We seek candidates with skills, passion, experience, and leadership aspirations to support and grow the DOPPS Program, a flagship research program at Arbor Research since 1996. The DOPPS Program includes its longstanding international hemodialysis cohort study (DOPPS), and newer studies in peritoneal dialysis (PDOPPS) and advanced chronic kidney disease (CKDopps). The DOPPS Program is active in over twenty countries, and is funded by an industry consortium with public funding support for ancillary studies. This is a superlative opportunity for academic productivity and visibility, pursuit of new scientific opportunities, and mentoring of clinician and non-clinician scientists. An innovative spirit and collaborative, respectful approach to team leadership are absolute requirements.
