About the Role

We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic statistician with a significant track record in applied health research and an interest in methods for effective and efficient evaluation to join a flourishing Clinical Trials Unit at the forefront of the science and execution of pragmatic clinical trials.

The Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit (PCTU) is a UKCRC-registered Clinical Trials Unit with particular expertise in pragmatic trials – clinical trials of interventions as they would be delivered in practice. Clinical strengths of our collaborators include primary care, mental health, surgery, critical care, orthopaedics and women’s health. You will be joining a team of statisticians and health economists currently working within the Unit on a wide variety of trials, systematic reviews and observational studies at different stages from design to dissemination. The Unit also conducts methodological research and has an international reputation for its work on cluster-randomised trials, trials of complex interventions, and pilot and feasibility studies.

This role will help to underpin excellence in all aspects of the Unit’s research and operations. The post-holder will provide significant input to collaborative research projects and may also wish to develop their own funding strategy in methods research. The appointment will be made at Senior Lecturer or Lecturer level depending on experience.

This is a part-time role (between 2 and 3.5 days a week).

About You

You should have substantial experience in the design and analysis of clinical trials, and an appropriate publication record, as well as an interest in leading the statistical aspects of study design, conduct and reporting.
