Applications are invited for the role of Senior Data Analyst in the newly established Institute of Population Health Science.   IPHS is a world class, multidisciplinary grouping of academics.  Its focus is on population health sciences, spanning public and global health, health services research, health policy, genomics and data science, behavioral and social sciences.  IPHS delivers evidence to implement health system change for population benefit.

The Institute comprises four centres: Centre for Primary Care and Mental Health, Centre for Clinical Trials and Methodology, Centre for Global Public Health and Centre for Women’s Health.

The Clinical Effectiveness Group (CEG) is part of the Centre for Primary Care and Mental Health.   CEG is an innovative team of healthcare professionals which aims to reduce illness and death through the promotion of evidence based health care of chronic disease in East London. 

The purpose of the job is to contribute to the Respiratory arm of the REAL Health Programme, a Barts Charity funded project to improve the management of asthma in primary care and reduce hospitalization.  The post holder will support primary care data extraction, analysis and report writing to evaluate the implementation of this project across one million east London residents.

The post holder will also contribute to a range of research projects based on long-term conditions such as CVD, diabetes, CKD, COPD within CEG, and contribute to other emerging research collaborations as agreed with the clinical leadership. 

Core skills will include data extraction, analysis, preparation of academic paper, and contributing to presentations and research events. The post will involve participating in project group meetings, liaising with other departments within the School of Medicine and Dentistry at QMUL and with Barts Health NHS trust.  The successful applicant will possess a higher degree in a relevant subject (MSc or higher), have some experience of research methods and a good knowledge of data management and handling numeric data in Excel and STATA or other statistical package. 

The successful candidate will be confident in communicating with both clinical and non-clinical staff at all levels across primary care. The ability to work as part of a team and to organise and prioritise your own work are essential. The post holder on occasion may be expected to visit general practices or hospitals in east London for the purposes of data collection or providing other support for ongoing research projects. There is a strong commitment to personal and professional development within QMUL, and the successful applicant will be encouraged to develop their own projects and build a strong academic profile, supported by a strong collaborative research network.

The post is a full time (part-time will be considered) and fixed-term appointment for 24 months with an expected start date of March 2020.  Starting salary will be in the range of £38,084 to £44,807 per annum inclusive of London Allowance.  Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
