A postdoctoral fellow is required to join the Research Unit for Schizophrenia Epidemiology (RUSE) to work on an externally funded project that aims to determine risk and resilience profiles among maltreated children in the NSW population. The project uses extant longitudinal data obtained within the New South Wales Child Development Study (NSW-CDS), via record linkage of multi-agency administrative records, combined with cross-sectional assessments for children at age 5 and 11 years. The funded project is conducted in collaboration with researchers affiliated with UNSW Schools of Psychiatry and Social Sciences, the Social Policy Research Centre, and relevant government partners. The postdoctoral fellow will conduct advanced statistical analyses according to the research plans, and work with lead investigators to prepare scientific publications, policy briefs, and other reporting materials as required. This full-time (35 hours per week), fixed term position is for 18 months with excellent prospects of renewal.
