Position Description: The Assistant Epidemiologist will be responsible for assisting with the program management and epidemiologic aspects of the NIH-funded Reducing Disparities in Access to KidNey Transplantation (RaDIANT) Studies with a focus on clinical epidemiology, social determinants of health, and health services research methods. The candidate will work closely with the Director of the Emory Health Services Research (HSR) Center, a cooperative initiative of the departments of medicine and surgery of the Emory University School of Medicine, which is committed to advancing healthcare access, quality of healthcare delivery, and health outcomes of patients and populations. The Director of the HSR Center has active funding in the area of health services research in kidney disease and transplantation, including the expansion of a national registry for early steps in transplant access and several large-scale pragmatic trials to reduce inequities in access to treatment for this patient population.

Project areas will likely include leading novel data collection, analyzing data and presenting findings, collaboration with internal team members and external collaborators to implement study aims, and developing novel health care quality metrics.

Thoroughly understands and executes study protocols and procedures to ensure accurate and consistent collection of data. Provides technical expertise and advice on study design and data analysis using a variety of statistical methods. May provide assistance with interpretation of statistical analysis for peer review. Contributes to grant proposals, protocols, data analysis plans and management, reports, manuscripts, and presentation of study findings. May participate in peer-reviewed manuscript authorship and occasional travel to scientific conferences. Work with study team to manage the multi- regional, NIH-funded Reducing Disparities in Access to KidNey Transplantation (RaDIANT) Study, which seeks to address inequities in access to kidney transplantation. Thoroughly understand and execute study protocols and procedures to ensure accurate and consistent collection of data, including work on a novel regional surveillance data set, the Early Kidney Transplant Access Registry.
