Postdoctoral/research/senior Fellow at Australian National University

Australian National University is offering postdoctoral researcher position in medical sciences. This position is closed on March 17, 2019.

This is a rare opportunity to be involved in cutting-edge methodological research, including the development and evaluation of statistical methods for Multiple Causes of Death. This project has an international reach and has the potential to influence the way that Australia and other countries record causes of death in their health and administrative systems.

ANU has an international reputation for research and education relevant to the health and well-being of the population of Australia, as well as that of the developing world. This is achieved through discovery research, applied research in health service settings, research-led teaching in health and medical sciences, and the translation of research findings into practice and policy. The ANU College of Health and Medicine comprises the Research School of Psychology, the ANU Medical School, the John Curtin School of Medical Research and the Research School of Population Health. These schools work together to deliver world-class research and education across the spectrum of medicine and health-related fields, working in partnership with the health sector at local, national and international levels.

This position is funded by a new NHMRC grant for a program of methodological research relating to the analysis and reporting of multiple causes of death (MCoD). The appointee will contribute to the project aims which are to: develop and test statistical methods for MCoD quantification to fill the most important methodological gaps; quantify the impact of using MCoD versus conventional methods; and develop an MCoD framework and toolkit for implementation in practice, using the National Cause of Death collection and a large-scale cohort study with linked administrative health data.
