COVID-19 Job Opportunities

The CUNY Institute for Implementation Science in Population Health

The CUNY ISPH has a rapidly growing COVID-19 research portfolio, and is recruiting for a postdoctoral fellow, whose work will be focused on the impacts of US COVID-19 pandemic and public health response.  The initial focus of the fellow will be on analyses and manuscripts based on the recently funded national CHASING COVID Cohort, launched in late March 2020. There will be opportunities to contribute to and advance future studies in development.

The ideal start date is August 1 or sooner with a one year hire commitment.  Further extension is dependent on funding availability, performance and independent research aligned with the ISPH.  In the first year, this can be a remote position, as long as the fellow is authorized to work in the United States.
