The Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics is
currently looking for a biostatistician to work on a multidisciplinary
project involving Swedish population registers.

There are approximately 200 persons working at the department
including 20 in the Biostatistics group. The department is involved
in a number of large research projects spanning many research fields.
We make extensive use of data from national health registers,
questionnaires, and an increasing proportion of projects also
contain genetic and molecular data. The biostatisticians also conduct their
own research in biostatistics and epidemiology
(http://ki.se/biostatistics).

The successful candidate will work under the guidance of a Professor of
Biostatistics and will have access to two applied biostatisticians who also
work on the same project.

Area of responsibilities/duties:
We are currently looking for a qualified statistician to work on a
multidisciplinary project titled “Transmitted and Acquired Determinants of
Health across the Life-Span”, funded by Vetenskapsrådet under SIMSAM
(Swedish Initiative for research on Microdata in the Social and Medical
Sciences,
http://www.vr.se/huvudmeny/bidragsbeslut/forskningensinfrastrukturer).
The biostatistician will be responsible for recognizing and applying
appropriate statistical models to complex data analysis in several
applications and for developing new approaches.

The project involves five distinct research themes, covering:
(1)early life exposure to antibiotics, family history and subsequent
childhood health,
(2)effects of psychiatric disorders in parents on adolescent criminality
in offspring,
(3)prenatal exposures and familial contribution to obesity in young
adulthood and
its influence on subsequent cardiovascular morbidity
(4)family history, transgenerational socioeconomic status and
cardiovascular diseases
(5)familial cancer data for clinical counseling and cancer genetics.

The common focus of the SIMSAM projects is the use of Swedish register
data to address the research objectives. An important component of the
project is the development of statistical methods for valid and optimal
use of data from population registers.

The position is for one year with the possibility of extension for
another year.

Qualifications: You should have a PhD in biostatistics or statistics.
Experience of medical research and/or epidemiology is valuable.
We put great emphasis on communication skills, since a large part
of our work is collaboration with non-statisticians. You should have
good collaborative skills, and be eager to deepen your knowledge
in epidemiology, biology or medicine as the need arises.
Swedish and English are the working languages at the department. The
position provides an ideal opportunity for a recent PhD graduate
interested to develop a career in biostatistics.
