Recruiting graduate students
We are looking for a brilliant graduate student (MSc or PhD) for exciting projects in predictive analytics and decision modeling.
The project is part of the $2M The Canadian Institutes of Health Research-funded IMPACT study (https://resp.core.ubc.ca/research/Specific_Projects/IMPACT) involves creating sophisticated risk prediction models for patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (to predict disease outcomes), implementing these models into electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, and evaluating their impact on patient care and outcomes. This is an analytically demanding project that requires innovations on risk prediction using EHR data, dynamic updating of risk prediction models, and novel methods for quantifying uncertainty in predictions and evaluating the cost-effectiveness of risk and treatment effect prediction.
The candidate is expected to contribute to the methodological aspects of predictive analytics (risk prediction modeling, treatment benefit modeling, value of information analysis). The candidate will have multiple opportunities for interacting with several other trainees, post-doctoral fellows, research staff, and faculty members. The RESP lab is embedded within Collaboration for Outcomes Research and Evaluation at Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, one of the largest health outcomes groups in Vancouver.
The candidate will require quantitative background (preferably a degree in statistics, mathematics, or a similar field) and a lot of motivation for pursuing a successful career as a scientist.
