop methodology in statistics and data science in the context of a critically important societal issue.

    The long-term vision our work is to erase racial disparities in Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease related dementias (AD/ADRD) burden. The objectives in this DP1 are to (1) develop a measure of structural discrimination and resilience (focusing specifically on African Americans), (2) disseminate the novel instrument to NIH-funded studies for data collection, and (3) develop tailored interventions with feedback from all stakeholders to reduce racial disparities in AD/ADRD prevalence and burden.

    Significance: 

    African Americans are more than twice as likely to have AD/ADRD as Whites. Not attributed to genes, this is a preventable gap in one of humans’ most feared diseases. Systemic inequality caused by deeply rooted factors like structural racial discrimination shape the distribution of resources and our individual habits like smoking, and diet. AD/ADRD prevention research often focuses on individual habits rather than underlying structural factors. We aim to change the focus of AD/ADRD prevention and experience to address structural factors but there is currently no way to measure structural racial discrimination or the structural resilience that could help individuals, families and communities compensate. 

    The Johns Hopkins University provides a rich interdisciplinary environment with a wide variety of community partnerships, and offer an abundance of seminars, invited lectures, and opportunities for collaboration with faculty across disciplines and departments.

    Under the direction of Karen Bandeen-Roche, PhD, Sarah L. Szanton, PhD, ANP and Roland J. Thorpe, Jr., PhD, the postdoctoral fellow will have ample opportunities to write publications and grants to advance the science of structural racial discrimination. They will help lead publications focusing on methodological approaches to developing the measurement of the structural discrimination, the development of the structural discrimination and structural resilience measures per se, and evaluate the implications of structural discrimination and resilience for health across the lifecourse. The primary responsibility of the postdoctoral fellow will be to collaborate with investigators and PhD students on this team to these ends. The Postdoctoral Fellow also will provide technical assistance and support as needed. They will also gain leadership through data management and analysis; preparation of manuscripts, grant proposals, and conference presentations; and collaborating and engaging with interdisciplinary research groups.

    The Postdoctoral fellow 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 receive individualized mentoring and training to develop the skills and competencies needed to become successful independent investigators, advance the health of populations, conduct independent methodological research directed to research questions with high substantive impact, and design, implement, and evaluate innovative policy 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.

    Qualifications

    A PhD in biostatistics/statistics, quantitative psychology, or an equivalent quantitative field is required. Fellowships are open to eligible US citizens and international applicants. Women, racial/ethnic minorities, sexual/gender minorities, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
