The METRANS Transportation Center and the Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics is seeking candidates for a one year, renewable for a second year, full-time Postdoctoral Research position. METRANS and Schaeffer have joined together to support research at the intersection of transportation and health. We are particularly interested in questions of accessibility to health services and health outcomes. For example, do restrictions imposed by various types of insurance plans result in traveling longer distances to obtain medical care? Do some communities have more access to health care services than others? If so, do these differences affect consumption of health care services, all else equal?
The position is 12 month, fixed term, with the possibility of a second year conditional upon performance and funding availability.
The ideal candidate will have experience in multidisciplinary research and working knowledge of travel behavior. The candidate should have the following qualifications: 1) PhD in transportation planning, public policy, or a closely related field completed within the past two years; 2) experience in constructing, processing, cleaning, and analyzing large datasets; 3) experience with database management software; 4) expertise in ArcGIS, including mapping as well as geostatistical and network analysis; 5) expertise in statistical analysis, econometrics and spatial econometrics using standard software such as Stata, R or SAS. Familiarity with multiple computer programming languages is a plus. The preferred candidates would also be willing to write new grant proposals.
In order for your application to be considered, you must attach a cover letter and CV.
