College of Dentistry's Department of Epidemiology & Health Promotion invites applications for a post-doc position under the supervision of Dr. Ryan Richard Ruff, associate professor and director of the Biostatistics Core. The fellow will be primarily involved in research and analysis of the CariedAway study, a pragmatic, cluster-randomized, non-inferiority clinical trial that explored the feasibility and effectiveness of using silver diamine fluoride for the treatment and prevention of oral disease. Funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, the current study aims to optimize treatment protocols by conducting additional analysis of the CariedAway clinical data. The selected applicant will support the individual objectives of the project, including the analysis of incidence rates in the presence of interval censored data, calculation of transition probabilities, and the use of multivariate methods. The duties of the fellow will include statistical analysis and development, statistical programming, preparation of scientific abstracts and writing manuscripts (first authorship can be expected), and attending team meetings.
In compliance with NYC's Pay Transparency Act, the annual base salary range for this position is $65,000.00 -$75,000.00. New York University considers factors such as (but not limited to) the specific grand funding and the terms of the research grant when extending an offer.
About the department
Epidemiology & Health Promotion is a multidisciplinary department in the College of Dentistry with expertise across the public health sciences, including biostatistics, epidemiology, health economics, dissemination and implementation science, health services research, health behavior, and global health. Its mission is to improve the health of human populations and reduce disparities by: expanding knowledge of factors that affect oral health; preventing and treating oral diseases; advancing diverse research methods and supporting large-scale implementation of programs; providing technical assistance to organizations and governments on effective ways of improving oral health equity; and training the next generation of innovative dental public health scholars and professionals. Department faculty design and implement observational and experimental studies in both community and clinical settings, applying complex analytic methods to understand the determinants of health and disease, the efficacy and efficiency of interventions, and the structure and financing of oral/dental health care at the population level.
Applicants should have a PhD, DrPH, or ScD in epidemiology, applied statistics, or a related quantitative field with specific knowledge of longitudinal data analysis, survival analysis, and risk prediction. Expertise in R is essential. Familiarity with oral health is helpful but not required. A demonstrated ability to work both independently as well as collaboratively with a multi-disciplinary and diverse team is important.
To apply please submit CV, cover letter and names and contact information of three professional references.
