Health Disparities in Aging/Healthy Aging Researcher

We strongly encourage people of color, transgender and non-binary people, sexual minorities, people with disabilities,
and women to apply. We welcome everyone to join our department.

The Department of Medical Social Sciences at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine seeks a full-time
non-tenure-eligible Team Scientist at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor to join the MSS Lifespan Positive
Health Promotion Hub (Co-led by Drs. Judith Moskowitz and Dan Mroczek). The hub focuses on aging and lifespan
health, including examining and mitigation of health disparities that may cumulate over the life course (e.g., cumulative
disadvantage effects on health) and interventions to promote healthy aging and well-being.
The WHO has declared the 2020s the Decade of Healthy Aging. The salience of aging-related health issues will continue
as both the proportion and absolute number numbers of older adults continue to rise in the U.S. and globally.
Candidates with expertise in behavioral clinical trials, biostatistics, community-engaged research, or other qualitative
and quantitative research in promotion of healthy aging are encouraged to apply. In addition, individuals who have work
or education experience with under-represented groups including LGBTQ communities, communities of color, and/or
organizations serving these communities are particularly encouraged to apply. Typically, team scientists provide critical
expertise to a program or group of research teams as a co-investigator and are also encouraged to pursue
programmatically aligned independent funding as appropriate.

To apply: Applications should include a CV and a cover letter explaining fit with this position; relevant work or
educational experiences. Also upload this completed list of references form to suggest the names of individuals who
could write letters of reference on your behalf. All applicants should include in their cover letter a clear statement about
