Marshfield Clinic Research Institute

The Marshfield Clinic Research Institute is actively recruiting an Associate Research Scientist or Research Scientist in the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Population Health. The Research Scientist will lead epidemiology research with a substantial focus on the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD), a CDC-funded research network www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/ensuringsafety/monitoring/vsd/index.html. MCRI has participated in VSD for more than two decades, and the current contract will continue into 2027 when competitive renewal is anticipated. Major responsibilities will include: a) initiate and lead independent vaccine safety research in collaboration with CDC and VSD sites, b) collaborate on vaccine safety research led by other VSD sites throughout the United States, c) work closely with the MCRI VSD team to ensure quality and accuracy of Marshfield Clinic VSD data files, d) lead statistical analyses on VSD projects, and e) prepare manuscripts, posters, and presentations to communicate study findings. Vaccine safety is a substantial focus of this position, but other areas of research can be pursued with external funding. The Marshfield Clinic VSD study team includes MD/PhD researchers, biostatistician, programmers, project manager, and research coordinators. This position will be supervised by the Director – Center for Clinical Epidemiology & Population Health. The Research Scientist will be expected to develop an independent research portfolio, comprised of VSD-related work, as well as other independent externally funded research, matching with the scientist’s research interests and experience. The position can be onsite or hybrid, with a combination of remote and onsite presence (depending on project activities).
