Preferred qualifications for both positions include strong methodological skills, publications in high-impact journals, evidence of excellence in research productivity and potential for external funding (e.g., NIH, NSF, DoD), experience with interdisciplinary collaborations, and experience with military health research. We are particularly interested in applicants with research interests that have applications in military health who can collaborate with ongoing projects at local institutions, including the San Antonio Military Health System, UT Health San Antonio, the Warrior Resiliency Program, the STRONG STAR Consortium, and/or the Veterans Administration.
