The Center for Populations Health Research (CPHR) in the Department of Quantitative Health Sciences at Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio is searching for a doctoral level Research Associate/Project Staff to collaborate with a multidisciplinary group of investigators, led by Jarrod E. Dalton, PhD in the Lerner Research Institute (LRI) at Cleveland Clinic. The position may include a non-tenured faculty appointment to the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University at rank commensurate with experience. T he ideal candidate will have a PhD degree in a relevant field including but not limited to health services research, mathematical modeling and simulation spatial and spatiotemporal epidemiology; health economics, health policy and management and demonstrated capabilities in conducting successful peer-reviewed research. The candidate is expected to participate in writing collaborative research proposals, grant applications, and manuscripts. Demonstrated experience with methodological research in a related area is desirable. Candidates must have at least 3 years of experience beyond the doctoral degree and a record of publication. This is a full-time, 100% funded position with support for both CPHR collaborative translational population health research projects and primary, investigator-initiated (mentored) research. Candidates should enjoy collaborating on and bringing creative analytic approaches to complex problems in health care, a strong desire to conduct and publish peer-reviewed research, a willingness to work on projects in diverse clinical areas with interdisciplinary teams, and a commitment to professional growth and career development. Interested candidates should e-mail their curriculum vitae, the names of at least three references and a letter summarizing their experience and research interests to firstname.lastname@example.org
