The institute seeks one or more innovative postdoctoral scientists to work on developing and improving prediction models for dementia/Alzheimer’s disease, and investigate in detail the effects of preventive strategies in clinical trials. There is currently great need for disease models that cover the entire course of Alzheimer’s, and for bridging the gap between prediction and prevention by testing such models in clinical trials. This postdoc position involves statistical design and data analysis, data management, preparation of manuscripts, grants, and ethical and other data-related permit applications.


The applicant must hold a doctor’s degree and have a background in biostatistics; have experience using statistical software independently; have previous experience with large datasets and/or clinical trial statistics; and have a high level of spoken and written English. A strong publication record is highly desirable. The successful candidate is self-motivated and has good communication skills and ability to interact effectively and work productively in a team.
