Position Overview

ANU has an international reputation for research and education relevant to the health and well-being of the population of Australia, as well as that of the developing world. This is achieved through discovery research, applied research in health service settings, research-led teaching in health and medical sciences, and the translation of research findings into practice and policy. The ANU College of Health and Medicine comprises the Research School of Psychology, the ANU Medical School, the John Curtin School of Medical Research and the Research School of Population Health. These schools work together to deliver world-class research and education across the spectrum of medicine and health-related fields, working in partnership with the health sector at local, national and international levels.

The Biostatistician will work at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population within the Research School of Population Health. The 45 and Up Study is a large scale cohort study that has completed recruitment of over 266,000 men and women aged 45 and over in NSW. Baseline and follow-up questionnaire data have already been linked to the cancer registry, hospitalisations, deaths and Medicare data through the Master Linkage Key at the Centre for Health Record Linkage, presenting unprecedented opportunities for research using linked administrative data.  The Biostatistician will engage collaboratively in new research using a range of large-scale datasets, in projects, with a focus on cancer epidemiology and Indigenous health.
