LEAD STATISTICIAN
Centocor R & D, an operating company of Johnson & Johnson, seeks a highly motivated statistician/data analyst to work in its Nonclinical Statistics group. The position is based in the Valley Forge area northwest of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in the United States.

We support the science of discovery and research of biotechnology therapies for immune disorders, including inflammation and cancer. Primary responsibilities of the position include collaborations with researchers on experimental design, data analysis, and interpretation. Applied development of statistical methodology, development of software, and co-authorship of publications and presentations are also primary responsibilities. The scope of the nonclinical statistics group focuses on needs outside traditional clinical trials. This includes preclinical in-vivo, in-vitro, and in-silico studies, as well as product formulations. We also serve experimental medicine needs in clinical pharmacology.

A Ph.D. or Masters in statistics or appropriate data-analytic discipline is required. The target candidate is one with approximately 5 years of experience as a statistician, but there is flexibility dependent on an individual candidate's experience. Comprehensive understanding of linear models is essential. There are unlimited opportunities to successfully apply 'modern' approaches such as resistance & robustness, good data graphs, resampling, and high-dimension reduction. Good oral and written skills are crucial, as is the desire to learn enough of the relevant science to interact effectively. Excellent software skills are also essential. Facility in the S language, preferably R, is expected. A successful candidate must be constantly eager to expand their statistical, communications, and computing expertise. S/he must also be enjoy the process of building long-term collaborative relationships, be at ease with either non-rigid or rigid structure to projects, and be professional in handling numerous projects simultaneously.

The innovative spirit of our biotechnology company is backed by the trust of our parent company Johnson & Johnson (http://www.jnj.com/our_company/), a comprehensive company of health products and services.

The Valley Forge location of the position is approximately 25 miles northwest of Philadelphia. If you believe your interests and background match the above description then please e-mail your CV or resume *and* a cover letter in reply to this message.

Thank you very much,
Bill
