Position Summary
We are inviting applications for postdoctoral fellow positions to join our vibrant interdisciplinary team in the Department of Health & Wellness Design within the School of Public Health-Bloomington (SPH-B) at Indiana University. The Better Health by Design research program collectively pursues “better health, by design” through the development and testing of sociotechnical interventions in key areas of prevention and care. We are highly interdisciplinary, applying expertise from social and behavioral sciences, systems engineering, informatics, human-centered design, and the health professions. Topics include medication safety; mobile health, sensors, and other technologies; healthy aging and disease prevention; family caregiving; participatory design of interventions; clinical trials to test interventions; and social determinants of health and healthy equity.
The position is intended to provide mentored research training and experience for postdoctoral fellows whose interests are aligned with the Better Health by Design research program.
The postdoctoral fellow will work with Nicole Werner, Ph.D. and Rich Holden, Ph.D., with the opportunity to form a mentorship team based on their goals and interests. Dr. Werner is an Associate Professor and Dean’s Eminent Scholar in the Department of Health & Wellness Design. Dr. Holden is Professor and Chair of Health & Wellness Design at SPH-B. He is a Jack A.

The fellow will receive training in mixed methods approaches, human-centered design of digital health interventions, stakeholder-engaged research, clinical trials, grant writing and management, and other critical skills as identified in their individual development plan. The fellow will receive the mentoring and time needed to advance their program of research toward becoming an independent scholar. Essential duties include:
