The Center for Demography of Health and Aging (CDHA) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison invites applications for a postdoctoral traineeship beginning January 1, 2022. The CDHA program is funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and intended to support and develop the research and professional skills of recent PhDs in public health and/or the social sciences (including demography, sociology, economics, and related disciplines).
Research at CDHA focuses on theoretical, methodological, and policy issues related to population aging and health. The program has a growing research portfolio examining the interplay between social, economic, geographic, and biological determinants of health and longevity. There is an emphasis on the study of genetic and epigenetic biomarkers and recent initiatives to expand research on cognitive health and disparities.
