Job description: Biostatistician

Department of Anesthesiology, Critical Care & Pain Management


The Department of Anesthesiology, Critical Care & Pain Management’s pain research group is engaged in research focused on the prevention of acute and chronic postoperative pain and opioid use. To that end, the team will leverage existing clinical and patient-reported outcome data, published reports, and original research to improve perioperative pain care and the management of orthopedic and rheumatic painful conditions.


Our team is currently seeking a PhD or Master’s level (with requisite experience) Biostatistician who will collaborate closely with Drs. Dale Langford, Alex Sideris, Christopher Wu, Robert Dworkin, and other pain researchers at HSS. The successful candidate may also be offered an affiliation with the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Program within the HSS Research Institute. This position entails collaborating on projects primarily with the Department of Anesthesiology, Critical Care and Pain Management to analyze diverse institutional and other datasets and conduct statistical analyses -- including causal inference applied to observational data, meta-analyses, development and validation of imaging and other biomarkers, and analyses of randomized clinical trials -- and prepare the results of this research for publication in peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals.


HSS provides excellent opportunities to develop professionally, which involves strong mentorship and participation and recognition in disseminating research findings through scientific articles and national and international conferences.


Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Contribute to research design, protocol submission/registration, and analyses of observational data (collected during routine care or by registries) to generate causal inferences and real-world evidence and to develop and/or validate biomarkers related to pain
  • Data extraction, merging, and analyses from multiple datasets, including group-level data from published reports and individual patient-level data
  • Data management and statistical programming
  • Implement best practices in data management and analysis to ensure data integrity, quality of data processes, and reproducibility
  • Develop, supervise, implement, and maintain procedures for data entry, data cleaning, documentation, and related tasks
  • Provide support and supervision to departmental biostatistical staff as needed
  • Actively collaborate and lead in preparing journal manuscripts and other materials for internal and external audiences


 Minimum Qualifications:

  • Master’s degree in Biostatistics, Statistics, or a related field
  • Experience with causal inference applied to observational data and meta-analytic statistical techniques
  • Excellent computer skills, including proficiency in programming in SAS, Stata, SPSS, and/or R
  • Candidates must have excellent written and communication skills in English and must be able to work independently, with minimal supervision, and collaboratively as part of a team


Preferred Qualifications:

  • PhD in Biostatistics, Statistics, or a closely related field
  • Previous collaborative research experience with healthcare-related data is a plus
  • Demonstrated interest in pain or related medical conditions is also a plus
