Information on Email Scams
Recently, the Information Security Office has been alerted to an uptick in attempts to gather personal information from students via fake job offers purporting to be from research employment opportunities.
Here are some tips to help you sort out whether a job offer solicited via email is legitimate or not (here’s a clue: they’re usually not).

  • The employer contacted you and you never contacted them.
  • The pay offered is above average for the position.
  • Online interviews are conducted via instant messaging services.
  • You are asked to provide confidential information either via email or the creation of an account online.
  • Payment is required to participate in the hiring process.
  • There is a sense of urgency or a time requirement for immediate action on your part.
  • It just feels “off.”

If you receive suspicious e-mails like this, please alert the service desk via 919-962-HELP or help.unc.edu before taking any other actions.

a Johns Hopkins MD, PhD, MBA trained surgeon who practices cardiac surgery in Columbus, Ohio at trevorellison@gmail.com or 410-245-2242 if you are interested or have questions.
I am looking for a statistician to re-write some code and finish off some edits for one of my papers that is just about set for publication. Read more/less.
I can offer authorship and a modest stipend. This is a great opportunity to get authorship on a paper that has already been written and is in the publication process. My statistician went to medical school and does not have time to address the edits and so I am looking for another statistician now to just help get this paper over the finish line. I will be the primary author and the senior author is Dorry Segev, MD (he is an incredibly prolific author from Johns Hopkins who is now at NYU).
The paper deals with a Markov model and CART analysis. I am including the Abstract below and I will share the entire paper (like I said, it is already written and in the publication process).
ABSTRACT
A more granular donor kidney grading scale, the KDPI, has recently emerged in contradistinction to the SCD/ECD framework. In this paper, we built a Markov decision process model to evaluate the survival, QALY and cost advantages from using high-KDPI kidneys based on multiple KDPI strata over a 60-month time horizon as opposed to remaining on the waiting list waiting for a lower-KDPI kidney. Data for the model was gathered from the SRTR and USRDS Medicare Parts A, B and D databases. Of the 129,024 phenotypes delineated in this model, 65% of them would experience a survival benefit, 81% would experience an increase in QALYs, 87% would see a cost-savings and 76% would experience cost-savings per QALY from accepting a high-KDPI kidney rather than remaining on the waiting list waiting for a kidney of lower-KDPI. CART analysis revealed the main drivers of increased survival in accepting high-KDPI kidneys were wait time ≥ 30 months, PRA < 90, age ≥ 45-65, diagnosis leading to renal failure and prior transplantation. CART analysis showed the main drivers of increased QALYs in accepting high-kidneys were wait time ≥ 30 months, PRA < 90, and age ≥ 55-65. [/expand]

Disparities in Prostate Cancer Care Graduate Research AssistantChapel HillAugust 15, 2022May 202318 hrs/week$6,500 for Master's students or $8,500 for Doctoral students5pm on Sunday, July 17thInterested applicants should email a cover letter, resume, and writing sample to Hannah Prentice-Dunn (hannahpd@unc.edu), Project Director for Cancer Prevention & Control by 5pm on Sunday, July 17th. Position Summary Read more/less.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men and has a substantially higher incidence and mortality among Black men when compared to White men. Racial disparities in care delivery for early-stage prostate cancer are well known, but less is known about gaps in advanced prostate cancer care. Survival for metastatic prostate cancer has improved due to recent advances in treatment - making equity in cancer care a critically important issue.
We are seeking a Graduate Research Assistant (full stipend, tuition, and health insurance) to work with Dr. Jacob Stein during the 2022-2023 academic year. Dr. Stein’s research is focused on evaluating gaps in cancer care delivery – particularly to historically underserved populations – and developing interventions to resolve those gaps. Dr. Jacob Stein has just received national funding to conduct a study to 1) quantify racial gaps in care for men with metastatic prostate cancer and 2) to understand the patient experience for Black men with prostate cancer. This work includes extracting data from UNC medical records to understand rates of treatment for men with prostate cancer, as well as surveying men with advanced prostate cancer about their experiences with care.
The Graduate Research Assistant will provide key project coordination including assisting with:
• Management of IRB communications and approvals
• Recruitment of eligible subjects for survey participation, data gathering through survey administration
• Analysis of large datasets to explore patterns of prostate cancer treatment by race and other sociodemographic groups
• Analysis of survey and qualitative data to explore differences in cancer care experience across different patient groups, including racial groups
• Development of diagrams, figures, and other data visualization for research findings
• Development of manuscripts and/or poster presentations to summarize findings
This Graduate Research Assistant position is planned for the 2022-2023 academic year and will require 18 hours per week of work. The position will offer stipend, tuition, and health insurance.
The Graduate Research Assistant will also have several publication opportunities while contributing to these projects.
Education

The candidate should have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and career interest in public health or medicine.
Qualifications & Experience Requirements
