Dr. Weaver in the Department of Occupational Therapy at CSU is looking for a post-doctoral research fellow with skills in measurement and an interest in ‘measurement-in-action’ and implementation research. A background in rehabilitation, particularly acute or post-acute care will be helpful. This post-doctoral fellow will support an implementation research study examining the adoption of a Recovery Ruler, a tool that visualizes assessment result information and facilitates information exchange between practitioners and family member(s) of a patient that is in a disordered state of consciousness, across 3 United States clinical sites. The fellow may also support two additional funded studies: 1) a validation of cut-points and generation of indices of responsiveness for the Coma Recovery Scale-Revised and 2) development of a shared decision-making assessment for rehabilitation. Funded research projects have national and international collaborators. Responsibilities will include working closely with collaborators, overseeing undergraduate and graduate research assistants, data management, facilitating recruitment for prospective data collection, data collection, data analysis and interpretation, and dissemination of results.
Opportunities for the post-doctoral fellow include:

3) opportunities to be involved in community and healthcare research,
