This position will work closely with a PI and research team from CRD on studies focused on chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and long-term follow-up research after HCT. Responsibilities will include study design, creation of data-cleaning programs, primary and secondary analyses of clinical, epidemiological, and high-dimensional molecular data, and sample identification from the biorepository based on clinical characteristics. Participating centers are located in the US and Canada, and studies are funded by NIH.
