Work With Us

IBHRI follows a team science model in its scientific collaborations.

What is Team Science?

Research is increasingly accessing expertise of multidisciplinary collaborative groups. Team science is the collaborative effort to address a scientific challenge that leverages the strengths and expertise of professionals trained in different fields. Traditional single-investigator driven approaches used to be the primary approach - and may still be appropriate for many scientific endeavors. However, interdisciplinary teams of investigators are essential for addressing multi-factorial problems. These include complex health, behavioral health, and social problems with multiple causes.

How to Get Involved

IBHRI is excited to partner with professionals who have a strong commitment to reducing health disparities and share our mission, vision, and values! Do you have a project or an idea that fits our mission? Are you interested in adding a non-profit partner to your grant application? There are two ways you can get involved.

Become an Affiliate Collaborator

Grant writers, practitioners, and clinicians can join IBHRI as Affiliate Collaborators. IBHRI is a non-profit research organization with IRS 501(c)(3) status, which qualifies the organization for federal, state, and government grants. **Affiliate collaborators are not employees.

Become an Affiliated Research Scientist

Researchers, scholars, program evaluators, and part-time or adjunct faculty are welcome to join us as IBHRI Research Scientist Affiliate members. To show our appreciation for our members, we provide collaboration opportunities and access to our Google Suite of resources and research-related tools. **Affiliated Research Scientists are not employees.


Follow these steps to be a volunteer IBHRI Affiliate Collaborator or Research Scientist Affiliate.

  • Step One: Review our mission, vision, and values.

  • Step Two: Look over our research activities.

  • Step Three: Submit your CV or resume via email to and include in the subject line the affiliate type you are interested in.

  • Step Four: IBHRI will contact you and together, we will discuss the potential for collaboration and identify steps to begin. If it's not a fit, we're happy to offer alternatives or referrals. Please note: These are not paid employment positions. Affiliate research scientists oversee their own work and resources and collaborate with other IBHRI scientists and external partners on funded research projects.
