  • MATADOHR Project Assistant Opportunity

    Posted: June 21, 2022

    (View as individual posting)

    Project Title: Massachusetts Tackling Addiction Determinants of Health through Research (MATADOHR) Project Lead: Amanda Latimore, Adjunct Professor, Department of Epidemiology, JHSPH

    The Massachusetts Tackling Addiction Determinants of Health through Research (MATADOHR) at the American Institutes for Research, in coordination with JHSPH, is seeking a project assistant (unpaid) to help with tasks related to a landscape assessment. Please see full description below:

    The US experienced a record-breaking 107,000 overdose deaths in 2021. The overdose epidemic has been characterized by the media as a problem for white communities, yet people of color have experienced disproportionate increases in overdose deaths. In Massachusetts, for example, overdose deaths increased by only 5% across the state between 2019 and 2020 but increased by 69% among Black non-Hispanic males during the same time. Structural factors may contribute to the inequities in overdose death.   The aims of MATADOHR are to assess the race/ethnicity-specific association of overdose death with individual- and community-level social determinants of health. The project also explores how residential segregation may condition the impact of social determinants on overdose death. The MATADOHR team engages in participatory research alongside Massachusetts community-members and program administrators to integrate local knowledge with quantitative findings and develop theories of change that identify key policy and program barriers and facilitators to health in Massachusetts.   As part of this project, the MATADOHR team will conduct a landscape assessment of residential segregation research to explore how the impact of residential segregation on drug-related outcomes is measured, analyzed, and interpreted. The findings of the landscape assessment will inform the MATADOHR analyses and a residential segregation research toolkit that is in development with the support of a panel of national experts.   Approximately 100 hours are available to support the residential segregation landscape assessment.

    Activities include:  Read research papers and gray literature; Catalogue relevant resources with input from the team; Summarize each paper using a rubric provided by the research team. Optional: contribute to writing during toolkit development  

    Interested students should contact Amanda Latimore (alatimore@air.org).
