biostatistician

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is seeking an experienced biostatistician at the rank of Staff Scientist in the Biostatistics and Computational Biology Branch (BCBB) of the Division of Intramural Research (DIR). The incumbent will collaborate extensively with researchers in the DIR and the Division of the National Toxicology Program (DNTP). As the principal statistician for the National Toxicology Program (NTP), he/she will provide statistical leadership and ensure the statistical integrity of its research program.

The scientific environment at NIEHS provides exciting opportunities for a collaborating statistician. The DIR conducts a broad range of basic, clinical and population-based biomedical research to advance the science on environment and human health. The NTP serves a vital national interest by improving our knowledge about potential hazardous chemicals in our environment. It uses a broad range of toxicological approaches including large-scale rodent studies and cell-based assays to evaluate a variety of adverse outcomes. Increasingly, research in both the DIR and the NTP incorporates high-dimensional data such as high-throughput screening, gene-expression, microbiome, DNA methylation, and genome sequencing.

The Research Triangle Park (RTP) is a lively and world-renowned research center. Major nearby universities and institutes include the University of North Carolina, North Carolina State University, Duke University, the Research Triangle Institute, and the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute. The RTP region, known for its diversity and cultural amenities, is widely regarded as an outstanding place to live and work.
