The Prevention Branch mission is to lead, support, and enhance outcomes research to address important gaps in knowledge and inform viral hepatitis programs in the United States. Currently the Branch is leading the development of statistical approaches and methods to monitor the impact of national recommendations, clinical interventions, and laws and policies on reducing viral hepatitis related morbidity and mortality using a broad array of secondary data sources including large administrative claims data, electronic laboratory and health records, and commercial laboratory testing results.

Under the guidance of senior epidemiologists and medical officers, the participant will directly assist with evaluating, selecting, and analyzing available data. Projects and activities may include:

1.Application of appropriate advanced statistical approaches to evaluate questions related to viral hepatitis testing and treatment. Some issues are complex data manipulation, variable follow-up time, missing data, time-varying covariates, and correlated data.

2.Evaluation of adequacy and suitability of available data sources for examining steps in the viral hepatitis care cascades from diagnosis to treatment and cure.

3.Development and application of indicators to evaluate progression along the viral hepatitis care cascades.

4.Application of appropriate statistical models for longitudinal analysis to identify predictors of progression along the care cascades.

5.Application of novel analysis and visualization methods for spatio-temporal trend analysis.

6.Application of appropriate time series analyses for assessing the impact of national recommendations for hepatitis C testing.

7.Analysis of trends in testing, infection, and clinical outcomes overall and among subgroups.

8.Dissemination of information through scientific presentations and publications.

This program, administered by ORAU through its contract with the U.S. Department of Energy to manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and CDC. The initial appointment is for one year, but may be renewed upon recommendation of CDC contingent on the availability of funds.

The appointment is full-time at CDC in the Atlanta, Georgia, area. Participants do not become employees of CDC, DOE or the program administrator, and there are no employment- related benefits.

Qualifications: •PhD in an academic field related to the health sciences or allied sciences earned within the past five years.

•Training and/or field experience in epidemiology and/or biostatistics.

•Proficiency with statistical analysis software (SAS) and R to conduct statistical analyses and familiarity with analytic methods employed for examining spatio- temporal trends and analyzing longitudinal data.

•Experience with management, analysis and data cleaning of large data sets.
