The Department of Medicine, Solna, is one of the largest departments at Karolinska Institutet. The department consists of several units that are separated into different research groups. The core activities of the department are research, doctoral education and undergraduate education for medical and biomedical students. The research has three main profiles: allergy, cardiovascular medicine and inflammatory diseases.

A research collaboration for projects in advanced real-world data analysis between the Clinical Epidemiology Unit, located at the Department of Medicine in Solna, and Janssen Pharmaceuticals is currently ongoing. A time-limited (3 months) position is now available for a highly motivated candidate within the prostate cancer area included in this Karolinska–Janssen partnership.

The candidate will also contribute to the planning of forthcoming epidemiological studies by producing study protocols and statistical analysis plans (SAPs) based on the ongoing pilot study.

The work will be performed in collaboration with urologists, senior epidemiologists, and biostatisticians from Karolinska Institutet and Janssen Pharmaceuticals. Our working language for this project is English.
