Research Associate in Cancer Epidemiology

Department : Comprehensive Cancer Centre

The post holder will assist the development of the data platform of the recently awarded MRC Stratified Medicine Re-IMAGINE Consortium. The post holder will help coordinate the data management, analysis and linkage work-package under supervision of Dr Van Hemelrijck. The work will ensure that the diverse data are captured, protected, integrated, classified and analysed using the latest techniques and statistical methods. The Re-IMAGINE infrastructure will comprise a translational data warehouse with analytical capabilities that will be accessible through an online portal designed by Philips electronics. The platform will permit acquisition and storage of a variety of high-content data types including rich meta-data and clinical phenotypes, in addition to extraction, harmonisation, annotation and analysis, as well as the necessary integration, aggregation and visualisation of the data. The platform will be firewall secured and contain a range of specific access privileges.

The post holder will thus be involved in generating epidemiological data of considerable complexity and dimensionality. Hence, a variety of analytical methods will need to be used to analyse the essential elements: radiomics, genomics, and risk prediction.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 12 months.

This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent
