We have an exciting new opportunity for an experienced systematic reviews researcher to join the CRUK Integrative Cancer Epidemiology Programme. The Programme is designed to discover modifiable factors that influence cancer development. The post is for 12 months, as a maternity cover role.

We are seeking a talented systematic reviewer with a keen interest in biomedical research, with a systematic and thorough approach to their work. The successful applicant will co-lead the evidence synthesis and triangulation strand within the ICEP with Professor Marcus Munafò. The aim of the evidence synthesis strand is to connect evidence synthesis activities across the Programme, particularly systematic reviews and evaluations of the consistency of evidence obtained using different approaches.

The role is based within the Bristol Medical School at the University of Bristol as part of the ICEP team. The role involves working closely with the Bristol Appraisal and Review of Research (BARR) group, led by Professor Julian Higgins, which brings together evidence synthesis activities across the department of the Population Health Sciences.

Interviews will be held on 30th July.
