A couple of weeks ago I announced that my team was looking for a new post-doc. I received many applications, some even from as far as Italy and Spain. Out of this pile of candidates we were able to find an individual candidate who fulfilled all the requirements we had mind and than some. It is great that she will join the team in December. JH has worked in the field of epidemiology for quite some time and is not only experienced in setting up new projects and provide physicians with methodological input on their clinical research projects, but she also has a great interest in the more methodological side of epidemiology. For example, she is co-author/developer of the program DAGitty which can be used to draw causal diagrams. She is also speaker for the working group methodology of the German Society of Epidemiology (dgEpi). Her background in psychology also means that she brings a lot of knowledge on methods that we as a team do not have so far. In short, a great addition to the team. Welcome JH!
