You will need experience of using statistical methods to estimate causal effects in observational studies. You will also need experience of public health, neonatal service, NHS information or other relevant fields. Experience of database linkage information systems and of writing queries using coding languages such as SQL, SAS, R or STATA, is essential.
Data management and preparation of datasets for analysis is essential as is experience of conducting data queries and overall data cleaning. You will be working in a small team so good communication skills as well as presentation skills will be needed.
