Post-doc Fellowship: LINK Research Lab of University of Texas at Arlington - Arlington, TX 

Location: Arlington, TX
Posted: February 23, 2015
Deadline: March 16, 2015
Compensation: Full-time
Click here to apply online 

Description: The relationship between work and formal education is changing. A traditional view holds that formal education prepares individuals for a lifetime of employment. Education in this view is event based. Essentially, once the degree has been completed, the individual moves into the workforce. However, as a result of the complexities and challenges associated with the modern economy, this model is no longer the norm. The traditional full time student is now a minority in the USA, as part time learners and mid-career masters students and alternative programs (such as competency based and online learning) increase in numbers. The nature of work and employment is also changing, as routine labor is increasingly automated. Bill Gates recently stated that within a decade, 50% of today’s jobs will be automated. The repercussions that this has for the economy and the quality of life for people are significant. The impact on the future of universities and colleges, specifically in relation to how higher education prepares individuals for employment, is an important area of research. The skills/employment gap refers to the relationship between what learners know and can do when they graduate and what employers expect. A second gap, that of developing the whole person (such as in a liberal arts education) versus developing an individual for primary employment, also exists as work moves to a creative economy. The balance between formal education, learning, work, creativity, and knowledge advancement will be the primary focus of this post doc position.

Qualifications: Applicants will have a completed, or soon to be completed, PhD in areas related to this position with research experience using job and labor statistics, a strong background in digital learning pedagogies in higher education.

Research Faculty Associate Position in Health Promotion: The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Public Health - El Paso , TX

Location: El Paso, TX
Posted: January 19, 2015
Deadline: Until filled
Compensation: Full-time
Click here to view full job posting 

Description: We are seeking a doctoral researcher to collaborate with on health promotion research, including evaluations of community health partnerships, community health worker interventions, and self-help support groups. Health outcomes addressed include substance use, physical activity, mental health, and cancer, with an emphasis on the prevention of health problems. Interventions take place in both the United States and Mexico, although travel to Mexico is not expected. The Faculty Associate position will involve project management tasks such as coordination with community partners, survey development, data management, analysis, and manuscript preparation. The individual will also be supported in pursuing funding as principal investigator.

The El Paso Regional Campus is one of six campuses in the School of Public Health. Our doctoral program in health promotion is ranked #1 in the country. The school is part of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, which has over $250,000,000 in research expenditures per year.

El Paso is a city of about 700,000 people with a low cost of living. The city is unique in that a mountain, which is a state park, cuts through the middle of it. The sun shines like in Phoenix but it is not as hot because of the elevation (~4,000ft). El Paso is also ranked as the safest city in the U.S. despite high rates of poverty. The culture is substantially different than other parts of the U.S. and it’s an excellent place to study contextual influences, the need for adaptation, and generalizability. Juárez, Mexico (population 1.3 million) is part of the same metropolitan area, and provides unique opportunities for cross-cultural comparisons.

Qualifications: The successful candidate will have outstanding oral and written communication skills, along with quantitative research skills. Qualitative research experience and Spanish language skills are also valued. A doctoral degree in public health, psychology, sociology, anthropology, social work, or another relevant discipline is required.

How to Apply: Applicants must apply here. Only applications received through the online system will be considered. Questions about the position should be directed to Louis Brown, louis.d.brown@uth.tmc.edu or 915-747-8506.
