Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
The Data Analyst will be responsible for working with field staff both internationally and domestically, managing data collection and performing data analyses for one or more research projects (current major projects are described below). Responsibilities will include developing/revising data collection instruments, collecting and organizing study data, training project staff to collect study data, and data management in Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) or other similar program. The Data Analyst will work with biostatisticians to execute data analyses.
1. TB Screening Improves Preventive Therapy Uptake (TB SCRIPT) trial - The objectives of this National Institutes of Health (NIH) R61/R33-funded randomized control trial are to evaluate whether tuberculosis (TB) screening based on C-reactive protein levels is more effective (i.e., improves clinical outcomes through improved TB case detection and increased TB preventive therapy delivery) and is more cost-effective than symptom-based TB screening (standard of care) among outpatient HIV-infected adults presenting for routine antiretroviral therapy initiation in Uganda. The TB SCRIPT trial is currently in Year 1 of 5. Skills of interest include international field site management and data management. As desired, the project provides opportunities to be involved in health economics studies.
2. Novel active case finding (ACF) algorithms with and without TB triage testing. This NIH R21-funded study will evaluate the accuracy of novel TB triage tests (i.e., secondary screening tests) and the diagnostic yield, incremental yield and specificity of novel ACF algorithms with and without TB triage testing among adults presenting for routine outpatient care in Hanoi, Vietnam.
3. Evaluation of Novel Diagnostics for TB (END TB). This NIH-funded study has completed enrollment. Secondary analyses of collected data and/or stored biospecimens are ongoing and will serve as preliminary data to support future grant applications. As desired, the project provides opportunities to be involved in bioinformatics, prediction modeling and health economic studies.
