NATOTAL NUMBER OF FTE's INDIRECTLY SUPERVISED:
This position in the Blaxall lab is for someonewith experience in software and pipelines related to single cell data analysisincluding SEURAT. This person has to be "proficient" in handling these kinds ofdata and familiar with different algorithms to get clustering, representations,pseudotime differentiation potential (Monocle), communication betweenpopulations, correlations of genes and transcription factors, etc. Also, he/shewould be able to compare data between different treatment to find differencesand cross–compare species (mouse, human). It would be a plus if he/she has someidea on handling non-coding genes (de novo identification, description, codingpotential, etc).
Recognizes various epidemiologic, clinical or basic research study designs and the analysis implications of those designs. Calculates sample sizes for straightforward studies based on preliminary clinical data and planned analysis strategy, and provides descriptions of those sample size calculations for grants or IRB submissions. Prepares data files for analyses, including manipulating and exporting data from existing formats to statistical analysis program formats, and preparing a data dictionary. Writes scripts to enable checks on the database, including error checking for out-of-range data or potential data entry errors. Communicates with faculty supervisor regarding statistical issues, e.g., potential data entry error or variables that are out of range.
·OVERSIGHT OF STUDY DESIGN
Applies knowledge of study design to identify flaws in studies and suggest corrective changes, e.g., the lack of a proper control group. Recommends, based on knowledge and experience, appropriate statistical analyses, given the design of the studies. Serves as a resource to others determining the appropriate statistical methods for a study and in constructing databases.
·STATISTICAL ANALYSES AND PRESENTATION
Performs moderately complex statistical analyses, such as repeated measures analysis of variance. Develop macros to generate ongoing regular reports and charts which summarize results from on-going multi-site collaboratives. Acts as a resource in implementing new statistical software and obtains working knowledge of its capabilities. Prepares drafts of sections going into grant proposals. Prepares reports (e.g., subject recruitment, summary of safety data and interim analyses for Data Safety Monitoring Board) needed in large studies, especially those involving multi-sites.
Constructs moderately complex databases, in SAS or for studies with multiple visits. Writes code to perform quality control procedures on databases. Designs, constructs, maintain, and write development documentation.
