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 eight 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 the postdoc 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.
