The research group of Dr. Sherri Rose ( is seeking multiple postdoctoral scholars in health data science. The scope of postdoctoral projects is broad, and trainees from any discipline who have training or interest in quantitative methods tailored to solve problems in health care are welcome to apply. Postdoctoral scholars will have the flexibility to pursue topics within Dr. Rose’s ongoing areas of research (i.e., statistical machine learning methodology and applications for generalizability, causal inference, algorithmic fairness, comparative effectiveness research, risk adjustment, and health program evaluation) or develop a new project idea with Dr. Rose.
The culture of Dr. Rose's group is inquisitive, collaborative, kind, and inclusive so that scholars can do their best work.

Dr. Rose comes from a low-income background and is committed to increasing justice, equity, diversity and inclusion in the mathematical and health sciences. Postdoctoral scholars will have the opportunity to engage in programming related to these efforts (e.g., conferences, mentoring visiting summer students from underrepresented backgrounds) if they so choose.
