Applications are invited for the post of Statistician within the Centre for Primary Care and Public Health in the Blizard Institute, Queen Mary University of London. The Blizard Institute is the largest institute of Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry and aims to deliver excellence in all aspects of research, teaching and clinical service.
We are looking for a Statistician to join a thriving and dynamic Clinical Trials Unit supporting high quality clinical trials in primary care, psychiatry, women's health and beyond. The Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit is located in the Centre for Primary Care and Public Health and linked with the Centre for Psychiatry, and has particular expertise in pragmatic trials: trials of interventions as they would be delivered in practice. You will be joining a team of 13 statisticians currently working within the Unit on a wide variety of trials and observational studies at different stages of their development and completion. The Unit also carries out methodological research related to trials, and has an international reputation for its work on cluster-randomised trials and trials of complex interventions.
The purpose of this post is to contribute to the work of the Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit in leading, supporting and encouraging high quality research. The post will involve contributing to trial protocols, participating in trial steering committees, developing statistical analysis plans, conducting statistical analyses, and liaising with other researchers and health professionals within and outside the Centre for Primary Care and Public Health. In addition you will contribute to a small amount of teaching, and carry out some methodological work. You will possess a higher degree in statistics or other relevant subject, have some experience of medical research and a good knowledge of clinical trial design and analysis. You will need to be able to write reports and papers, and to work to required deadlines. You will also be a strong and enthusiastic communicator about the value of sound statistical approaches. Flexibility in work undertaken and the ability to work unsupervised or as part of a team are essential.
