- Collaborate with research scientist(s) and other statistician(s) of the team on in-vivo and in-vitro studies conducted to generate preclinical evidence to move a vaccine research project towards development, by contributing to the overall preclinical plan and to the study designs, by justifying the sample sizes and defending fit-for-purpose analysis plans, by performing and interpreting statistical analyses, by writing reports, and by contributing to briefing documents.
- Collaborate with research scientist(s) and other statistician(s) of the team on the development of biological assays, by contributing to the conception of the overall plan and of experimental designs, by proposing and defending fit-for-purpose analysis plans, by performing and interpreting statistical analyses, by writing reports, and by contributing to briefing documents.
- Perform and report statistical analyses following closely the analysis plan established by other team members and research scientists. Speak up when unexpected data or results appear, or if any unclarity need to be discuss to perform the analysis correctly.
- Communicate appropriately with other team members operating on the same projects, same technologies, or facing similar challenges.
- Comply to the verification process dedicated to the preclinical study activities and use the dedicated application appropriately.
- At least a Masters Degree in Biostatistics (Statistics) OR in a Scientific Discipline with tangible experience applied statistical modelling.
- Statistical softwares used are R and SAS, knowing both is an asset. Interest in automation (e.g., R package, shiny app or SAS macro development) is also an asset.

- Ability to manage a project, to give guidance to non-statisticians, to provide feedback and to engage.
- Good oral and written communication in English, including ability to explain difficult issues and situations clearly.
- Expertise in animal experimentation or in clinical studies is a plus.
- Experience in applying statistical modelling (including mixed models) on real data, vizualizing data in a comprehensive way to non statisticians, and computing sample size and power of experiments.
- Familiarity with Bayesian statistics is an asset.
