Describe:  One fully funded PhD opening in Health Promotion Sciences starting Fall 2023. The PhD program in Health Promotion Sciences at the Department of Allied Health Sciences, University of Connecticut is an innovative and interdisciplinary program that train students to conduct research on a wide range of areas of health promotion and disease prevention in both academic and applied settings, including industry, public health, healthcare, and non-profit organizations. For this position students should have strong quantitative skills (e.g., with training in statistics/biostatistics, spatial modeling, data science or other related fields) and are interested in problems in public health and disease prevention. Students will have opportunities to learn about data science and systems science approaches, and apply them to study empirical problems across various health domains, such as utilizing the state-of-the-art technology (e.g., food image recognition, human mobility tracking) to study the community food environment, applying social network analysis to understand and facilitate the design of online health interventions, modeling human behaviors during epidemics, and evaluating the impacts of various food-related policies and community interventions on public health.
