This position is part of a cluster hire in Data Science and is one of twelve positions allocated to the cluster around three areas of focus: Data Core, Health Analytics, and Technology and Education. The multi-faculty hire represents an ambitious program to develop large-scale collaborative research projects responding to some of humankind’s most daunting challenges. This position in Applied Physiology and Sport Management is closely associated with the Health Analytics group that, in addition, includes positions in Biology, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Psychology. The candidate is expected to collaborate with other faculty in the Technology and Education and Data Core groups with the goal to acquire, manage, analyze, interpret, and transform data into accurate, consistent and timely information that can help us further identify, understand, and control the burden of health-related challenges. The Department of Applied Physiology and Sport Management is seeking candidates with a program of research in a substantive area of health or sports health science that also contributes to the Health Analytics area of the Data Science cluster. Substantive research areas of interest include but are not limited to: 1) etiology, measurement, and/or treatment of disease or injury (broadly defined but including sports-related injury); 2) physiological mechanisms of health and disease; 3) accelerating therapeutic discovery with clinical trials data; 4) impact of problems (e.g., obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, decreased physical activity) on physical health and disease prevention; and 5) allocation of health care resources in the treatment of disease or injury (broadly defined but including sports-related injury). Examples of methodologies and data analytic approaches with significant potential to enhance SMU’s capacity in Data Science include but are not limited to: 1) computational modeling and machine learning applications; 2) high-speed computing for analysis of large datasets (e.g., neuroimaging, diagnostic data, health care disparities); 3) intensive mobile data collection and data sensing (e.g., geolocation, smartphone usage); and 4) use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology for assessment, intervention or treatment. The Department Chair is a halftime administrative position that will allow for participation in research related to the Health Analytics cluster. The Department Chair will oversee an interdisciplinary department of clinical and tenure-line faculty with undergraduate concentrations in Applied Physiology and Health Management, Sport Management, and Sport Performance Leadership as well as graduate programs in Health Management and Sport Management. Successful candidates must also be able to contribute meaningfully to the doctoral program in the Simmons School of Education and Human Development. The Department Chair will support ongoing efforts towards equity and inclusion, advance the quality and reputation of the programs within the department, and build on the collaborative and supportive culture for faculty, staff, and students. We welcome candidates from all backgrounds. For additional information about the faculty and the department, visit https://www.smu.edu/apsm. SMU has many strengths to support research in the Data Science Cluster. SMU is home to one of the fastest and most powerful academic supercomputers in the nation (ManeFrame II), which can handle large volumes of sensing data as well as the ability to implement advanced algorithms for time-series analysis, data mining, and machine learning.

Principal Research Fellow of Qualitative / Mixed Methods Research in Clinical Trials

THE UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND (UQ), BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

  • UQ’s Health Research Accelerator (HERA) Program
  • Academic level D
  • Applications close 1 December 2022 at 11.00pm AEST (R-17123)

UQ's HEALTH RESEARCH ACCELERATOR INITIATIVE

Addressing the world’s most pressing health and medical research challenges requires a transformative approach that nurtures different perspectives, expertise and embraces diversity to achieve more than what can be accomplished in a traditional research model. That is what UQ’s Health Research Accelerator, or HERA, will achieve.

Through HERA, we will bring together researchers, partners and end-users who share a common goal, ethos and passion to create novel solutions by leveraging combined capabilities, backgrounds and perspectives.

UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND CLINICAL TRIALS CAPABILITY (ULTRA) PROGRAM

Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) are an important component of the Australian healthcare system as they provide the gold standard, most robust evidence about the comparative effectiveness and cost effectiveness of interventions. Evidence from RCTs transforms healthcare, shapes decisions about healthcare expenditure, and most importantly, when translated, improves the health of the population.

The ULTRA Program aims to create Australia’s most successful interdisciplinary team in innovative RCT design, conduct and analyses to attract RCT funding, collaborate to deliver RCTs rapidly and ensure results can be translated for patient benefit.

ABOUT THIS OPPORTUNITY

We are seeking to appoint a Principal Research Fellow of Qualitative/Mixed Methods Research in Clinical Trials to provide methodological leadership to the new University of Queensland cLinical TRials cApability (ULTRA) Program. This new role would ideally suit a dynamic leader in the field of social science related to medicine/health sciences, and qualitative health research, with experience in embedding these methodologies in RCTs. RCTs are the most effective and efficient study design for evaluating effects of healthcare treatments and services but come with challenges of feasibility, equipoise, informed participation, recruitment and retention of participants, as well as understanding context to inform generalisability and support translation. Integrating qualitative research before, during and after RCTs helps address these challenges.
