Biostatistics Assist./Assoc. Prof. - the Institute for Informatics, Data Science and Biostatistics

Please visit the following link for a full position posting: facultyopportunities.wustl.edu/apply/Posting/Detail/1010929 The Institute for Informatics, Data Science and Biostatistics (I2DB) is a comprehensive home for Biomedical Informatics and Data Science research, education, and services spanning WU, BJC, and affiliated entities. I2DB was created in response to the changes currently being experienced across the modern healthcare and life sciences environments wherein there has been a fundamental shift towards trans-disciplinary, integrative, and data-intensive approaches to basic, clinical, translational, and population-level research. These developments have been coupled with the widespread use of information technology platforms to re-engineer of healthcare delivery and achieve greater value alongside improved outcomes and safety. A primary objective of Trial-CARE is to evolve into a fully integrated clinical trial coordinating center platform that brings together expertise in clinical trial design, methodology, and data management (from Biostatistics); regulatory affairs; mobile technology research; and clinical coordinating center function, project management, and general study management (from Trial-CARE). We wish to provide data coordination/management at a sufficiently high level of standardization and rigor to enable WU faculty to compete for and win large-scale clinical trial and network NIH grants and lead FDA-regulated clinical studies. Guidance and execution of 21 CFR Part 11-compliant trial services, including e-consent and data management using REDCap Cloud and other platforms, will be offered through the Trial-CARE Part 11 Services Unit which represents a collaboration among the CCS, I2DB, and other research support units. Basic Qualifications In collaboration with the Trial-CARE clinical trial support service, we seek highly qualified applicants for a faculty position at Assistant Professor or Associate Professor rank on the Research, or Investigator track. Successful candidates will be expected to establish robust, extramurally funded research and educational programs in collaboration with other WU faculty that engage the broad range of research and clinical programs at WUSM and BJC. The particular focus of this position is to help Trial-CARE become an enabling force that supports WU faculty investigators in developing and leading clinical trials of increasing scope, complexity, and ambition. Candidates should have a PhD in biostatistics, statistics or a related field, at least 5 years of experience in managing clinical trial data, and a substantial track record of extramural funding, peer-reviewed publications, and trainee mentorship. Additional Qualifications The ideal candidate for this position would have demonstrable experience in biostatistics and clinical trial support and leadership that speak to an ability to excel in the following work areas: (1) collaborate with other clinical research experts in guiding faculty investigators who wish to develop and lead complex (often multicenter or FDA-regulated) investigator-initiated clinical trials; (2) help research teams consider a range of options for clinical trial design, including adaptive designs that seek to maximize trial efficiency; (3) support the development of funding proposals for carefully selected studies with strong potential to obtain large-scale funding; (4) serve as the faculty biostatistical lead and data coordinating center chair for funded studies, including NIH-sponsored multicenter trials, including overseeing the development of statistical analysis plans tailored to the necessary level of rigor; (5) actively collaborate with other clinical research leaders/staff in advancing WU’s clinical trial infrastructure, including playing a central role in I2DB’s participation in Trial-CARE’s 21 CFR Part 11 data management initiative. As such, demonstrated experience with leadership of NIH-sponsored data coordinating centers, FDA regulated studies, and multidisciplinary collaborative work would be of particular interest. Special Instructions Candidates should submit a cover letter and CV to Philip R.O. Payne, PhD, Chief Data Scientist & Associate Dean, c/o Amy Reily, Director of Business Operations (amy.d.reily@wustl.edu)
