Nature of the work:

The Department of Emergency Medicine is excited to recruit a doctoral-level clinical or outcomes researcher with interest and experience in patient-oriented human subjects research or health care systems research. This person will serve as a key part of the research team in a School of Medicine clinical and translational research program.  The researcher in this position will be appointed to, and build a career at, the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado. Academic rank will be determined by education, experience, and accomplishments, with opportunities for growth and development. This Department has won national awards for supporting the advancement women in professor ranks and to leadership positions. The Department has structured processes to develop academic professionals from all backgrounds and all areas of focus and expertise.

The University of Colorado has a mentoring culture and an extensive infrastructure for education, training, and career development. The successful candidate will have access to multiple learning opportunities and ways to build their research career over time, and to increase the impact of their work. A candidate may want to work predominantly in research on a team or build a track record towards more of an independent research career as a team scientist or as a principal investigator or continue to advance their own independent research agenda. In all cases, in addition to the planned work, the candidate will co-develop a career development plan for their own professional growth. All of these careers can be facilitated in our supportive, collaborative, and fast-growing academic department.

This position will combine a focus on the Department research team’s existing funded work, and also allow opportunities for the candidate to pursue and lead specific new analyses or projects. More senior candidates would be expected to lead more of their research efforts; all candidates will be expected to be collaborative team members.

We seek candidates with excellent training and experience with research using quantitative or qualitative data and appropriate methods. We would be especially enthusiastic about candidates with some exposure to clinical data; injury/mortality/morbidity data; administrative claims; community epidemiologic data; multivariable models; repeated measures, and longitudinal data.  Current project areas include epidemiologic studies of clinical interventions and modifiable factors that lead to poor outcomes amongst injured populations; prevention and treatment of acute illness; clinical and educational interventions that may improve patient outcomes; dissemination and implementation science; and improving methods to diagnose and treat patients with a variety of injuries and predict specific health outcomes. This list is not at all exhaustive; there is a wide range of clinical and translational research, as well as interest in applied studies of health care and education activities.

Ideal candidates will have some interest or experience in educating and mentoring; obtaining external research funding from federal and philanthropic sources; creating and disseminating products of scholarship including peer-reviewed publications and non-traditional scholarship.

We particularly encourage candidates whose research interests and methodological skills complement or extend the Department’s existing research strengths. Ideal candidates have experience working collaboratively and effectively in multi-disciplinary inclusive teams and value diversity of ideas and backgrounds. The successful senior candidate would be expected to lead a vigorous, externally funded research program as an independent investigator and to participate in the educational mission which includes teaching and mentoring.  The successful junior researcher will be interested in developing a mentoring and career plan that supports a career trajectory with ongoing growth in their areas of expertise and scholarly contributions.

Candidates with methodological skills and analytic experience are welcome from all different methodological backgrounds, such as those with doctoral degrees in health services and systems related fields (e.g., health services research, behavioral or social sciences, epidemiology, sociology, demography, economics, community psychology, public health) are strongly encouraged to apply. Prior research experience in emergency medicine is desirable but not required; this team will be excited to engage you in this important work and teach this new team member about our areas of research. Prior completion of a post-doctoral fellowship program is also desirable but not required, for this position.
