SUBFUNCTION DEFINITION: To assist researchers in the design, execution, and analyses of straightforward clinical, epidemiological and translational studies
CCHMC SALARY GRADE:12
???Analysis Design Assists principal investigator in selecting appropriate study design to address research hypotheses, such as identifying study design flaws and suggesting corrective changes, e.g., the lack of a proper control group. Prepares drafts of statistical analysis and sample size calculation sections for grant proposals. Recognizes various epidemiologic, clinical or basic research study designs and the analysis implications of those designs
??? Data Files Constructs moderately complex datasets for analysis, including sub-setting, linking, or transforming data prior to exporting to statistical analysis program formats. Conducts diagnostic checks on data quality, such as identifying outliers, determining whether variables are normally distributed and missing data evaluations. Develop macros in software programs. Advises on database builds for ready use by statisticians. Designs, constructs, maintain, and write development documentation. Serves as a resource to others determining the appropriate statistical methods for a study and in constructing databases.
???Analysis Recommends, based on knowledge and experience, appropriate statistical analyses, given the design of the studies. Drafts statistical analysis plan for review by faculty supervisor and principal investigator. Performs moderately complex statistical analyses, such as repeated measures analysis of variance. Develop macros to generate ongoing regular reports and charts which summarize results from on-going multi-site collaborative. Prepares drafts of sections going into grant proposals.
???Misc. Drafts statistical methods and results sections of manuscripts or abstracts based on analytic findings. Prepares reports (e.g., subject recruitment, summary of safety data and interim analyses for Data Safety Monitoring Board) needed in large studies, especially those involving multiple sites. Acts as a resource in implementing new statistical software and obtains working knowledge of its capabilities. Demonstrates enhanced level of knowledge through continuing education. Utilizes professional skills and applies this to work activities.
Required: ??? Masters degree in related field. May require clinical license, certification or training ??? 3 - 5 years of work experience in a related job discipline ??? or equivalent combination of education and experience
