PhD student in Biostatistics/Epidemiology (KI)

Applicants are invited for a PhD research training position to work on a project on survival following a diagnosis of malignant melanoma. The overall aim is to quantify and describe survival inequalities as well as differences in melanoma patient survival by sex. This will be done using statistical methods for estimating loss in life expectancy, a measure of how much a patient's life expectancy is reduced due to a cancer diagnosis, compared to the life expectancy in the general population. These analyses will use the large-scale Swedish health and population registers. The doctoral project will be a mix of biostatistics and epidemiology.
