The Lurie Institute for Disability Policy at the Heller School seeks a highly motivated full-time data analyst with an interest and background in reproductive, perinatal, and pediatric epidemiology and maternal and child health. You will provide quantitative, analytic, and data management and statistical analytic support for major federally funded research studies focused on sexual and reproductive health and perinatal health of people with disabilities. These federally funded projects include the National Center for Disability and Pregnancy Research and the National Research Center for Parents with Disabilities focusing on salient issues affecting people with disabilities to address gaps in our understanding of the sexual, reproductive, and perinatal health needs, experiences, and outcomes of people with disabilities, particularly disabled people of color.

Working as part of a team comprised of faculty, researchers, clinicians, data analysts, community advocates, and other collaborating partners you will conduct complex data manipulations and statistical analyses of population-level survey and healthcare claims data including but not limited to the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project, the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (HCUP NIS), and the Massachusetts Pregnancy to Early Life Longitudinal Data System (PELL), primarily using STATA, but also SAS, and potentially R.

This position is fully grant funded.

To apply, please submit your cover letter and resume/CV.

Key Responsibilities:

Write code for potentially complex data manipulations in STATA and/or SAS to create analytic datasets for studies addressing different research project goals under general direction from team members; work may involve e.g., creating new classification variables (e.g., disability indicators) using ICD-9/ICD-10 diagnostic categories or CPT codes, recoding existing variables, creating and applying STATA/SAS formats, filtering, aggregating, merging/joining, and reshaping datasets. Document project data construction and analytic decisions and algorithms and helping to develop administrative and technical systems to streamline data processing, reuse code, and ease the creation and use of project documentation. Conduct statistical analyses including frequencies and descriptive statistics and potentially more sophisticated methods such as survival analysis, OLS, logistic regression, Poisson, propensity score matching, multilevel modeling, etc. Collaborate in writing article manuscripts, policy briefs, reports, and grant proposals. Educations & Work Experience:

Bachelor’s degree required, Master’s degree strongly preferred in Epidemiology, Public Health, Biostatistics, or Social Science plus 3-5 related work experience

What you need to succeed:

Prior job experience using statistical programs (STATA, SAS, R).

Evidence that you have created documentation of data file construction, data management, variable construction, and sophisticated statistical analysis

Experience with administrative claims data is preferred
