Your primary task is to offer statistical support to the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) leading to scientific output (publications, international conference abstracts, presentations and posters) in the field of Haematopoietic Stem Cell transplantation and Cell / Gene Therapy.
You will be closely involved in the set-up of retrospective studies, non-interventional prospective studies and prospective clinical trials. Your input is not only requested in the design and analysis, but also in the interpretation of the final results. Creating reports for the clinical investigators and contributing to manuscript writing belong to your tasks as well. The data used in the studies are most often extracted from the EBMT registry. Based on indication or topic, the studies are conducted within one of the 10 EBMT Working Parties. Further you will contribute actively to activities of the Statistical Committee of the EBMT and work closely with the Study coordinators and other statisticians of the EBMT Data Office and the EBMT Clinical Trial/Non-Interventional Study Office in Leiden.
Preferably you have a PhD in statistics or biostatistics but a Master in (bio)statistics might be acceptable depending on your experience and qualities. You have broad experience in basic statistics in general, and in survival analysis in particular. You 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.

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 stem cell transplantation 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 the transplantation of haematopoietic stem cells from all donor sources and donor types including basic and clinical research, education, standardisation, quality control, and accreditation for transplant procedures. Members of the EBMT are mainly centres active in transplantation of any kind of haematopoietic stem cells or any other organisation or individual involved in the care of donors and recipients of haematopoietic stem cells. The EBMT has offices in Barcelona, Leiden, London and Paris, and currently has 45 members of staff working on behalf of the organisation.
You will be supervised by staff members of the department of Medical Statistics and Bioinformatics of Leiden University Medical Center, which has a large and active group dedicated to survival analysis and an intensive collaboration with several organisations active in the field of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The department and EBMT have had a close collaboration, both in statistics and data management, for more than 40 years. The section Advanced Data Management maintains the European registry containing all stem cell transplantations performed in Europe and provides infrastructures for EBMT clinical trials and non-interventional prospective studies.
