GRA – Correctional Healthcare EPI, RSPH

***This position is available for non-REAL students***



Dr. Spaulding is actively looking for a Graduate Research Assistant to join our team at the Center for the Health of Incarcerated Persons. The Emory University Center for the Health of Incarcerated Persons (CHIP) exists to improve the health of those passing through correctional facilities internationally ( e.g., Haiti/Caribbean), Georgia, and elsewhere in the U.S. (e.g., Washington D.C. ). It encourages the conduct of ethically responsible and scientifically rigorous health research in prisons, jails and post-incarceration settings. CHIP also promotes collaboration among researchers with an interest in correctional health. Persons in correctional systems are some of the most vulnerable members of society, who are often beyond the reach of the jurisdiction’s existing medical system. The Center is an interactive community that enhances collaboration between academic investigators, students, correctional institutions, community based organizations, healthcare professionals, previously or currently incarcerated persons, and others with an interest in correctional health care to address the public health needs of this vulnerable group. The work mainly focuses on HIV and Hepatitis C. The Center is directed by Anne C. Spaulding, MD, MPH.


Skills and Experience

Candidate must be a self-starter, work well in team settings, and have the ability to work independently. The following skills may be employed: survey administration, analysis, literature searches, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. Strong interpersonal and writing skills are required. Prefer entering graduate students in public health or rising second year graduate students in public health, with good quantitative skills, an ability to write and knowledge of data management.
