The vision of the NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) Clinical Trials Unit is
“saving and improving lives through research”. We have a vacancy for a
permanent Senior Statistician to join the team and help shape the
development of the statistical service across a range of trials. We conduct
CTIMPs, non-CTIMPs, medical device trials and international trials across a
broad clinical scope. Our Clinical Trials Unit is UKCRC registered.
NHSBT is a Special Health Authority within the NHS, responsible for
optimising the supply of blood, organs, plasma and tissues and raising the
quality, effectiveness and efficiency of blood and transplant services. A
permanent vacancy has arisen for a Senior Statistician in the Statistics
and Clinical Studies team, tenable at NHSBT’s offices in Bristol

The Statistics and Clinical Studies team are a large, supportive team, with
good development opportunities. We are engaged in the design and analysis
of clinical trials and other studies in organ and tissue donation and
transplantation, blood donation and transfusion medicine.
This post is an exciting opportunity for someone with an MSc/PhD or
demonstrable equivalent post graduate experience in a statistical subject
to be involved in extremely rewarding work in our Clinical Trials Unit. In
this role you will be responsible for planning and managing the statistical
aspects of several clinical trials, and involved in study design and
analysis. The post will involve collaborative work with CTU colleagues,
clinicians and others working in organ transplantation, blood donation and
haematology, and so the individual appointed will have excellent
communication skills. Previous experience of clinical trials is required as

part of a team. Knowledge of the SAS software is preferred.
