National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
The National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL) is offering a training opportunity as an Analytical Research Fellow with a masters’ degree or other qualifications with the Surveillance and Interventions Team within the Research Branch.
The Surveillance and Interventions Team (SIT) within NPPTL’s Research Branch conducts research, develops interventions, and identifies innovative methods (e.g., new software tools, training methods, practices, equipment, etc.) that increase worker compliance with proper selection, care, maintenance, and use of PPE. The SIT provides systematic collection, analysis and interpretation of PPE use practices, including investigation of barriers to effective PPE use. In order to educate workers on proper PPE use practices, the SIT produces and disseminates technical information, research findings, guidelines and training materials.
The Analytical Research Fellow will have opportunities to work with NPPTL researchers to perform data analyses in the development of manuscripts or other research efforts. Opportunities to learn and apply scientific theory and methodological frameworks in a wide range of research projects and initiatives are available.
The ideal SIT Analytical Research Fellow should have knowledge and/or experience in statistics consulting, designing, implementing and/or evaluating field studies and laboratory experiments, and managing data. Masters’ degree (or higher) in epidemiology, statistics or biostatistics is preferred, however, other degrees can be considered. Applicants should have experience with parametric and non-parametric statistical techniques, power studies, and how to make scientific arguments using data. Ability and experience to communicate statistical methods to lay audiences is important.
This position is part of the Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education (ORISE) Research Participation Program. The ORISE Research Participation Program at CDC is a training and succession planning mechanism designed to provide students, postgraduates, and university faculty opportunities to participate in project-specific CDC research, current public health research, and developmental activities.
This opportunity is located in Pittsburgh, PA. The annual salary for a masters’ prepared candidate is $52,858. For a PhD trained candidate the annual salary is $63,953. Health insurance (individual and family) is available.
