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:
