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.

The culture of Dr. Rose's group is inquisitive, collaborative, kind, and inclusive so that scholars can do their best work. We have high standards for rigor, quality, and ethics and help each other learn in order to reach these objectives.

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.
