Volunteer Basis


We are recruiting a Research Assistant to work with Dr. Ong, a joint faculty at Boston University School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School who specializes in Neurocritical Care whose research focuses on risk stratification of patients with critical neurologic diseases.

The position will entail data management and analysis of a large retrospective database of large ischemic stroke patients, image feature measurement and organization, an assistance with two prospective studies surveying neurocritical care practice and feedback on a real-time automatic risk prediction calculator of swelling after ischemic stroke.

Candidates ideally would have background and proficiency in writing protocols, handling datasets, R or Python. RAs will gain experience in large retrospective clinical studies, dynamic risk prediction, machine learning models, and epidemiology under the guidance of Dr. Ong. The RA will also have opportunities to gain experience in mixed effects modeling, natural language processing tools, and trajectory analysis under the guidance of collaborators including Dr. Josee Dupuis, Chair of Biostatistics at the BU School of Public Health, and Dr. Ludovic Trinquart, Associate Professor of Biostatistics at Tufts School of Medicine. The RA will have opportunities to work at both BU School of Medicine and with our active collaborators at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Our interdisciplinary team includes Dr. Agni Orfanoudaki, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Oxford University, and leaders in the field of Neuro-cerebrovascular disease including Drs.
