Our clinical trials unit (CTU) offers an opportunity for a talented
statistician to develop their skills and career in clinical trials.
Ideally we will appoint a statistician with experience of clinical
trials at grade 7 and support them in the development of their career -
however, less experienced candidates are also encouraged to apply, as we
can appoint at grade 6 and provide extra mentoring if no suitable grade
7 candidates are found.
The Primary Care CTU is based in the academic Department of Primary
Health Care at the University of Oxford and undertakes clinical trials
addressing health issues of major national and international importance.
