The Division of Population Science’s Center for Outcomes and Policy Research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is seeking a Statistical Programmer to work collaboratively with medical researchers and statisticians within our division. 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. Qualified candidates will have formal training in statistics or biostatistics and strong statistical computing skills.
Statisticians collaborate with scientific investigators and other statisticians in the design and analysis of clinical trials, basic translational studies, observational data from surveys, medical records, or administrative data, data from the study of genetic markers in human populations or animal models of cancer, experiments on the development of new laboratory assays and data from population-based studies. They are experts in the technical aspects of statistical theory and practice required for their work and highly trained in statistical computing. Experienced statisticians are expected to work independently and mentor junior statisticians.
