Cha­rité - Uni­ver­si­täts­me­di­zin Ber­lin - Insti­tute of Pub­lic Health / CC01

The Char­ité - Uni­ver­si­täts­med­izin Ber­lin is a joint med­ical fac­ulty, which ser­ves both Freie Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin and Hum­boldt Uni­ver­si­tät zu Ber­lin. As one of the lar­gest uni­ver­sity hos­pit­als in Europe with an import­ant his­tory, it plays a lead­ing role in rese­arch, teach­ing and clin­ical care. The Char­ité uni­ver­sity hos­pital has also made a name for its­elf as a mod­ern busi­ness with cer­ti­fic­a­tions in the med­ical, clin­ical and man­age­ment fields.

Work­ing field:

The Insti­tute for Pub­lic Health (IPH) is part of the Cen­ter for Human and Health Sci­ences of the Char­ité -Uni­versitätsmed­izin Ber­lin (CC1) and seeks to bring together high-qual­ity research and teach­ing in pub­lic health with a spe­cial focus on meth­ods. We are look­ing for a highly motiv­ated sci­entific staff mem­ber to join our team and con­trib­ute to our research pro­ject NeTKoH. The ana­lyt­ical research pos­i­tion is nes­ted within a pro­ject eval­u­at­ing effect­ive­ness, feas­ib­il­ity, and cost-effect­ive­ness research ques­tions per­tain­ing to the use of telemed­ical neur­o­lo­gical con­sulta­tions in gen­eral prac­ti­tioner offices for the first line treat­ment of neur­o­lo­gical com­plaints. The pro­ject was con­ceived by a research team at the Uni­versity of Gre­if­swald and the study will take place in the region of Mecklen­burg-Vor­pom­mern, Ger­many. 40 gen­eral prac­tices will be enrolled in this Innov­a­tionsfonds-fun­ded stepped wedge cluster ran­dom­ized study that will begin in Fall 2020.

Your area of respons­ib­il­ity:
We are look­ing for a ded­ic­ated and flex­ible stat­ist­ical ana­lyst who enjoys think­ing crit­ic­ally and is sci­en­tific­ally curi­ous. The ideal applic­ant has strong ana­lyt­ical skills, the abil­ity to trans­late ana­lyt­ical res­ults into high qual­ity sci­entific reports, and the will­ing­ness to take ini­ti­at­ive. Our hope is to find a pro­act­ive and well-organ­ized indi­vidual com­fort­able work­ing as a part of an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary team. A sense of respons­ib­il­ity, team­work, reli­ab­il­ity, and excel­lent organ­iz­a­tional and com­mu­nic­a­tion skills are essen­tial. We strongly encour­age applic­a­tions from indi­vidu­als of all gender iden­tit­ies, back­grounds and nation­al­it­ies. In exchange, we offer you an envir­on­ment to develop your meth­od­o­lo­gical skills in a fast-paced, col­lab­or­at­ive envir­on­ment work­ing to mod­ern­ize and optim­ize primary patient care in Ger­many. We are happy to sup­port you in pur­su­ing fur­ther qual­i­fic­a­tion in this pos­i­tion (doc­toral degree or habil­it­a­tion to uni­versity lec­turer status). The main respons­ib­il­it­ies for this stat­ist­ical ana­lyst pos­i­tion include:
  • Tak­ing a lead­ing role in the stat­ist­ical ana­lysis for the NeTKoH pro­ject eval­u­ation. Per­form­ing data ana­lyses for primary and sec­ond­ary research aims using stat­ist­ical soft­ware accord­ing to strict timelines.
  • Facil­it­a­tion with the pro­ject and data man­agers to sup­port proper data col­lec­tion, achieve­ment of study enroll­ment mile­stones and ensure over­all data­base qual­ity. Sup­port the team in the writ­ing of study reports and pub­lic­a­tions as well as future grant applic­a­tions.
  • Imple­ment­a­tion of own research sub­pro­jects with an ana­lyt­ical/meth­od­o­lo­gical focus. Rel­ev­ant organ­iz­a­tional and admin­is­trat­ive tasks.
  • Involve­ment in the devel­op­ment of some stat­ist­ics-focused lec­tures/sem­inars in the Mas­ter’s and/or PhD pro­grams affil­i­ated with the Insti­tute of Pub­lic Health. Pos­sible (co-)super­vi­sion of mas­ter theses and/or doc­toral pro­jects within the study.

DIE CHAR­ITÉ – UNI­VERSITÄTSMED­IZIN BER­LIN makes its human resources decisions based on
suit­ab­il­ity, com­pet­ence and pro­fes­sional per­form­ance. At the same time, it strives to increase the per­cent­age of women in man­age­ment pos­i­tions and takes this into con­sid­er­a­tion where can­did­ates are equally qual­i­fied within the lim­its of what is leg­ally pos­sible. Applic­a­tions from people with a migrant back­ground are also expli­citly wel­come. Severely dis­abled applic­ants are given pref­er­en­tial con­sid­er­a­tion in the case of can­did­ates with equal qual­i­fic­a­tions. An exten­ded cer­ti­fic­ate of con­duct must be sub­mit­ted. Any travel expenses incurred can­not be reim­bursed.

Data pro­tec­tion notice: Char­ité points out that per­sonal data is stored and pro­cessed as part of the applic­a­tion pro­cess in dif­fer­ent areas of Char­ité (e.g. fac­ulty, staff com­mit­tee, human resources depart­ment). Fur­ther­more, the data may be trans­ferred or pro­cessed within the group as well as in loc­a­tions out­side the group (e.g. author­it­ies) to pro­tect legit­im­ate interests.
