We are searching for a postdoctoral fellow to serve as the project manager for the virtual RIAT Support Center. The RIAT Support Center aims to improve the integrity of the scientific literature by supporting teams wishing to restore invisible and abandoned trials.
We invite applications from individuals who are highly motivated, organized, determined, and passionate about accountability and integrity in scientific research, and have a record of scholarship in this area. As project manager, the fellow will be a central public presence for the RIAT Support Center. The position involves raising awareness about RIAT and practical support of researchers and clinicians across the world that express an interest. This support will consist of providing tailored guidance on and hands-on help with the steps involved in the RIAT process (e.g. choosing a project, verifying the need for RIATing, establishing the scope of data needs, developing and supporting freedom of information requests, organizing clinical trial data received, and working with journal editors to facilitate the publication process). The fellow will be expected to take a lead role in writing guidance documents for researchers, to actively participate in the design and conduct of RIAT Support Center research projects, help connect allied communities through publications and online/offline community building.
The fellowship is based in the Department of Pharmaceutical Health Services Research at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. Our department is situated in downtown Baltimore on a vibrant, multi-disciplinary medical research campus. The fellow will have opportunities for professional growth through optional coursework (e.g. in epidemiology, pharmacoepidemiology, pharmacoeconomics, and methods) and unique chances to explore the drug regulatory world by virtue of our proximity to US federal agencies.
Fellows receive a competitive salary and benefits.
Qualifications: PhD, ScD, or DrPH in epidemiology, health policy, social sciences, or health-services research is required. Clinical degree (PharmD, MD, DO, or DPN) with research training is considered. Excellent communication, organizational, inter-personal, and time-management skills are a must. Research experience is desired. Familiarity with regulatory data is highly desired and knowledge of SAS, Stata, R, SQL, or data visualization software are a plus.
How to Apply: Applicants should submit a letter of interest, CV, writing sample, and three letters of recommendation. Review of applications will start immediately. The University of Maryland is an equal opportunity employer/affirmative action employer. Minorities, women, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
