Post-Doctoral Research Associate, Occupational Segregation and Older Adult Health

Posted: 3/4/2019 (Employment)

UCLA and Princeton are recruiting for one newly funded post-doctoral fellow for a collaborative project on the role of occupational stratification by race/ethnicity and immigrant status and its effects on older adult health in the United States. A main focus is on the higher rate of functional limitations by age among the native-born and immigrant Latino/Hispanic population.  This position can be held either at the Office of Population Research, Princeton University, or at the California Center for Population Research, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The successful applicant will collaborate with researchers at both institutions and also have some time for his/her own research.

Successful candidates MUST have advanced statistical modeling experience (e.g., complex growth curve models, multilevel models, multistate processes) and excellent statistical programming skills (preferably in Stata and R) plus graduate training in a sociology, demography, or another social science. Strong writing skills, the ability to get things done, and the habit of working in a collegial manner are also important.  Knowledge of the research literature on immigration and on the social determinants of health is a real plus, but not absolutely essential.
