The theme of the department of Epidemiology
of the UMCG
is 'Life course epidemiology'. This tradition and expertise is shown by the large scale cohort studies linked to the department. Apart from population based studies, the department is involved in several specific patient cohorts within the hospital. The department has a prominent position within the LifeLines study
(population based study among more than 167.000 inhabitants of Northern part of the Netherlands). Details can be found in our annual report on www.epidemiologygroningen.nl
The department Epidemiology has a vacancy for an associate professor or full professor in Medical Statistics. We are looking for an ambitious and enthusiastic colleague who wants to put her/his energy into statistical research in the area of biobanking, cohort studies (notably in longitudinal data en survival analyses), Big data and AI.
The department consists of eight units. The unit 'Medical statistics and decision analysis' performs theoretical and applied scientific statistical research within the theme 'Life course epidemiology'. This theme requires statistical expertise on longitudinal data analysis and survival analyses and development and application of innovative statistical methods related to genetics, system biology and Big Data.
The unit provides teaching in almost all UMCG programs (particularly medicine, Research Master epidemiology, postdoctoral teaching), advises the epidemiologists of the department and researchers within the UMCG, and offers consultancy services for clinical researchers.
