Research Fellow in Medical Statistics




Reference: A3858Description: Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry (PU PSMD) is seeking to appoint a highly motivated Research Fellow in Medical Statistics to contribute to the research and teaching activities of our existing Centre for Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Biomarkers (CBBB).
PU PSMD is committed to exceptional clinical learning, strong social engagement and world class research. Medical Statistics lie at the heart of our successful research agenda. We are looking for a talented individual to expand and enhance our current team whose roles include own account research in statistical methods, research collaboration, contract work and consultancy, clinical trials and support for research staff and students throughout the Faculty. Collaboration with colleagues in a renowned teaching hospital and a strong university make Plymouth a great place to work and live.
Sitting within the Institute of Translational and Stratified Medicine (ITSMed), CBBB is one of three centres forming the research environment of PU PSMD. It includes 8 statisticians who work with researchers across PU PSMD and other Plymouth University faculties and has established networks with local collaborators, including the NHS, NIHR RDS and UKCRC-registered Peninsula Clinical Trials Unit (PenCTU), as well as with research groups nationally and internationally. Our research encompasses biomedical and clinical studies (e.g. screening and diagnostics), clinical trials and pragmatic health services research (e.g. RCTs of complex interventions) with strong links with the PU PSMD centres for biomedical research and clinical trials and population studies.
You will pursue high quality research in applied Medical Statistics through collaborative multidisciplinary research and funding bids.
You will have a higher degree in Statistics; experience of study design and analyses; a track record in publishing research work and the ability to engage well with research and clinical colleagues. Experience of contributing to funding applications and teaching at undergraduate level is desirable.
