POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITY in SLEEP MEDICINE

Charles A. Czeisler, Steven W. Lockley, Christopher P. Landrigan, Laura K. Barger
Harvard Work Hours, Health and Safety Group
Division of Sleep Medicine, Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School

The Harvard Work Hours Health and Safety Group focuses on understanding the consequences of extended work hours and disordered sleep schedules on health and safety across a range of professions and populations. We also develop and test countermeasures to prevent the increased risk of accidents and injury for both worker health and public safety with the long-term aim of providing data to inform evidence-based policy and legislative decisions. Recently, we have addressed the impact of reducing extended duration (>24 h) work shifts on physician health and patient safety and developed and tested a comprehensive sleep disorders screening and fatigue management program in several police forces.

We seek a post-doctoral fellow to join our team who will participate in ongoing projects and develop new research initiatives. These projects will primarily be ‘field-based’ programs involving data collection under real-world conditions but conducted using robust clinical trial designs. The Division of Sleep Medicine is interdisciplinary, with members from backgrounds in physiology, psychology, medicine, and mathematics and the successful candidate will be encouraged to collaborate within and outside the Division as they pursue their research interests. The rich environment of the Division of Sleep Medicine (http://sleep.med.harvard.edu) offers many opportunities for career development and education.

The candidate will have knowledge of clinical study design and experimental statistics. Candidates with experience in field- and/or laboratory based clinical trials are encouraged to apply. A background in Sleep Medicine is desirable but not required. An educational program in Sleep Medicine will be provided which the candidate will be expected to attend. The initial appointment will be for 2 years, renewable annually thereafter.

Interested candidates should send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references in hard copy and electronic format to:

    Great Sleep Magazine seeks responsible partners in media related sleep study
    To better understand the sleep consumers and serve our sponsors Great Sleep Magazine is launching a nationwide sleep survey targeting only our sleep deprived citizens. Your web-sites generally attract those with sleep problems. We would like to request permission to add the sleep survey link to your web-site.
    Our goal is to find out the overall commonalities in demographics and behavior characteristics of our nation of sleep sufferers. In return we will post a link to your web-site on highdesertpublishing.com and share all information regarding our findings. To assure confidentiality we will not track any e-mail addresses of respondents, just the blind responses.

    Survey Link:
