Qualification Details

A degree in biostatistics, statistics, applied mathematics, or related field is expected. Knowledge of some statistical software (e.g. SAS, Stata, SPSS, R, S-plus) is required. Communication skills are important, as the positions will involve collaborating with non-statistical researchers. Ability to work on multiple tasks at the same time is necessary. Interest in professional development in biostatistics is strongly appreciated. Previous experience in research or consulting in some public-health-related area is desirable but not required. Previous experience of Swedish national-based registers is a strong merit. For the position in the Hagström research group, experience in working with liver disease epidemiology is a merit but not required.

Responsibilities/Job Description

One position will share the time between the Unit of Biostatistics at KI North campus and at CBB at KI South campus, providing statistical support to researchers at KI in the areas of epidemiology, toxicology, and clinical, molecular and genetic research, mentoring of doctoral students and postdocs, and teaching. The other position will provide statistical support to Dr. Hannes Hagström’s research for 80% of their time and work at CBB for the remaining 20%.

The biostatisticians will participate in:

  • planning and designing of research studies
  • statistical analyses and programming
  • interpretation and dissemination of scientific results
  • teaching and seminars
  • data management in collaboration with database developers
  • mentoring of PhD-students and postdocs

The units can provide excellent support and an ideal environment for the new biostatisticians to thrive as researchers and collaborators. The new biostatisticians will be offered the opportunity to attend courses, participate in conferences and workshops, and be involved in the activities of the Units.
