Job Responsibilities

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute is an interdisciplinary
institution dedicated to conducting basic, clinical and translational research on conditions and diseases that affect children, and is part of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and University of Pennsylvania research community.

The Research Institute invites data analysts with training and experience in biostatistics, statistics or clinical epidemiology to apply for a Programmer/Analyst position in the Healthcare Analytics Unit (HAU). The HAU serves as a resource for Hospital investigators using administrative data to address research questions by providing expertise in analysis data creation, statistical programming, advanced analysis, study design and sample size calculation. The HAU is a core service unit of two centers in the CHOP Research Institute -- the Center for Pediatric Clinical

Effectiveness (CPCE) and PolicyLab. CPCE consists of a group of multidisciplinary faculty and staff who perform clinical epidemiology, health services, and community based research to elucidate best practices in the diagnosis, prognosis, and management of pediatric disease. PolicyLab researchers are methodological experts in the disciplines of epidemiology, health services research, program evaluation, and ethics. The Programmer/Analyst position requires the ability to function as a member of a multidisciplinary research team and to provide consultative support to senior leadership. The primary projects on which the analyst will work relate to specific disease entities and health care utilization in children including, but not limited to, infectious diseases, respiratory diseases, mental health problems, access to care, and population-based policy analysis, with special attention to geospatial-related analysis. Analyst duties include managing and manipulating large administrative and survey data (including insurance claims, hospital electronic medical records, and panel surveys), statistical programming in SAS or STATA; learning and applying new statistical theory and techniques for ongoing projects or proposals; conducting statistical analyses; and supporting the preparation of manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals. The analyst will work closely with senior statisticians in developing analytic plans and applying new and existing statistical methods.
