Applications are invited for a Researcher in Medical Statistics, Epidemiology or Data Science to work in the Primary Care Epidemiology Group lead by Professor Julia Hippisley-Cox on a research programme on the early diagnosis, prevention and management of diseases including cancer.
Three posts are available for researchers to work at the interface between epidemiology, medical statistics, data science and clinical medicine. They will enable high impact original quantitative research using very large primary care databases of electronic health records linked to hospital, mortality and cancer registry data.
We are seeking experienced statistician, epidemiologist or data scientists with a strong background in analysis of electronic health record for large scale data analytics and modelling. The postholders will work closely with a wider team of programmers, clinicians, clinical researchers and administrators in multiple departments within the Medical Sciences Division. You will be encouraged to develop research ideas, design analyses, check and manipulate datasets for analysis and carry out a number of complex statistical analyses. You will also present the results for discussion and interpretation, lead on the preparation of manuscripts for publication and the drafting of reports to funding bodies.
The posts would be ideally suited to someone proactive and ambitious who has obtained their PhD and is planning an academic career in data science, medical statistics or epidemiology. The post provides an outstanding opportunity to undertake high impact quantitative work using electronic health data. The successful applicants should have demonstrable programming, analytical and statistical skills and experience of working with large, complex datasets. As the team expands, the post holder will provide guidance to junior members of the research group including research assistants, PhD students, and/or project volunteers and users of the QResearch database.
You will be based in the Radcliffe Primary Care Building, Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG.
The position is funded for 2 years in the first instance.
