The Department of Epidemiology, Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University seeks a data analyst who will have the opportunity to work on several collaborative studies that partner with the Georgia Center for Cancer Statistics using public health and healthcare data for behavioral, social and molecular cancer epidemiology. Based on skills, knowledge, abilities, and interests, the candidate would have the option to work on projects ranging from multilevel and spatial analyses to epigenome-wide association studies and analysis of tumor biomarkers in the context of behavioral factors and social stressors across the life-course. The candidate is expected to increase their methodological and substantive knowledge of cancer, social and molecular epidemiology; build skills for developing and implementing research studies; and potentially teach and mentor trainees and other staff in support of the Emory academic and research missions.
The analyst will perform population health research activities, including developing and implementing analytical protocols, performing data analyses, preparing methodology and data interpretation narratives for manuscripts for submission to peer-reviewed journals, assisting in developing grant proposals, generating reports, and providing other research and methodological support for existing and ongoing studies. Responsibilities include creating Microsoft Access databases derived from multiple data sources using SAS/R/SQL coding designed with quantitative and qualitative methods for descriptive, exploratory, causal, predictive, and inferential analyses. These analyses will support the development of predictive algorithms for cancer recurrence. The candidate will be working closely with team members and should be capable of working independently as well as with scientific teams of diverse disciplines.
The analyst will work under the guidance of the principal investigators and will have the opportunity to collaborate with study investigators in Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Oncology.
