ABSTRACT


This presentation will illustrate the education and job tracks of two wildly different career statisticians. Dr. DeWees will detail his path from a small rural town in Iowa (USA) to faculty Biostatistician at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona (USA).
Similarly, Dr. Zaniletti will describe her journey from Pavia, ITA to faculty statistician at University of Missouri (USA) and collaborative statistician within the US healthcare. They will discuss their current work, types of projects, workload, and responsibilities typical of career statisticians in the United States. Furthermore, they will illustrate the general hiring process, providing specific insights on the traits employers, such as Mayo Clinic, look for in a potential candidate. We will conclude with an overview on differences in expectations between collaborative faculty members and consultants, detailing both perks and disadvantages, and discussing potential opportunities within the USA.
