Fellows

Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Women's Health

We are seeking promising and highly motivated individuals for a postdoctoral research fellowship in the Division of Chronic Disease Research Across the Lifecourse (CoRAL) in the Department of Population Medicine (DPM) at Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate.  The research will focus on associations of fertility with women’s health in midlife. 

The overall goal of our NIH-funded project is to test our hypothesis that women with evidence of impaired fertility will have more adverse body composition, bone health, and cardiometabolic outcomes in perimenopause. The research leverages data from Project Viva, a highly engaged existing cohort of over 1000 socio-demographically diverse women from whom we have already collected detailed information on weight, diet, and other health behaviors beginning at enrollment in 1999-2002, and updated continually since. Fellows will work directly with study Principal Investigators Dr. Emily Oken and Dr. Jorge Chavarro.

The position will begin on or after May 1, 2022. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, but those submitted by March 1, 2022 will receive earliest consideration.


Postdoctoral Research Fellowship: Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD) and Adolescent Research

We are seeking promising and highly motivated individuals for a postdoctoral research fellowship in the Division of Chronic Disease Research Across the Lifecourse (CoRAL) in the Department of Population Medicine (DPM) at Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate.  The research will focus on prenatal and early life environmental determinants of obesity and cardiometabolic risk in mid/late adolescence.  The research will leverage data from Project Viva, a highly engaged existing cohort of over 1000 socio-demographically diverse adolescents enrolled prenatally 1999-2002, with ongoing follow-up since.  The latest round of data collection at ages 17-18 years included robust assessment of body composition and cardiometabolic health.  A wealth of early life environmental exposures have been assessed including nutrition, chemicals, and social experiences. The fellow will work directly with Principal Investigators Dr. Emily Oken and Dr. Marie-France Hivert, and other members of the Project Viva team.

The position will begin on or after May 1, 2022. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, but those submitted by March 1, 2022 will receive earliest consideration.
