This occupational health work involves a range of intervention techniques, experimental designs, and analysis methods. Interventions have involved techniques such as socially supportive structured group processes, goal setting, and behavioral self-monitoring using both low and higher-tech methods (e.g., mobile-adaptive websites).
Project designs include cluster randomized controlled trials, as well as smaller pre/post test pilot studies. Both quantitative and qualitative analysis methods are planned to address various specific aims. Postdoctoral fellows are strongly supported in their professional development, including guidance on career trajectory and grant/scientific writing.
Duties may include intervention development and implementation, data management and analysis, and drafting of papers. Good interpersonal skills are a must to work in the collegial atmosphere of the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences.
