position of Center Fellow for a new initiative funded by the American Heart Association (AHA)
to promote cardiovascular health among high-risk New York City children, and their caregivers,
living in Harlem and the Bronx. This program is part of the American Heart Association’s Strategically Focused Prevention Research Network. The research team’s mission is to reduce future risk of obesity, heart attack, stroke and Type 2 diabetes, for both the children and their caregivers. The Center fellow will be responsible for interacting with the three main projects at Mount Sinai which will measure the impact of an integrated approach to cardiovascular health promotion among preschool-aged children and their caregivers.
The AHA Strategically Focused Prevention Research Centers’ Fellowship Training Programs are intensive experiences that will prepare scholars for careers in prevention research. The training programs include substantial protected time for research and formal mentorship from experienced faculty. The training program also includes opportunities for didactic training, as well as cross-center training through a collaborative network that the four centers have established for research training.
Candidates must have at least completed an ACGME accredited internal medicine, family medicine, primary care, preventive medicine or pediatrics residency, or hold a PhD, with interest and experience in health promotion, preventive medicine, or epidemiology. Applicants should be highly motivated and seek advanced research training and experience to become leaders in cardiovascular disease or prevention research.
The fellowship requires full-time commitment.
