The successful candidate will develop and extend skills in implementation science in Maternal and Child Health, including mixed-methods and interdisciplinary community-based participatory research. S/he will work directly mentorship of the PI to conduct research activities that may include developing analytical frameworks, developing protocols, conducting mix-methods data collection, monitoring data quality, and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data.
