The Clinical Neurotrauma Laboratory, under the direction ofDr. Kei Kawata, is seeking an ambitious, motivated postdoctoral fellow to join their team. This is an institution-funded position for a minimum of two years. The position includes benefits and compensation that are in congruent withNIHstipend levels. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, but applications received by 10 November 2022 will be given full consideration, and the search will remain open until suitable candidate is found. The earliest anticipated start date is 15 January 2023 but is negotiable.
The Clinical Neurotrauma Laboratory studies the causes, modifying factors, and consequences of traumatic brain injury with particular emphasis on concussive/subconcussive neurodegeneration. We use a multimodal approach that combines fluid biomarkers, neuro-ophthalmologic measures, head impact kinematics, and neuroimaging.
We have an immediate opening for a Research Associate – Biostatistician position in the Biostatistics Consulting Center in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics within the School of Public Health- Bloomington at Indiana University, Bloomington.
The Biostatistics Consulting Center provides statistical support to health-related research projects from SPH, IU, and external universities and organizations. Services include study design, power and sample size calculations, randomization processes, survey sampling, data management, data analysis, interpretations, and writing statistical methods and results portions of manuscripts. The team focuses on Rigor, Reproducibility, and Transparency to provide collaborators with high-quality scientific work for publication.
The Biostatistician will work under the supervision of the Executive Director of the center while working directly with faculty Principal Investigators (PIs) on their respective grants and projects. They will assist with all parts of the research process from grant preparation and study design to randomization and clinical trial management or data collection and data management, to data analysis, statistical programming, and preparation of tables, plots, and manuscript text. The biostatistician will be responsible for developing and maintaining syntax code with organized workflow and rigorous standards, as well as reviewing code from others on the team for analysis verification.
A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, to work with Dr. Luis Fernando Chaves. This is a school-funded position for one year that can be renewed for an additional year depending on successful performance. The position includes benefits and compensation that is congruent with NIH stipend levels. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, but applications received by December 20, 2022 will be given full consideration, and the search will remain open until suitable candidate is found. The earliest anticipated start date is January 20, 2023.
The postdoctoral fellow will join a multi-disciplinary team of epidemiologists, ecologists, modelers, vector biologists, geographers and other social and environmental scientists to do research on the impacts of changing environments on vector-borne diseases. The primary goal of this project is to understand non-linear responses of insect vectors, and the diseases they transmit, to land use / land cover changes and environmental variability, as driven by social, economic and political factors. The ultimate goal is to develop new models that integrate insights and theory from the social sciences into transmission mechanisms or that articulate the impacts of different modes of environmental variability in vector ecology and/or diseases sensitive to environmental change.
About Us: The Chaves lab studies the impacts of environmental change on the ecology of insect vectors and the diseases they transmit. The approach combines both field work and modeling to answer questions about the impact of both rising temperatures and changing environments on vectors and their associated diseases. We also study the coupling of natural and social phenomena in pathogen transmission, primarily looking at political, economic and geographic factors that affect the emergence and transmission of pathogens. In general, our research aims to generate results that can inform decision making aimed at reducing the burden of vector-borne and neglected tropical diseases.
A postdoctoral position is available in the Sensorimotor Neurophysiology Lab, under the direction of Dr. Hannah Block. This is a grant-funded position for a minimum of two years and is renewable for up to two additional years. The position includes benefits and compensation is congruent with NIH stipend levels. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, but applications received by 15 October 2022 will be given full consideration and the search will remain open until suitable candidate is found. The earliest anticipated start date is 1 January 2023.
The focus of the NIH-funded project is the neural basis of multisensory and motor learning in the control of hand movement. The project comprises behavioral, neurophysiological, and neuroimaging experiments in healthy adults.
Responsibilities: The successful applicant will be expected to lead studies and generate new knowledge that is congruent with the overall goal of the funded project. This includes generating peer-reviewed publications. Resources are available for travel to scientific meetings and formal training is available with regards to grant writing, research ethics, rigor and reproducibility, and clinical trial management. There will also be opportunities to develop your own independent research interests and to gain expertise in transcranial magnetic stimulation and fMRI techniques.
About us: The Sensorimotor Neurophysiology Lab (https://www.blocklab.net/) specializes in visuo-proprioceptive control of upper limb movement. We have a robotic manipulandum (Kinarm Endpoint lab, BKIN) and various custom touchscreen setups for behavioral and perceptual experiments, along with 2D virtual reality displays. For transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), we have equipment for single, paired pulse, and repetitive stimulation protocols (Magstim) as well as neuronavigation (Brainsight, Rogue Research) and EMG. The Imaging Research Facility (IRF), located across the street, has a Siemens Prisma MRI system and associated computing system exclusively for research use, as well as a mock MRI scanner for subject training (https://irf.indiana.edu/). The IRF employs a full-time MR physicist and technicians who run the scanner.

Two postdoctoral research fellow positions are available in the Tekwe-Zoh lab at Indiana University, School of Public Health – Department of Epidemiology/Biostatistics, to work on a recently NIDDK-funded R01 project on measurement error, missing data, and unmeasured confounding. The candidates will join a dynamic and collaborative research team led by Drs. Carmen D. Tekwe and Roger S. Zoh in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Indiana University to develop and apply advanced statistical approaches for evaluating device-based measures of physical activity and relationships with nutrition and obesity.
Successful candidates will conduct research on semiparametric and Bayesian nonparametric methods in measurement error, missing data, and functional data. The developed methods will be applied to studies of wearable device–based measures of physical activity and self-reported measures of dietary intake in the context of obesity research. One candidate will be primarily supervised by Dr. Carmen Tekwe and will work on parametric and semiparametric methods of measurement error correction and missing data approaches in functional data, health disparities, nutrition, physical activity, and obesity. The second candidate will be primarily supervised by Dr. Zoh and will work on Bayesian semiparametric and nonparametric methods, high-dimensional data testing, and physical activity assessment. Both candidates will also collaborate with Dr. Lan Xue from the Department of Statistics at Oregon State University.
The candidates are expected to be self-motivated and able to work independently. The duties associated with these positions include statistical programming, authoring, and co-authoring of manuscripts, and participating in research meetings, mentoring of graduate students, and candidates are required to have excellent communication skills. The candidates will also be responsible for the development of R packages and relevant software associated with this research.
