Job Openings with the Aging, Transitions, and Suicide Across the Lifespan (ATLAS) Project
I am looking for two full-time research staff/fellows to join my interdisciplinary team on the ATLAS Project.
- Research Fellow: We are seeking a postdoctoral research fellow with experience and passion for public mental health research to contribute to the research agenda, progress, and design. To view more detailed information and apply, please visit the job posting here.
- Senior Analyst: We are looking for an experienced analyst who has conducted prior work with large epidemiological studies and who is interested in contributing to innovative public mental health research. To view more detailed information and apply, please visit the job posting here.
ATLAS was launched in response to calls from the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention and others for intervention efforts to consider pathways and mechanisms that contribute to suicide risk from a Life Course Framework. This framework focuses on how contextual factors (e.g., age, gender, race/ethnicity, social and environmental characteristics) shape proximal and distal risk and protective factors for suicidal behavior. The ultimate goal is to move away from viewing suicide prevention as solely crisis intervention to a more upstream approach that emphasizes mental health promotion.
