The Population Health & Occupational Disease group seeks a Medical Statistician as a Research Assistant or Research Associate (depending on the applicant’s qualifications) to work on the H2020 EU-funded Aging Lungs in European Cohorts (ALEC) project. ALEC will generate a risk prediction score for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease using life course and cross-sectional data from several large epidemiological studies in Europe and Australia.
You will contribute mainly to the development of the predictive risk score through harmonisation and integration of information on outcomes and exposures from contributing studies. The predictive model will be developed within a Bayesian framework, and predictive factors under consideration include lifestyle, environmental, occupational and genetic factors. This post provides a unique opportunity to join a world leading team of researchers and to develop insight into our understanding of lung health while contributing to the statistical work required for the project.
You should have either an MSc (Research Assistant) or a PhD (Research Associate) in medical statistics or related fields, with expertise in the application of Bayesian methods. The post requires regular communication with 10 research centres in Europe and elsewhere therefore it is critical that the candidates can demonstrate excellent teamwork and communication skills.
The post is full-time and fixed-term available until 30 April 2019 and is based at the Royal Brompton campus. For further details please contact Dr Cosetta Minelli ([email protected]) or Professor Deborah Jarvis ([email protected])
