Job announcement and description from Dr. Corey L. Moore, Principal Investigator and Research Director:
Dear Colleagues and Stakeholders,
We are pleased to announce that Langston University (LU), a historically Black college/university (HBCU), has been awarded a $750,000 grant by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) to offer a Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (LU-ARRT) Program (two-year post-doctoral fellowship) in Solutions-Focused Translational Scholarship to Improve the Employment Outcomes for Persons with Disabilities from Traditionally Underserved Racial and Ethnic Populations. The LU-ARRT represents a collaborative effort between Langston University, the Institute for Community Inclusion at the University of Massachusetts Boston ([ICI] Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-serving institution), North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University ([NCA&T] HBCU), South Carolina State University ([SCSU] HBCU), and Jackson State University ([JSU] HBCU). The LU-ARRT Program is housed within the Langston University Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (LU-RRTC) on Research and Capacity Building for Minority Entities, and draws upon the Center's extensive research capacity building expertise, collaborative networks, and resource.
We invite individuals who have earned a doctorate from a minority-serving institution (i.e., HBCU, Hispanic serving institution, or American Indian tribal college) or traditionally White institution (TWI) and current doctoral candidates (must graduate before beginning fellowship) at minority-serving institutions or TWIs interested in employment research to apply to participate in the post-doctoral fellowship. Minority-serving institution-based faculty members who have earned doctorates are also eligible to apply (i.e., 80% research supplements through subcontract for such faculty in residence at their employing minority-serving institution are optional). We strongly encourage individuals with disabilities to apply. We are particularly interested in recruiting candidates who have a strong desire to obtain an academic faculty position or research position at a minority-serving institution upon completion of the fellowship program.
Please disseminate the enclosed recruitment material widely to colleagues, students, and others who may be eligible for participation or who may know eligible individuals.
