A position in biostatistics is open at the Center of Biostatistics for Clinical Epidemiology at the School of Medicine and Surgery, University of Milan-Bicocca (located in Monza) for individuals with a PhD in biostatistics/statistic to work on the project “IDEA: Innovative DEsigns and statistical Approaches for biomarker development”.
Based in Monza at the Center of Biostatistics for Clinical Epidemiology, School of Medicine and Surgery, University of Milan-Bicocca (located in Monza).
Type: 12 months contract (renewable)
Applications must be submitted by 6 December 2017, 12 pm
Indicative starting time: January 2018

The candidate will work on the development of novel study designs and statistical analyses for precision medicine, mainly in the presence of a survival outcome. The work will focus on efficient study designs and statistical methodologies of evaluation and validation of promising biomarkers for their use in the clinical practice. The methodological effort will be paralleled by various applications, especially in the field of chronic fibroproliferative disorders.

The University of Milano-Bicocca was born in 1998 and it is a dynamic and multidisciplinary university especially oriented to research in medicine, biology and biotechnology. Very recently it has been classified among the top ten of Italian Athenaeums for the quality of research by the National Agency of Research and University evaluation (ANVUR). In particular, the School of Medicine and Surgery is a research institution which brings together a wide range of knowhow and experiences in the following fields: biostatistics, epidemiology, microbiology, molecular biology, genetics, physiology, diagnostic imaging, nursing care, midwifery, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, oncology, geriatrics, neurosciences, internal medicine and surgery.

The Center of Biostatistics for Clinical Epidemiology provides the methodological and statistical support to the design, conduct and analysis of clinical trials, observational studies and clinical registries. It has a broad experience in collaborating with clinicians, pharmacologists and biologists to define protocols and procedures for research studies in many different areas. It is an interest of the Center to foster education on the methodology of clinical/biological research with all non statistical researchers involved. The Center also aims at developing novel statistical approaches to address the issues generated by the progress in medical, biological and genetical fields and to develop novel biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis.
