This position is part of a multidisciplinary and cross-college initiative (“1855 Professorships”) focused on quantitative analysis to advance one of the central objectives of MSU’s strategic plan: reducing health disparities. Hires in this initiative will build long-term capacity for health disparities research at MSU and forge critical synergies between our department and other units on campus including Economics and Psychology. We are thus seeking candidates with expertise that can be applied to evaluating programs and policies to address health disparities. Quantitative researchers with the skills to do this work come from a broad range of disciplines. Applicable areas of expertise include but are not limited to design and analyses of quasi-experimental and experimental (randomized trials) data, comparative effectiveness, and causal inference. Excellent verbal and written communication skills and the motivation to act as a team member in collaborative research ventures are also required.

The department has 26 faculty conducting research in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Research interests in methods and applications include health services research, longitudinal and correlated data analysis, survival analysis, statistical genetics, causal inference, and analyses of non-experimental or quasi-experimental data. A vibrant collaboration exists in research within the department and with other units throughout the University. Currently, in addition to their research interests, our faculty participate actively in research with colleagues in Economics, Geography, Anthropology, Statistics & Probability, Food Science & Nutrition, Veterinary Medicine, Osteopathic Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health.

Mental Health Research Network NIMH-funded T32 Postdoctoral Fellowship in
Mental Health Services Research

Henry Ford Health (HFH, Detroit, MI) and Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC, Oakland, CA) are jointly recruiting a post-doctoral fellow for a NIMH-supported T32 two-year fellowship with the NIMH- funded Mental Health Research Network (MHRN), to commence in the summer/fall of 2023. Aspiring independent researchers will be trained broadly in health systems/health services research with a focus on mental health conditions and services, including suicide prevention. Areas of particular interest and training will be in clinical interventions, healthcare service delivery, big data, implementation science, comorbidities, health equity, and health policy. The overall goal of the program is to support fellows in the transition to becoming independent mental health services researchers able to pursue NIMH-funding to support research within health system settings.
