We’re seeking breakthrough makers! Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia was built on the belief that we can change lives. Today, in every role throughout our hospital, research institute and care network, the 22,000 members of our workforce are finding new ways – big and small – to make a difference for the patients and families we serve.
If you are ready to challenge yourself, be inspired and grow – no matter what your role – you just may be the kind of breakthrough maker who will thrive at CHOP.
CHOP is proud to share that we are ranked No. 1 on Forbes’ 2022 list of America’s Best Large Employers!
The Center for Data Driven Discovery (D3b) at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is seeking a Biostatistician II to join a diverse team of research professionals and to work partner with our more than 30 professional data engineers, developers, data scientists, bioinformatics engineers and bioinformatics scientists committed to accelerating cures for children with cancer and rare diseases. You will be involved in brain tumor research and clinical trial projects characterized with multiple next-generation sequencing or microarray technologies (WGS, WXS, Targeted Panel, RNA-Seq, miRNA, methylation, proteomics, scRNA-Seq) as well as radiology imaging and multi-modal research utilizing AI and machine learning methods.
The candidate will focus on the development of novel methods to implement genomics-driven therapy recommendations for rare pediatric central nervous system tumors that have been characterized as part of an NCI-funded Molecular Characterization Initiative, the Children’s Brain Tumor Network (CBTN), and Pacific Pediatric Neuro-oncology (PNOC) clinical trials. The primary goal of this initiative will be to support precision medicine and clinical decision efforts as part of our ongoing pediatric oncology trials and internal molecular tumor boards for clinical diagnostics. Additionally, the candidate will focus on the development and application of multivariate analysis and novel machine learning methods to predict outcomes of interest, such as prognosis or diagnosis for the patients, based on radiological image features and/or other -omic features such as genomic, proteomic, or immunomic markers.
Job Responsibilities Overview
The responsibilities of this role include the development of predictive models for clinical decision making, the use of real-world data for the design of synthetic control arms, and reporting clinically relevant findings and their interpretation for clinician stakeholders through data visualization and written communications. The candidate will be actively involved throughout the entire process of ongoing research projects, from the study design stage (by performing power analysis and providing design advice prior to the start of the project and patient recruitment to properly evaluate the research hypothesis proposed by the investigator) through development of statistical approaches required during the project and the subsequent reporting of findings. They will further contribute to preparation of grant proposals, manuscripts, conference abstracts/papers or presentations.
The Biostatistician II is a moderately independent role that builds upon an entry level position based on demonstrated increase in consistent proficiency of methods application, programming, interpretation, and communication. This role provides advanced biostatistical services for investigators, including analyses, data preparation, and writing of statistical results on an increasingly independent level, working closely with senior biostatistician and data science team members.
The role will work under the supervision of the D3b Scientific Director, and the technical director of the Clinical and Translational Data Science unit in support of a cross Unit environment. D3b is a highly collaborative environment, and the selected candidate is expected to cooperate as a team player and actively participate in regular meetings and discussions to share their feedback and input on ongoing or new projects.
