Open Postdoctoral position, faculty mentor Daniel Tawfik

An opportunity for a postdoctoral fellow is available in the lab of Dr. Daniel Tawfik in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine at Stanford University. The Tawfik lab studies the use of electronic health record metadata in identifying structures and processes that promote high quality healthcare.

The position will have the opportunity to lead projects and contribute to ongoing work with other faculty, fellows, and PIs at Stanford and other collaborating institutions. These projects will explore the use of EHR metadata in creating measures that quantify several aspects of team dynamics within health care settings, relate those measures to traditional knowledge sources about teams, and use them to develop prediction models for patient safety events.
 
In addition to priority projects, the Postdoc will have the opportunity to work with other researchers both at Stanford and within our larger national network of collaborators with similar research programs.

Required Qualifications: 

o Highly motivated postdoctoral researcher with:
• Experience in relational databases, big data curation and analysis
• Expertise in machine learning, including building and deploying prediction models
• Strong data science coding skills in programs and languages such as Python, R, Stata, and SQL

• Experience with mixed methods research approaches preferred

Required Application Materials: 

o Curriculum Vitae
o Cover letter including statement of interest, research experience, and career goals
o Contact information for 3 references
o Up to 2 key papers or other scientific writing samples that demonstrate your research
