Haven’t been to Anchorage before?  Anchorage combines the conveniences of a surprisingly modern city – great restaurants, shopping, a large and diverse grade school system with two universities, as well as arts and cultural institutions, with the freedom and adventure of unspoiled wilderness, parklands, and glaciers, hiking, and fishing, within an hour or two from the city.  The Anchorage public health community offers career and professional growth unlike many places in the Lower 48 states.  It may be cold, but Anchorage, Alaska was ranked No. 10 “happiest city” out of 190 cities across the United States by National Geographic in 2017!  Posted 05/24/2018)

Position Summary:  This is one of six multicultural postdoctoral fellowships being provided at UAA starting in August 2018.
