Functiebeschrijving

This research project is part of the VIDI grant “Back to Bayesics: Solving the Reproducibility Crisis in Biomedicine” awarded to Dr D. van Ravenzwaaij. The project’s nature is interdisciplinary and spans the fields of both Methodology and Statistics as well as Biomedicine. It is concerned with reproducibility of research findings in biomedicine. It is motivated by the fact that large parts of the biomedical literature are difficult to replicate. An estimated 85% of research resources is wasted because of selective reporting and spurious findings (Macleod et al., 2014, The Lancet). A major culprit in this reproducibility crisis is the over-reliance on inappropriate statistical evidence criteria in both basic biomedical research and clinical trials (van Ravenzwaaij & Ioannidis, 2017). This project develops new Bayesian tools for better evaluating statistical evidence in medical research to combat the reproducibility crisis. The prospective PhD candidate will develop tailor-made decision criteria for each of five large drug families using a wisdom-of-the-crowds approach. These new decision criteria will be used to reevaluate both published and FDA clinical trial data in order to diagnose false positives. For this position, we are seeking a candidate with a background in biomedicine or clinical psychology and an affinity for methodology and statistics. The PhD candidate is expected to work closely together with: https://www.rug.nl/about-us/work-with-us/job-opportunities/overview?details=00347-02S0006URP

Functie-eisen

We are looking for a PhD candidate:
• with a master’s degree in one of the Social Sciences or Medicine with a strong academic record; a master’s degree in other domains will also be considered
• who has excellent English and academic writing skills
• who has an affinity with statistical procedures for data analysis
• who is a team player with excellent communication and project management skills
• who has (preferably) proficiency with the statistical program R.

Arbeidsvoorwaarden

The University of Groningen offers a salary of € 2,325 (salary scale PhD candidates Dutch Universities) gross per month in the first year, up to a maximum of € 2,972 gross per month in the final year, based on a full-time position, excluding a 8% holiday allowance and a 8.3% end of the year bonus. The position requires residence in Groningen and must result in a PhD thesis within the 4-year contract period. The successful candidate will be offered a temporary position of four years with an evaluation moment at the end of the first year. The prolongation of the contract after this first year is contingent on sufficient progress in the first year to indicate that a successful completion of the PhD thesis within the next three years is to be expected.

A PhD training programme is part of the agreement and the successful candidate will be enrolled in the Graduate School of Behavioural and Social Sciences.

In addition for the PhD position Psychometrics and Statistics, part of the contract entails implementing teaching tasks in the Psychology bachelor or master program.

The preferred starting date is between 1 May and 1 September 2019.
