This post-doctoral fellow will play a major role in the NeuroTrauma Laboratory’s efforts to study risk, recovery, and outcomes from mTBI. The primary project will be a multi-site National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and Department of Defense (DoD) funded study of the acute, cumulative and persistent effects of sport concussion. The research in this area is inherently multidisciplinary and will involve assisting with management of the project in addition to analyzing data, writing manuscripts for peer review, working with research coordinators and research assistants, and assisting in management of ongoing studies. There will be opportunities to gain exposure to grant writing as appropriate to the fellow’s career goals. Some support will be available to learn new analytic approaches, but the ideal candidate will have achieved a great deal of independence in performing one or more relevant data analytic approaches being used by our team and be apt to learning new techniques as needed.
Interested individuals must have completed, or will have completed by the start date, a terminal degree (PhD, ScD, etc) in a relevant field and have statistical experience with linear and mixed model designs, coding knowledge of R and/or MatLab/SAS, and strong writing skills. Candidates should have the ability to work independently and as part of a team in a fast-paced work environment; excellent written and oral communication skills; and excellent interpersonal skills required.
Experience with concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), multi-site trials and survey design and implementation is helpful
