Principal Investigator of the Oncinfo Lab


The George Washington University (Washington DC)

Postdoc with a quantitative background sought for an interdisciplinary research project designed to address the disconnect between observational studies and RCTs in dementia prevention.

This work will include (a) analyses on risk factors for dementia in data from up to 8 observational datasets, (b) analyses implementing causal inference methods, and (c) writing/presenting papers on this work.

The postdoc also comes with protected time to develop a unique K, F, or R grant.

The position is at GWU, but you will work alongside a distinguished team from GWU, UCSF, Harvard, UC Davis, and UCLA, including Melinda Power (GWU), Maria Glymour (UCSF), Jaime Robins (Harvard), and others.

Preference will be given to candidates who can start in the winter/spring, but candidates with later potential start dates will also be considered.

For further information, please contact:
