Brandeis University is delighted to announce a career opportunity of a Data Analyst II at the Heller School at Brandeis University. If you are looking for an opportunity to work at a beautiful university campus with lots of perks including free parking, look no further. At Brandeis we offer a competitive benefits and compensation package which includes medical, dental and life insurances. We also offer a generous paid time off benefit including 15+ holidays.

The data analyst will support the Lurie Institute for Disability Policy by providing quantitative, analytic, and data management and statistical analytic support for major federally-funded programs of research including the Community Living Policy Center (CLPC) and the Community Living Equity Center (CLEC). These programs focus on salient issues affecting people with disabilities to ensure their full integration into society at large. 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 healthcare claims data (including Medicaid and/or Medicare claims data), 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; 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 under general direction from team members. Develop project infrastructure and documentation. Work will involve meticulously documenting project data construction, analytic decisions, and algorithms; 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, descriptive statistics, and potentially more sophisticated methods such as survival analysis, logistic regression, propensity score estimators, group-based trajectory modeling, and latent class analysis. Collaborate in developing scientific manuscripts, policy briefs, other reports, and grant proposals. Educations & Work Experience:

Bachelor’s degree required, Master’s degree preferred plus 3-5 related work experience

What you need to succeed:

Job experience using statistical programs (STATA, SAS, R)

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