Our Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Social Determinants of Dementia and Brain Health will apply innovative epidemiological methods to support ongoing research studies on the social determinants of dementia and brain health. The candidate will have the opportunity to collaborate with CPBH investigators and participate in didactic sessions. Under the mentorship of Dr. Kristine Yaffe, the scholar will be responsible for driving original research projects while receiving epidemiological research training to become an independent investigator. Potential analytic projects will be focused on social determinants of cognitive aging and dementia including socioeconomic status, social support and social network, discrimination, and neighborhood deprivation. Ideal applicants would have particular interest in expanding expertise in social epidemiology, longitudinal data analysis, and life course models with the opportunity to explore additional data science and machine learning approaches.

Our 2-year Research Fellowship in Traumatic Brain Injury and Aging trains outstanding scientists to lead clinical research on TBI and aging either within the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center or across the nation and world. The fellow will design and lead epidemiological analyses of existing TBI data, present findings at local and national research meetings, first-author original scientific articles, and write grants under the primary mentorship of Dr. Raquel Gardner with co-mentorship from Dr. Kristine Yaffe. The fellow will be expected to begin preparation of a career development award grant by the start of year 2 of the fellowship to propel them towards an independent research career.
