Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?   Do you have a background in data analysis, epidemiology and/or statistics?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Faculty of Medicine and Health for a highly motivated, enthusiastic individual to join a world-leading clinical research group.

We are seeking to appoint a talented and able Research Data Analyst to work with the Musculoskeletal Diseases Research Group within the Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine.

The successful candidate will have a MSc or PhD or equivalent in a relevant subject area, with a proven record in writing for publication. They will have experience of analysing large datasets; a thorough understanding of statistical principles and working experience of statistical techniques (e.g. multilevel modelling, propensity score analysis, imputation of missing data), with excellent IT skills and experience of statistical packages such as Stata.

We currently have funding secured for this post for a fixed term of one year. It is our intention to apply for additional funding for the post at the midway point, which would support an extension if successful.
