Candidates will need to have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with a working knowledge of statistical, mathematical and database packages, in particular Stata. Knowledge and experience in bioinformatics would be a particular advantage.

This post is full-time until 31 March 2020, with the possibility of a three year extension (depending on funding). The starting salary will be in the range £38,084 - £41,299 per annum inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefits pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
