The Division of Population Science’s Center for Outcomes and Policy Research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is seeking a statistician to work collaboratively with medical researchers and statisticians within our division. Qualified candidates will have formal training in statistics or biostatistics and strong statistical computing skills.
Researchers in the Division of Population Science’s Center for Outcomes and Policy Research aim to enhance the outcomes of interventions to prevent and treat cancer from both efficacy and cost-effectiveness perspectives. Investigations focus on optimizing the patient experience by ensuring that clinical and societal resources from interventions to services are utilized in the best possible way. By identifying determinants of the quality of care patients receive, investigators can work toward eliminating barriers to optimal care and translate their findings and programs on a large scale.
The Statistician will work with multiple investigators on research projects from the early stages of study design through the later stages of manuscript preparation and submission to academic journals.
The Statistician will also assist multiple investigators in the preparation of research grants. Specifically:
There will be opportunities to work on projects involving statistical methodological development as well. The statistician may also work on developing or testing new statistical software for novel statistical techniques.
The Statistician will be responsible for managing and organizing data files and analysis program codes of the assigned projects, so that any other statisticians in this group can easily take over and reproduce the results. This person is expected to demonstrate a high degree of independence in these activities described above.
