The Opportunity

An exciting opportunity exists for a Research Fellow or Senior Research Fellow in the area of adaptive clinical trials to join the Biostatistics Unit within the Research Methodology Division of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine. The Biostatistics Unit engages in methodological biostatistical research, collaborative public health/clinical research, postgraduate degree programs in biostatistics, and biostatistical consulting.  The Unit’s collaborative research activities span many areas of clinical research and public health, including major community-based trials, large randomised trials in specialist areas such as anaesthesia and intensive care, and clinical disease registries.

The Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow position involves methodological research in the area of adaptive clinical trial designs, including individually and cluster randomised trials, and to be involved in the design, conduct and analysis of adaptive and other randomised trials currently underway or planned in the future. Opportunities exist for adaptive trial methods to be developed and implemented in trials at all phases, from Phase I to Phase IV, and whether using Bayesian or frequentist approaches. Other areas of research can also be considered according to the Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow’s own interests and alignment with those of the Biostatistics Unit.

Appointment at the higher level will require a more substantial track record of grant-funded research and methodological publications.

To be appointable in this role you must hold a doctoral qualification in Statistics or Biostatistics with a track record of developing methodology for, or practical applications of, adaptive trials, with a solid mathematical background and excellent communication and computing skills (e.g. R, Stata).

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
