The Kratz Lab within the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Michigan is seeking a full-time research track faculty member with expertise in collecting and statistically analyzing ambulatory assessment data (actigraphy, ecological momentary assessment, ambulatory cognitive testing), conducting qualitative research, and developing and testing behavioral eHealth interventions.
