Postdoctoral research scientist positions are available as part of a HRSA-funded National Research Service Award (NRSA) at GW for individuals with career interest in primary care research (T32).   The position is a temporary research training position, to last for a minimum of 2 years, in which the incumbent plays  a substantive role in planning and conducting research by designing and conducting experiments in an area relevant  to primary care. In collaboration with faculty mentors, this role will participate in the planning of independent  research, will analyze and interpret data, will disseminate results, will represent the university at conferences and  scientific meetings, and may develop new theories and methodologies. This position may also assist faculty mentors  in the conduct of established research and/or direct research staff. This role performs work under the supervision of  experienced researchers. Trainees may be assigned and receive financial assistance for research-related coursework,  and additional support is available for trainee-related expenses (e.g., conference travel).   The overall goal of the George Washington University (GW) Primary Care Research Training Program (P-CART) is to  develop researchers who are prepared to generate, test, and disseminate primary care-oriented interventions that aim to improve health and health equity. It is essential to equip the next generation of primary care researchers with the knowledge, competencies, experience, and leadership to uncover new knowledge and drive effective translation  of best evidence into practice across health promotion, disease and injury prevention, workforce innovation, health care transformation, and population health. P-CART addresses the US Department of Health and Human Services clinical priority of “transforming the workforce – targeting the need” with a curriculum and research career development activities designed to prepare a professional cadre of trainees with the capabilities to address  significant issues in primary care. Primary care research is research that informs a wide range of issues related to  primary care practice and policy, including the quality, costs, and outcomes of primary care; patient-provider  communication; generalist-specialist issues; workforce issues; and access to care, including disparities in care. P-CART will also consider candidates pursuing biomedical or behavioral research that is relevant to primary care. The funding  agency will review and must approve all research topics/projects. Trainees must attend a national HRSA meeting.
Assumes primary responsibility for the development of his/her research and career growth through active participation in mentoring, informal and formal training, career development  activities, appraisals of competency, self-directed learning, and reflection.
 Designs and performs research relevant to primary care in accordance with high standards for quality, rigor, and ethical conduct of research as well as ensures compliance with institutional and federal regulations.
Collaborates with mentors/supervisors, research staff, peers, study participants, and other stakeholders, maintaining a climate of mutual respect and teamwork.
Conducts literature reviews, processes for regulatory approval, data collection and analysis, and dissemination of results to advance primary care research.
Participates in annual evaluations, networking events, meetings and conferences designed to support personal and professional growth as well as success in establishing a primary care  research career.
Performs other work related duties as assigned. The omission of specific duties does not preclude the supervisor from assigning duties that are logically related to the position.
Funding for this project is made by the US Health Resources & Services Administration with award number 1 T32HP42014‐01‐00.   Minimum Qualifications: Qualified candidates will hold a Doctoral degree in a related discipline. Degree must be conferred by the start date of the position.
