Transcendent Endeavors, a company that develops digital products to help people in the areas of healthcare, education, and communication, is recruiting a full-time postdoctoral scholar or investigator for a two-year position in New York, NY.

The position will be funded through a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to improve the diversity of the research workforce by recruiting and supporting postdoctorates and eligible investigators from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in health-related research.

Individuals from nationally underrepresented groups (as defined in the NIH Notice of Interest in Diversity, NOT-OD-18-129) and individuals meeting the Small Business Administration definition of socially and economically disadvantaged individuals ( are eligible to apply. The National Institute of Nursing Research also considers male nurses as underrepresented, regardless of racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic background.

The successful candidate will work closely with the principal investigators and other members of the research team on a project that seeks to increase representative enrollment in health studies and interventions through customized outreach analyses and informed tailoring of recruitment and engagement strategies.

The responsibilities of this position will include research implementation, dissemination, and grant writing.
