Subject: [d-ssc] Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Biostatistics at NCIC Clinical Trials Group

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Biostatistics


A postdoctoral fellowship is available at the NCIC Clinical Trials Group (CTG)  / Cancer Clinical Trials Division of the Cancer Research Institute of Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. 


This breast cancer postdoctoral fellowship is targeted in particular at applied biostatistical development of a new paradigm for meta-analyses when there is evidence of model misspecification with the standard assumption of proportional hazards, characterization of model robustness for parametric survival analysis, and application utilizing data from a number of international breast cancer clinical trials to assess the effects of body mass index and weight on therapeutic efficacy, as well as the role of the insulin-growth factor pathway. The successful candidate will participate in methodological development for design and analysis of clinical trials under the supervision of an experienced senior biostatistician and clinicians. There will also be opportunities  to explore other facets of breast cancer with the rich data resources of NCIC CTG. Candidates must possess a Ph.D. in statistics, biostatistics or closely related field, knowledge of SAS programming, procedures or other statistical software. Preference will be given to applicants with training and research experience in survival analysis and meta-analyses.  


The successful applicant will hold an Astra Zeneca Breast Cancer Fellowship, funded through an unrestricted grant to the NCIC CTG. The initial fellowship will start as early as October 1st, 2010 and complete the 2010/2011 academic year, ending on June 30, 2011. Renewal is possible for a full second academic year.  Review of applications will begin September 13th, 2010. Interested persons are encouraged to send curriculum vitae and have two letters of reference sent to:
