Medical Scientist (Expert Biostatistician)

    A rare opportunity has been created for an exceptional, post-doctoral biostatistician with some collaborative research experience, either in industry or academia, to contribute to the development of new treatments for patients with multiple myeloma (MM) and acute myeloid leukaemia (AML).

    The Alfred Hospital’s Department of Clinical Haematology, in particular the Myeloma Research Group and associated researchers in AML, continue to receive good support from government agencies and pharmaceutical companies for investigator-initiated trials (ranging from early to late phase).  Some of these trials are coordinated by the Haematology Clinical Research Unit (CRU) at The Alfred but many are coordinated by the Australasian Myeloma Research Consortium (AMaRC) which is embedded in the CRU.  Most recently, in May 2024, AMaRC (via Monash University) received notification from the MRFF that 5-year funding amounting to $3.4M had been awarded for a novel platform trial in patients with Functional High-Risk Multiple Myeloma – ZEPFHR MM (AMaRC 22-03). 

    Consequently, there is a need for a mid-career Expert Biostatistician to collaborate with the Senior Expert Biostatistician in:

    • the set-up of recently funded trials (development of protocols and analysis plans),

    • the statistical analysis of the results from trials currently in follow-up,
    • the preparation of new proposals to funding bodies for future trials, and,
    • exploratory, novel analyses of correlative studies.

    We anticipate that success with future funding proposals during the 3-year initial period will allow the fixed term of the new position to be increased.  The position title indicates that the successful applicant will have the demonstrated experience to mentor one or more early-career new hires and to prepare them for a collaborative research career in haematological research and blood cancers in particular.

    The Expert Biostatistician position also provides a career path and opportunities for professional development for a successful incumbent.  The successful applicant will be eligible for an adjunct academic appointment, as a Research Fellow (or Senior Research Fellow if appropriate), in Monash University’s Faculty of Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences (FMNHS).

    Applications close 31 May 2024.
