Breast Cancer Foundation NZ is looking to appoint an experienced Biostatistician to provide a wide range of statistical expertise supporting our in-house research projects and other studies involving Te Rēhita Mate Ūtaetae -The Breast Cancer Foundation National Register.

You’ll be helping to develop the evidence base we need in our mahi with the health sector and Government to increase early detection of breast cancer, improve treatment and survival, reduce variation in care, and measure how well Aotearoa New Zealand is doing.

Your work will be important to advancing our vision of zero deaths from breast cancer, by connecting the dots between data to help us reach practice-changing conclusions.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Collaborate on the design of Breast Cancer Foundation research projects
  • Collaborate as a member of research teams (both internal & external) on the implementation and analysis of research projects
  • Provide advice/guidance and code peer review for the Breast Cancer Foundation National Register data team.

About you:

You’ll be collaborative, comfortable with dealing with a range of people across several projects, and keen to apply your expertise to answering complex questions involving multiple datasets. You'll need flexibility to respond to occasional short-notice requests for statistical input, for example in support of our advocacy work. You’ll have at least 3 – 5 years’ experience as a Biostatistician (e.g. in a research setting or clinical/policy environment), and a Bachelor’s or higher degree in statistics, mathematics or biostatistics. You’ll have advanced knowledge of data modelling and analytics, with experience in SAS, SQL and R programming language. Experience in research and/or data analysis in a health or medical setting would be of great benefit, as the role involves consulting with clinical investigators, interpreting research requirements, and determining statistical analysis strategies.
