Le Gros Clark Building, South Parks Road, Oxford
The George Institute for Global Health is seeking someone with a strong background in the analysis of epidemiological data to support The International Childhood Cardiovascular Consortium (i3C) project, a global cohort consortium which focuses on early life exposures and adult cardiovascular disease and cancer. You will be working primarily on the analysis of large datasets from study participants, but will also develop analytical tools and resources to support this and other studies as required. You will participate in establishing strong working relationships with academics in Australia, China and India, and will be part of a team that will develop an early life cohort in China or India.
It is expected that you will contribute from the start to the analysis and interpretation of data for major papers and develop plans for statistical analysis to be included in grants. Over the course of the appointment, it is expected that you will progress to be able to lead publications and grant applications.
You will hold a doctorate (or will be near completion) in biostatistics, epidemiology or a related subject with a deep quantitative emphasis. You will have a good understanding of epidemiological studies and statistical methods used in medical research, and will be proficient in using statistical computing packages, ideally including R and Stata. Excellent organisational and communication skills are essential in this role, and you will have the ability to work effectively both independently and within a team.
This is full-time role, but part-time will be considered of a minimum of 60%/22.5 hours per week. The post is fixed-term for 3 years in the first instance.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Monday 11 September 2017. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
