The postdoctoral scholar will also have opportunities to participate in longitudinal data collection, use NACA data in their own publications, and develop an independent research project under mentored supervision. Finally, the postdoctoral scholar will also help organize speaking events with scholars around the country who work in this area.

Specific duties include:
