Employer: Duke University
Located in: Durham, North Carolina
Degree Required: Masters
The Duke Innovative Pain Therapy team at Duke University's School of Medicine Department of Anesthesiology is looking for up to 4 masters or PhD students to assist with a research-based software project. The project centers around customized clinical care for pain management, using Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT). Students will focus on survey instrument conversion from our legacy format to an R-based format for the new CAT system. The survey instrument portion of the project will continue until our existing survey instruments have been converted, with ad hoc work available for new instruments as they are added throughout the project.
Students will need to have experience with the R programming language, and be able to work on the project on a consistent basis (ideally at least a few hours per week). Students will be expected to work independently, but will have opportunities to work with our Anesthesiology IT department and the Pain Management staff throughout the project. The project is expected to continue for 12-15 months, beginning January 2, 2019. The time frame for working on the project is flexible, but there may be longer-term opportunities for the project to expand beyond the 12-15 month timeline outlined above, and, depending on the success of the project, we could potentially provide ongoing opportunities for those individuals who express interest.
Please note that this is a paid position, and rates depend on experience and education level. Please contact me at the email below with your resume attached if you are interested in applying.
