Applied Statistics, Biometrics/biostatistics, Data analysis/processing
The Department of Biostatistics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health has openings in the Center for Biostatistics in AIDS Research (CBAR) for Ph.D.-level Research Associate or Research Scientist statisticians. Successful applicants will join over 100 statisticians, epidemiologists and research staff collaborating on the design, monitoring, analysis and reporting of Phase I through Phase IV clinical trials, diagnostic studies and observational studies. Results from such studies have helped to establish the paradigm for the treatment and prevention of HIV and other infectious diseases, and contributed to international treatment and prevention guidelines.
Investigators within CBAR have provided statistical leadership and support for clinical research networks for more than twenty five years. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to work within one of the infectious disease networks in which CBAR provides statistical leadership. Current openings are within the Adult AIDS Clinical Trials Groups (ACTG) and the Antibacterial Resistance Leadership Group (ARLG).
Candidates should have a doctoral degree in biostatistics or statistics with interest in clinical trials and diagnostic studies. The Research Associate position is available for new doctoral graduates. The Research Scientist appointment requires at least two years of clinical trials or related applied experience beyond the doctoral degree.
A successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to provide statistical expertise and leadership in collaborative and methodological research, and successfully work independently in the design, conduct, monitoring and analysis of clinical trials and observational studies.
Strong SAS or R programming with simulation abilities
Strong written and oral communication skills
Ability to effectively work as part of a collaborative team
Ability to mentor and supervise other staff
This is a term appointment, renewable upon mutual consent.
Applicants must apply through the Harvard ARieS application site by submitting a CV, cover letter, transcripts and names of three references. Please also complete the Harvard University application form here. *All applicants will be considered for all current openings unless otherwise specified in cover letter.
About Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health - Center for Biostatistics in AIDS Research
Founded in 1995, The Center for Biostatistics in AIDS Research (CBAR) within the Department of Biostatistics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health is responsible for the design, monitoring, and analysis of numerous federally funded clinical trials of treatment and prevention trials for HIV infection and other infectious diseases, both within the US and internationally.
Our current re...search focuses on methods for patient-focused outcome measures that integrate efficacy and safety outcomes, for competing risks data, for personalizing treatment, and for comparison of technologies (e.g., point of care versus gold standard technologies). We also have a particular focus on the development and application of sophisticated epidemiological models for evaluating treatment benefits accounting for confounding by indication, such as the use of marginal structural models, mediation analysis, and other causal inference approaches.
