Full Text of JOE Listing:

Applications are invited for one year post-doctoral fellowships at Ivey Business School, Western University.

Applicants will work directly on a cluster randomized trial of workplace wellness programs. The Sun Life–Ivey Canadian Wellness ROI study is a high profile, treatment and control group study, with 18 sites and over 800 participants enrolled across Canada. The scope, methodology and depth of this study is already gaining attention internationally. Post-docs will help drive the data analysis, knowledge dissemination strategies and prepare and co-author manuscripts and conference presentations under the supervision of the investigation team.

Candidates must have a PhD degree in economics, statistics, epidemiology, health sciences or related quantitative discipline. Applicants must have obtained their PhD three years or less ago. Candidates should be familiar with program evaluation techniques and must have strong quantitative modelling experience using STATA, R, or similar software packages. This is an excellent opportunity for new Ph.D. graduates to apply research methods, and benefit from an active, well-funded, research environment and publication opportunity. The successful candidate(s) will, as part of a Mitacs/Sun Life funded internship, engage with business organizations participating in the study.
(One year appointment, subject to budget approval. Contract may be extended contingent upon research performance.)
