Postdoctoral Researcher @ Ohio State in Systems Modeling, Reproductive Health and Birth Outcomes

We seek an exceptional scholar with a strong background and interest in reproductive health research, including infant and maternal mortality, policy, contraception, and abortion. This position will provide post-doctoral research training and support (per NIH postdoctoral fellow salary rates) for one year, renewable for a second year upon satisfactory performance. The position also includes funds for travel to conferences for research dissemination and professional development. Specifically, the OPEN post-doctoral researcher will work under the mentorship of two OPEN investigators and will make contributions to the OPEN research program, collecting and managing data, conducting analyses and collaborating on writing manuscripts. In addition, the post-doctoral researcher will be engaged with OPEN’s activities in research dissemination and policy engagement, training, and building and expanding a network of scholars in Ohio and surrounding states.

The OPEN post-doctoral researcher will be based at Ohio State’s main Columbus campus, and will divide their effort between two related projects within OPEN. The distribution of abortion in Ohio (led by Dr. Alison Norris) will examine past and present population-level shifts in abortion provision, with special attention to change over time, geographic variation, and groups of women who may be underserved using state-collected data as well as medical chart review. Systems dynamic modeling of infant and maternal mortality (led by Dr. Ayaz Hyder) will utilize a systems modeling approach to understand the impacts of contraception and access to contraception and reproductive health services on birth outcomes and infant and maternal mortality in Ohio.
