Job Duties

Responsibilities

Under the supervision of the Principal Investigator, the Principal Public Administrative Analyst will serve as Project Scientist for the Life Course Intervention Research Network (LCI-RN). This new effort is funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) and based at the UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families, and Communities and will build and operate a multi-site infrastructure that cultivates and leverages the collective intelligence of a growing and generative life course intervention research community (including scientists, methodologists, practitioners, family members, and community residents) in order to identify new and innovative ways of improving life course trajectories for women and children, with a particular emphasis on reducing health disparities among diverse and vulnerable populations.
The planned and emergent intervention studies to be incubated by the network will meet specified criteria to be developed, including 1) being grounded in the life course health sciences that are demonstrating that many of the pathways to health and disease have their origins in the early part of the life course and are highly susceptible to the influence of social and environmental experiences and exposures, and 2) addressing one or more of the priorities identified in the Life Course Intervention Research Agenda (LCIRA) to be developed under the project. The collaborating research entities that will be part of the network will be comprised of some of the country¡¦s most innovative and important investigators who are doing path breaking work with the potential to substantially improve the health and development of children and families.
The position offers the right candidate a substantial career building opportunity to be a part of the design and implementation of a wide variety of studies, to produce multiple peer-reviewed publications, and to potentially pursue his or her own research, as well as to work with some of the country’s leading experts.
