Candidates will join a growing transdisciplinary team at Ohio State University (OSU) focused on studying patient preferences as well as advancing and applying methods for promoting patient engagement in science, health equities and evidence synthesis and generation. Our postdocs can work on a variety of research projects and generate their own research proposals and studies in a collaborative team science environment. Our group has broad interests and applies methods to a wide array of clinical, population medicine and public health topics. Our current projects include cancer control, regulatory science, rare diseases, genomics, and real-world data. We also have a wide range of collaborators at OSU and several other universities.
Specifically, the fellow will plan, design and execute experiments of considerable scope and complexity in the assigned research lab; collect and analyze data for research sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and other Institutions; identify and select problems to be studied; develop and troubleshoot new experimental techniques and protocols; attend research seminars; lead manuscript preparation and support technical writing; participate in preparation of grant applications for extramural funding and perform additional duties as assigned.
Postdoctoral scholars in this group are given independence and the option to carve out their own research agenda. Support for applying to independent fellowships or transition to independence awards are available in the lab and at the college and university levels. At Ohio State the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) and the Postdoctoral Association offer support and community to all postdocs at the university. The OPA strives to be a national leader in diversity, equity, and inclusion. To that end, the office engages in and leads significant efforts to increase diversity among future leaders through the Professoriate Advancement Initiative, and the Researcher, Mentor, Teacher Program (RMT). The latter recruits transfer students -- including underrepresented minoritized students -- to do research under the mentorship of an RMT postdoc who will also have the opportunity to teach at Columbus State Community College. All postdoctoral scholars are encouraged to participate in these efforts, thus contributing to an inclusive climate as well as developing their own leadership and mentoring philosophy.
