Your primary task is to offer statistical support to the EBMT. Your statistical input will contribute to scientific output (publications, reports, international conference abstracts, presentations and posters) in the field of Hematopoietic Stem Cell transplantation (HSCT) and Cell / Gene Therapy.
You are closely involved in the set-up of retrospective studies and non-interventional prospective studies, as well as in the design of clinical trials. Your input is requested not only in the design and analysis, but also in the interpretation of the final results. Creating reports for EBMT clinical investigators and pharma, and contributing to manuscript writing also belong to your tasks. The data used in the studies are often extracted from the EBMT registry. Based on indication or topic, the studies can be conducted within one of the 10 EBMT Working Parties or, in case of externally sponsored research projects, performed in collaboration with the EBMT Clinical Study Unit. You will work in a team of experienced statisticians. Further you will contribute actively to activities of the Statistical Committee of the EBMT and work closely with the operational managers, study coordinators and data managers. You will be supervised by staff members of the Biomedical Data Sciences department of the Leiden University Medical Center.
You have a PhD or Master degree in statistics or (bio) statistics or a related field. You have broad experience in statistical analysis in general and with survival analysis in particular (advanced Cox models, competing risks). You are able to deliver accurate statistical reports generated by reproducible statistical code and have an active knowledge of SPSS, R and Microsoft Office. Given the setting of international collaboration with medical researchers, study coordinators, data managers and statisticians, fluency in English and Dutch are important, as well as excellent communication and collaboration skills. You are a multi-tasker who can operate in a dynamic and deadline-driven environment. You should be willing to make short travels within Europe.
You will be employed on the basis of a 36-hour working week. The appointment starts with one year with the intention of converting this into a permanent contract in due course. We invest heavily in education and training of our staff.
Your salary will be approximately €3.000 – €3.500 gross per month based on a full time position, depending on your qualifications and experiences. You will receive an 8% holiday remuneration, an end-of-year bonus, a pension arrangement with the National Civil Pension Fund, and you may join our collective health insurance policy.
The EBMT is a non-profit organisation, which was established in 1974 to allow scientists and physicians involved in blood and marrow transplantation to share their experience and develop co-operative studies. Our mission is to foster excellence in science in order to further improve the outcomes of HSCT and Cell / Gene Therapy and inform all concerned, including patients and their families, about developments in the field.
To this end, the Society works to the highest standards to promote all aspects associated with HSCT and Cell / Gene Therapy including translational and clinical research, education, standardisation, quality control, and accreditation for transplant procedures. Members of the EBMT are mainly centres active in HSCT and Cell / Gene Therapy, or any other organisation or individual involved in the care of donors and recipients of hematopoietic stem cells. The EBMT has offices in Leiden, Paris, London, Barcelona and Shanghai, and currently has approximately 90 employees working on behalf of the organisation.
The department of Biomedical Data Sciences of Leiden University Medical Center has a large and active group dedicated to survival analysis, which collaborates with several organisations active in the field of HSCT and Cell / Gene Therapy. The department and EBMT have been working closely together for more than 40 years, both in statistics and data management.
