The Division of Pediatric and Maternal Health at the FDA in collaboration w=
ith the Oncology Center of Excellence is seeking a fellow who is interested=
 in working on a regulatory science project.

Single arm, uncontrolled studies are used in approximately 25% of pediatric=
 drug development programs and 63% of rare disease trials. Single arm trial=
s are often difficult to interpret. This project proposes that patient-leve=
l matching approaches like propensity scores can be used with historical cl=
inical trial data to create a synthetic control arm to improve context for =
the interpretation of single arm trials.

The participant will gain extensive knowledge on methodological approaches =
used with historical clinical trial data to create a synthetic control arm.=
 In addition, the participant will gain experience in review of methodologi=
cal features of studies, data curation and database building, data analysis=
, dissemination of results (presentations, publications), etc.
Opportunities are available for current students in a Ph.D. or other profes=
sional doctorate program and graduates with a doctoral degree in statistics=
, pharmacometrics, etc.

Interested applicants should apply directly using the link below:
