Do you want to work for an Institute which is leading in clinical trials research that impacts clinical practice? Do you want to be part of a successful, highly talented, and multi-disciplinary team? Are you an enthusiastic, driven postgraduate with a major statistical qualification?
The Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) is an international leader in the field of clinical trials. The Unit is one of the largest in the UK and conducts national and international randomised and early phase clinical trials in a variety of clinical fields. Our main aim is to develop and support novel and efficient trials to change clinical practice for the better. Our past results and current research have already helped to do this. Our results inform the academic development of this specialised field of clinical research on a national and international level. Particularly, we specialise in complex phase III trials, early phase I/II trials, biomarker-driven designs, seamless phase II/III designs, adaptive designs and the development, optimisation and evaluation of complex interventions, including cluster randomised and complex factorial designs.
You will be a talented and dynamic individual with a postgraduate qualification, including a major statistical component, and an interest in evaluating novel treatments or interventions of pharmaceuticals, radiotherapy, surgery, medical devices or complex interventions.
You will join a large, well-established group of statisticians and will work on trials designed to answer questions of real importance that will ultimately develop the clinical pathway to improved disease outcomes and patient care. You will be involved in a wide range of statistical activities, including the design, implementation, analysis and reporting of clinical trials and the statistical development of grant applications.
You will have opportunities to research, apply and develop statistical methodology, together with general consulting and training of health professionals.
You will work closely, interactively and collaboratively with a multidisciplinary project team, including statisticians, programmers, clinicians, health economists, health service researchers and trial managers. As such you will need excellent communication and interpersonal skills, along with the ability to prioritise and meet deadlines.
This role will provide you with an excellent opportunity to develop your career and further broaden your expertise through methodological research within a supportive and stimulating environment; if applicable, you will also have the opportunity to register for a PhD.
We welcome applications from MSc students in the final year of their studies.
