The Road Safety Research Team is seeking a full-time Research Associate to work on a portfolio of grant-funded research projects that use administrative data and the techniques of clinical epidemiology to examine medical risk factors for traffic crash. The successful candidate will report to Principal Investigator (PI) Dr. John A. Staples, a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine.


One of the key initial responsibilities of the successful applicant will be to manage a newly funded research project entitled "Motor vehicle crash risk after cardioverter-defibrillator implantation: A population-based evaluation" (the MVC-ICD study). The project will leverage British Columbia's linked administrative health and driving data sets and will entail several analyses including a retrospective cohort study and a case-crossover study. Key preliminary tasks will include obtaining UBC Clinical Research Ethics Board approval, applying for data access from Cardiac Services BC, working with analysts to clean data and impute missing values in the provincial cardiac device registry, managing the Population Data BC Data Access Request process, and obtaining approval to access driving data from the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC). Subsequent tasks will include working with a Road Safety Research Team statistician to direct study analyses, drafting and submitting manuscripts, and leveraging established relationships and data access to engage in knowledge translation and to develop related research projects that will culminate in additional high-impact academic publications.


More information about the MVC-ICD study can be found online: http://webapps.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/funding/detail_e?pResearchId=8334335&p_version=CIHR&p_language=E&p_session_id=3035778


The successful applicant will also be responsible for:


- Independently conceiving, designing and developing novel research projects and writing successful grant applications that appropriately address study design, statistical considerations, and budgetary elements;
- Ensuring compliance with all procedures and requirements for submission to internal and external funding agencies;
- Providing overall project management of research studies, including protocol development and submission, research ethics board applications, data access applications, data analysis and interpretation, and the drafting and revision of manuscripts based on study findings;
- Managing and mentoring study personnel (including Research Assistants, Undergraduate Science Co-op students and postgraduate medical trainees);
- Contributing to the development of a broader research program and the future growth of the Road Safety Research Team.


Successful applicants will have completed a Doctorate degree in a health-related field. Prior experience with large scale epidemiology projects, grant and protocol development, project management, and grant management are required. All applicants must have superb oral and written communication skills, including demonstrated excellence in academic writing.


Anticipated start date: July 1, 2019. One-year term with possibility of extension. Extension beyond a year is dependent on securing additional research funds. The start date will be July 2019. Negotiation for a part-time (FTE >= 0.8) position may be possible. The salary will be commensurate with the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.


The Road Safety Research Team includes two Principal Investigators (Dr Staples and Dr Jeffrey R Brubacher, Associate Professor, UBC Department of Emergency Medicine), a full-time epidemiologist, a full-time statistician and a flexible number of postgraduate, graduate, and undergraduate trainees.


Interested individuals should submit a cover letter a letter describing research interests, a CV, a writing sample, and contact information for three referees. A single pdf file containing these items should be emailed to:
