Research Professor position is available in the lab of Lyne Racette, PhD, at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology, Indiana University School of Medicine.
Project description: The long-term goal of this project is to improve the detection and monitoring of glaucoma progression. The project will develop parametric and non-parametric statistical methods, such as bootstrapping and permutation analysis to jointly use structural and functional data obtained in the longitudinal clinical research studies.
The project will build upon previous work in which we have developed a dynamic structure-function model for glaucoma progression. The successful applicant will develop and disseminate the findings at scientific meetings and in publications.
The successful candidate will hold a PhD degree in Vision Sciences with graduate training in Statistics, Biostatistics, or a related field. Applicants with a strong background in computer science, applied mathematics or engineering are welcome to apply. Excellent programming skills are essential.
Preference will be given to candidates familiar with the R environment for statistical programming and MATLAB, strong oral and written skills in English and demonstrated productivity. Knowledge of glaucoma and dynamic models is desirable but not necessary
