All applicants should have experience in research that focuses on public

well as the responses from the public and policy makers.  We are especially
interested in community and structural interventions and determinants of
health; health communication and health education (in clinical, community
and societal settings); and behavioral aspects of genetic testing and
genetically-influenced conditions. We study behavioral and social aspects of
chronic diseases; extant and emerging infections; as well as injury,
violence, and disability. We utilize a wide array of social and behavioral
science methods, including community-based participatory research, in our
work, be it conducted in Baltimore or around the globe.
