The Military Suicide Research Consortium (MSRC) is seeking two postdoctoral fellows to conduct research on the prediction, treatment, and prevention of suicidal behavior. The fellows will be physically located at Harvard University but will train and collaborate with a large, multi-site network of researchers leading the Army Study to Assess Risk and Resilience in Servicemembers (Army STARRS) and MSRC. Army STARRS is focused on identifying risk and protective factors for suicidal behavior and related conditions, and MSRC is focused on developing and testing effective treatments for suicidal behavior. The post-doctoral fellows will work at the interface of these two initiatives, conducting research aimed at evaluating the impact and cost-effectiveness of available intervention and prevention programs in epidemiologically targeted high-risk population segments.
