Job Summary
Under the guidance of the faculty of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Minds Matter concussion team, the postdoctoral fellow (postdoc) will carry out research that advances knowledge focused on the development and assessment of objective physiological measures of brain function after concussion for children and adolescents. The field is currently limited by reliance on subjective and non-specific symptoms and in need of evolution to a more objective means by which to determine the presence of injury and the trajectory of recovery. CHOP is pioneering objective measures of injury and dysfunction. The successful candidate will work with a multi-disciplinary team of injury scientists including epidemiologists, bioengineers, sports and emergency medicine physicians, and nurses at CHOP’s Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP). As an integral member of this interdisciplinary research team, the postdoc will have opportunities to address a diverse range of research challenges using data from ongoing funded studies. This data collection is embedded both within a secondary school setting (for healthy adolescent athletes) and within CHOP Sports Medicine clinic and Emergency Department (for injured youth). These opportunities include but are not limited to (1) analysis of diverse measures of neurophysiology post injury to determine which measures or suite of measures are most diagnostically sensitive to concussion and prognostic of adverse long term outcomes in adolescents, (2) development of a personalized medicine approach to concussion management through advanced machine learning and related analytical techniques, and (3) quantification of the effect of a season of sport on measures of neurofunction

Job Responsibilities
The postdoc experience will serve to extend, refine, and enhance skills necessary for professional and career development and will enable the individual to broaden his/her scientific background by acquiring new research capabilities. It is expected that this individual will conduct independent scholarly research and will contribute directly to the overall research goals of the Minds Matter research group. During the course of the position, the postdoc will be expected to contribute to composition and submission of grants, to supervise junior team members, and to publish his/her research. Opportunities for submission of a career development award will be emphasized. The postdoc will be expected to participate in project planning, interpretation/ evaluation of data, and communication of results. They will be trained in a comprehensive and unique outreach approach by the CIRP Outreach and Advocacy team embedded within CIRP. The postdoc will also be expected to acquire technical, advanced data analysis, and manuscript/grant writing skills and participate in seminars, lectures, poster sessions, and presentations at national meetings. The postdoctoral fellow also may be required to develop new methods and protocols for research and assist with the development of other research projects for the Minds Matter team
