* Develop solutions to problems where established theories and techniques have not been identified or where a precedent may not exist for procedures to be used.
* Assist or lead in the preparation of research grant applications and proposals by providing statistical expertise as well as writing relevant sections of the technical proposal and providing budgetary input.
* Assist with mentoring, training, and overseeing the work of junior staff.
* Participate in efforts that enhance professional development and scientific stature.
