NEW! Research and policy training opportunity in machine learning

CP3 seeks a post-doctoral fellow to join the NIH-funded team using machine learning methods to predict opioid related adverse events. The fellow will assist with the planning and implementation of projects to develop risk prediction algorithms for overdose and substance use disorder. Specifically, the fellow will clean and link large administrative and health care data sets, perform descriptive analyses on the data, apply machine learning techniques on the data sets to develop and refine risk prediction algorithms, and create dynamic data visualizations and dashboards using platforms such as Tableau and R Shiny. The fellow will work with nationally recognized experts in machine learning from Pitt, CMU, and the University of Florida.

The fellow will meet regularly with Center leadership to discuss analyses and results, write manuscripts, present research findings at professional meetings, and develop their own research ideas and consider grant funding opportunities to accelerate their own careers. Prior post-doctoral fellows at CP3 have gone on to multiple academic positions around the country.

Applicants with PhD training in epidemiology, biostatistics, pharmacoepidemiology, or machine learning are preferred; data management and analysis skills are required.

To apply please submit a letter of interest and CV to Courtney Kuza at cp3@pitt.edu
