This post-doctoral researcher will work on projects under the direction of Leslie B Hammer, PhD. Dr. Hammer\u2019s research group is focused on improving the physical and mental well-being of workers through interventions designed to increase employee-supportive behaviors at all leadership levels. This research focuses on ways in which organizations can help reduce work and family stress and facilitate workplace supports such as Family Supportive Supervisor Behavior training. The group has studied workplace interventions with employee populations such as the grocery and service industry, health care, construction, information technology, and government, including military populations.
This post-doctoral researcher will work on a 4-year Randomized Controlled Trial (now in its 3r d year), funded by the Department of Defense, involving a workplace intervention in the Oregon National Guard. Duties will primarily involve data management and analysis, particularly with multi-level and nested data, as well as work with actigraphy data (i.e., sleep tracking). Other duties,under the guidance of Dr. Hammer, will include: drafting research publications, making conference presentations, assisting with report generation to the Department of Defense, overseeing Human Subjects compliance, and other research activities as needed, including recruitment and intervention delivery, though this will be less frequent. This is an excellent opportunity to gain research experience and build a CV for a competitive academic position. PI will provide mentorship in development of independent grant submissions.
