Company Overview

At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we’re not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we’re driving excellence and improving outcomes.  We’re treating cancer, one patient at a time. Join us and make a difference every day.


In compliance with applicable State regulatory authorities, COVID-19 vaccination is mandatory for all MSK staff. Staff are considered fully vaccinated upon completion of a primary vaccination series for COVID-19 (i.e., one dose of a single dose vaccine or a final dose of a multi-dose vaccine series). Exceptions from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement are permitted for those who request and receive an approved medical or fully remote exemption.  Requests for medical exemption can take up to two weeks to review. Vaccination or an approved medical exemption is required to start work.


*Staff working at a MSK New Jersey location must be up to date with COVID-19 vaccination, which includes having completed the primary COVID-19 vaccination series and booster once eligible as mandated by New Jersey State. All New Jersey staff not yet eligible for a booster must receive a booster within 3 weeks of becoming eligible as a condition of continued employment at MSK.



Note: Individuals are eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster two months after completion of a primary vaccination series for COVID-19.  Because vaccine-induced immunity can wane over time, MSK continues to strongly urge all staff to get a COVID-19 booster as soon as they become eligible to maintain their protective immunity for a longer period.

Job Description

We're excited to recruit a junior programmer/data analyst to join our team. This is a rare opportunity to build in a diverse environment of academics and practitioners who excel at researching surgical outcomes and treating cancer.


You’ll be working alongside a team of statisticians and programmers reporting up to Andrew Vickers, a top cancer researcher, within the Dept of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. This role requires knowledge of building packages and creating workflows to better process data. Additionally, responsibilities include defining and carrying out the analysis of large datasets. This motivating role provides you the opportunity to learn statistics and help surgeons achieve consistent, high-quality results, ensuring world-class care for all patients.


Our products:

  1. Amplio: Amplio is a quality assurance and improvement platform that provides clinicians with case-mix adjusted, anonymized feedback on their outcomes compared to their peers. It enables clinicians to better understand their practice patterns through a system focused on best-practice principles in quality assurance reporting. Our product also reaches outside institutions, collaborating with Alliance hospital members to bring MSK’s world-class care into the community setting.

Some of the work we do has been featured in the press. See:

  1. Advance Reports: Advance reports are tools that use patient-reported outcomes (PROs) data and advanced analytics to create visualizations and predictive analytics to optimize care. We communicate the patient’s PROs’ story in our visualizations, and our predictive analytics answers questions such as “What can I expect?” after surgery.

You will:

  • Design and update R package workflow utilities to support the sustainable, scalable implementation of provider-led quality assurance initiatives
  • Create and maintain tools to help providers assess their performance, including a web-based data visualization application as well as resources developed via utilities such as Shiny Apps, R Markdown, and Tableau
  • Work closely with providers and service data teams to design feedback reports and query, vet, and communicate findings on endpoints of significant clinical value, utilizing SQL, R, and project management and data visualization skill sets
  • Have clinical exposure and the opportunity to work closely with doctors and clinicians from diverse clinics
  • Receive unparalleled training and experience in one of the most productive and innovative groups in one of the world’s leading medical research institutions

You need:

  • 1-2 years of programming experience, preferably including package development experience in R. Comparable experience working in Python or similar will be considered
  • Prior professional experience writing code to solve large or small problems
  • Particularly interested in hearing about experience in:
  • Programming in SQL
  • Writing unit tests
  • Managing projects in git and GitHub
  • Programmatically creating visual representations of data
  • Developing in an Agile environment
