The Mind & Brain Health Labs (MBHL) at the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Department of Neurological Sciences is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate with a background in human behavioral research (basic and clinical) in a relevant field. Relevant fields include (but are not limited to) Computer Science, Behavioral Sciences (Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, and Human Factors), Statistics, and Engineering. The Postdoctoral Research Associate should have strong data analytic and research skills. The Postdoctoral Research Associate will play a primary role in the analysis of large, naturalistic datasets on real-world driving behavior, performance, and safety in individuals with and without disease. Analyses will incorporate multidimensional data, including driving, medical, physiologic, computer vision, and geographic information system (GIS) data.

The Postdoctoral Research Associate will intellectually develop research questions and analyses, including contributing to the development of new research questions and funding proposals. This is a great opportunity to get experience with novel datasets and clinical translational research on modeling human performance and safety in real-world settings, in addition to building a CV with presentations, publications, and funded grants.

The Postdoctoral Research Associate will:
o Identify, intellectually develop, and implement research questions on human behavior, physiology, and neurocognitive performance in the context of complex environments, human-machine interactions, and disease.
o Use statistical analyses and other data science approaches to manipulate, analyze, and provide answers to research questions using large amounts of structured and unstructured data.
o Apply your research results (positive and null) to develop future clinical translational research programs and intervention techniques.
o Work closely with MBHL research staff and collaborators (internal and external) to develop innovative new research ideas and data analyses.
o Share research findings with the broader academic community through peer-reviewed conference presentations and publications.
o Follow IRB Protocol, HIPAA, and Standard Operating Procedures in Human Subjects Research.

MBHL (https://www.unmc.edu/mbhl/) is an interdisciplinary group of researchers who are committed to clinical translational research on real-world behavior and safety in healthy and patient populations. Our collaborative team combines expertise from medicine, cognitive science, neuroscience, human factors, driving research, statistics, computer science, biomechanics, and public policy. We focus on understanding how humans behave when interacting with technology in-the-lab and in-the-field, with a focus on mobility and cognition. To address these questions, we study human behavior in the context of human-machine interactions and in complex environments using novel technologies for monitoring of functional abilities, physiology, and performance. We use the results of our research to inform patient and clinician education, policy, and technology development with the goal of improving health, mobility, and quality of life in individuals of all ages.

Questions may be directed to Jennifer Merickel, PhD at jennifer.merickel@unmc.edu

Individuals from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Required Qualifications A PhD in a relevant field. Relevant fields include (but are not limited to) Computer Science, Behavioral Sciences (Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, and Human Factors), Statistics, and Engineering.
o A strong background in statistical modeling and advanced data analysis skills.
o Expert experience with statistical and/or general programming languages (Python, R, and others).
o History of academic publications and conference presentations.
o Excellent organizational and time-management skills and ability to self-direct work.
o Ability to work as a team member.
o Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
Supplemental Qualifications o Specialization in data science and quantitative/computational modeling techniques, including predictive, time series, machine learning, deep learning, and other modeling approaches.
o Prior experience conducting, designing, and analyzing data from human behavioral experimentation (Cognitive, Physical, Neuroscience, Medical, Human Factors), transportation research, and/or human physiology/biomechanics.
o Proficiency in experimental design and implementation.
o Experience with computer vision, GIS, and/or database development.
o Experience cleaning and processing big data (structured/unstructured), including development of automated processing routines and data analysis pipelines.
o Familiarity with tools for computing over large datasets (Hadoop, Spark, SQL, others).
