Hajat Publishes on Employment and Educational Inequities in Mental Health

In collaboration with several authors, CSDE Affiliate Anjum Hajat recently published “Differential employment quality and educational inequities in mental health: A causal mediation analysis” in Epidemiology. Using information on working-age adults from the 2001-2019 Panel Study of Income Dynamics, the authors construct a composite measure of employment quality via principal component analysis.

Sign up for Limited Submissions Notifications Through UW Office of Research

The UW’s Office of Research manages all limited submission opportunities, including notifying the research community about them and evaluating which submissions move forward from UW to the funder.  If you’d like to be alerted to those opportunities sign up for their listserv or visit their web page: http://depts.washington.edu/research/funding/limited-submissions

Many federal agencies and foundations offer grants, awards, and fellowships that limit the number of applications that can come from one institution. To increase the chances of the UW succeeding in such limited submission opportunity applications, the Office of Research has established a procedure to review pre-proposals in a timely fashion.
