Biostatistician- NDARC

  • Location: Australia
  • Area of Work: Research
  • Closing date:

A unique opportunity exists to contribute to a study shaping policy and clinical practice around the treatment of pain in Australia. POPPY II is a retrospective population-based cohort study of approximately 3.5 million people prescribed opioids in NSW between 2002 and 2018. This world-first study involves a cross-jurisdictional linkage of ten datasets, including data on pharmaceutical claims, health service utilisation (including primary care access, hospitalisations and emergency department presentations) and mortality. 

The Biostatistician will be responsible for supporting the project team in achieving the aims of the study. This will involve designing, planning and analyzing a range of pharmaco/epidemiological studies using linked health data (for approximately 3.5 million people), including descriptive studies relating to different opioid exposures and outcomes, as well as more complex study designs to establish the potential association between differing levels of opioid exposure and a range of health-related outcomes.

Research Assistant - NDARC

The National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC) was established at the University of New South Wales by the Australian Government in 1986 to extend the knowledge base required for effective treatment of individuals with alcohol and other drug related problems and to enhance the overall research capacity in the drug and alcohol field. The National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre is supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Health under the Drug and Alcohol Program. The Centre is highly regarded, both nationally and internationally, for its contribution to drug and alcohol research.

This position is part of the activities of the NDARC-Kirby ASCEND NHMRC program grant: Advancing the health of people who use drugs: hepatitis C and drug dependence (ASCEND) | NDARC - National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (unsw.edu.au). This position is focused upon working with a large team within NDARC, across UNSW and with international collaborators to work on a suite of projects that aim to synthesise evidence on the epidemiology of illicit drug use, harms related to illicit drugs, and interventions to reduce such harms. These reviews would increase the amount and quality of data available for inclusion in large scale international endeavours including the Global Burden of Disease, informing reporting against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and UN agencies focused upon working with people who use drugs (UNAIDS, World Health Organization and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime). Multiple large scale global reviews are being conducted, and the successful applicant will be a core member of the team engaged in this work.
