We have an opportunity for a Full Time Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join the Clinical Epidemiology & Biostatistics Unit (CEBU) at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (affiliated with the University of Melbourne) in Melbourne on a 2-year contract.


This exciting role is designed to attract talented early-career postdoctoral biostatisticians who wish to develop a methodological research portfolio in cutting-edge areas of biostatistics, while also engaging collaboratively in providing analytic support to a range of clinical trials and epidemiological studies that are addressing 21st century challenges in health.


The position will have a primary focus (~60%) on conducting methodological research relating to problems in the analysis of missing data in the context of complex longitudinal studies and modern analytic approaches (e.g. multilevel structures), funded by a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) grant. The appointee will work closely with researchers at the MCRI in this area as well as colleagues in the broader Victorian Centre for Biostatistics (ViCBiostat). The biostatistician will also provide collaborative statistical support to a range of research studies, including both trials and cohort studies, housed within the MCRI, and may be involved in the development of new capacity for adaptive trials within the institute. In these collaborative roles the appointee will work closely with research teams that include senior investigators, postdoctoral fellows, research assistants and doctoral/other students, to develop study designs and analysis plans, and to support and conduct analyses.


Salary Range:  $93,639 – $109,773 (depending on qualifications and experience) per annum plus superannuation and salary packaging

Closing Date: Monday 7 October 2019 (Australian Eastern Standard Time)
