Description of Fellowship:

The selected candidate will assist with research related to evaluating comprehensive community-based prevention strategies for primary prevention of ACEs (i.e., potentially traumatic experiences, such as child abuse and neglect and/or parental substance abuse, that occur before the age of 18) and subsequently opioid misuse.

Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will be involved in the following activities:

  • Analyze and disseminate ACEs-related YouGov Internet panel data collected in Summer/Fall of 2019
  • Collaborate with local public health agencies to conduct an environmental scan of existing evidence-based and evidence-informed programs addressing ACEs, opioid misuse and health equity in three U.S. communities
  • Collaborate with community organizers to evaluate the process and impact of community organizing in partnership with public health across three communities
  • Assist with social network analysis, policy evaluation, and the evaluation of norms change
  • Conduct secondary data analyses to better understand populations at disproportionate risk of ACEs, opioid misuse, and multiple forms of violence

This is a dynamic field of inquiry for DVP that requires flexibility to adapt quickly to related opportunities for scientific inquiry and consultation. The participant will also assist in related research areas that emerge as important, such as social determinants of health and equity, disabilities, and other issues that are identified as relevant to DVP or that represent extensions of the body of knowledge that emerges from the evaluation of comprehensive prevention strategies for ACEs. The fellow will assist in the preparation of scientific manuscripts, and presentation of empirical results at community meetings, scientific meetings and conferences. The participant may spend time on projects associated with data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) ACEs module, and, potentially, other databases, including U.S. Census data, Adolescent Health (Add Health), and social norms YouGov data.

Anticipated Appointment Start DateMay 15, 2019. Start date is flexible.
