Who we're looking for:
The UNSW-CSIRO iPhD program seeks Australian/New Zealand Citizens and Australian Permanent residents with the skills to become future applied research and innovation leaders and a strong motivation to work with and/or in industry. To be considered, applicants must hold a four-year Bachelor's degree with first-class Honours, or an equivalent qualification.
For this project, the ideal candidate will have a strong quantitative profile, preferably with an undergraduate degree in (Medical) Statistics or Health Economics, and will have experience in statistical analysis within a medical research environment. In additon to strong problem solving, analytical skills, and strategic thinking, we are also looking for a researcher with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work well and flexibly. As the project will involve a mixture of systematic reviews and meta analyses, data analysis and economic evaluation (including simulations) competencies, a proficiency in the use of statistical software (preferably R and/or SAS/Stata), and decision modelling packages (R and/or TreeAge) is needed. The successful candidate will mainly be based in the Statistics Division at The George Institute.
