Career Opportunities with FFCWS

Postdoctoral Research Associate with the Notterman Lab at Princeton University

A postdoctoral or more senior research position is available in the Department of Molecular Biology and the Office of Population Research at Princeton University to study the social determinants of young adult cardiovascular health as well as genetic, epigenetic and environmental interactions. The postdoc will collaborate with researchers to analyze newly collected biosocial data - The Cardiovascular Health Among Young Adults Study (FF-CHAYA) -  obtained from 22 US cities between Sept. 2021 and Sept 2023.

FF-CHAYA is a follow-up data collection effort for participants in the Future of Families and Child Wellbeing Study (FFCWS). FFCWS is a longitudinal survey that includes extensive data on children from seven waves from birth through age 22, along with genetic and epigenetic markers, and comprises a disproportionate number of minorities and low-income families. At age 22, participants in FF-CHAYA provided information on their medical history and health-related behaviors and underwent a clinical exam that comprised a large array of clinical biomarkers, DNA for epigenetic analysis, and an ultrasound scan of the carotid artery.

The postdoc will collaborate with physician-scientists in the Department of Molecular Biology, demographers at the Office of Population Research, and cardiologists and cardiac epidemiologists at Northwestern University. This appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal. Applicants should submit a CV, a cover letter describing research interests, and contact information for three references. This position is subject to the University's background check policy and is Federally-funded. Learn more and apply here.
