Clinical Trials Results Analyst

Job Description:

Both registration and results submission are accomplished through the Web-based Protocol Registration and Results System (PRS).  Responsible parties commonly register trials and submit results prior to a journal publication. Unlike journal articles that are reviewed by both scientific colleagues and editors, data submitted to ClinicalTrials.gov are not peer-reviewed prior to posting, however specific review criteria must be met.  The successful candidate for this position will be responsible for reviewing results data submissions to ascertain whether they meet minimal review criteria for posting on ClinicalTrials.gov. *Information regarding the ClinicalTrials.gov database and reporting requirements can be found at http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/manage-recs/fdaaa

  • Create new documentation to help responsible parties submit their clinical trial results records
  • Devise and help implement strategies to improve the quality of submissions
  • Participate in weekly team meetings with NLM staff to discuss process improvement
  • Perform general editorial proofreading  

Basic Qualifications:

  • PhD (or other degree at the level of a PhD, e.g. PharmD) from an accredited college in a biomedical science and/or mathematics-related discipline (epidemiology, biostatistics, neuroscience, pharmacology, biochemistry, etc.)
  • 1 year experience with standard mathematical concepts and statistics (correlations, trends, significance, etc.)
  • 1 year experience with standard quantitative measures for health studies

Preferred Skills/Experience:

  • Background knowledge relevant to understanding and interpreting clinical trial data and statistics
  • 1 year experience with analysis and reporting of clinical trial data
  • Strong critical thinking, analysis, and problem-solving skills
  • Ability to critically appraise clinical trial design and methodology and to identify internal inconsistencies in clinical trial data reporting
  • Experience (via coursework and/or job duties) working with and interpreting the following concepts:
  • Mean, median, least square mean, standard deviation, range, inter-quartile range, confidence intervals, etc.
  • Frequency, incidence, proportion, percentage, rate, etc
  • Time-to-event measures
  • Parametric and non-parametric statistical tests, interpretation of p-value

Professional Skills:
