Statistician (Research Associate)
This is an exciting opportunity to work as a statistician on applied projects carried out by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Applied Research Collaborative (ARC) South London. The post holder will apply modern statistical designs and analyses to evaluate health and care services or pathways investigated by ARC themes, as well as reviewing and further developing methodologies for evidence generation for commissioners and other decision makers.
The role will involve working with clinical and care provider collaborators at King’s College London (KCL) and ARC South London. The role has a focus on Adult Social Care research but will also provide methodological support more widely to ARC health care themes including care for Children and Young People.
The post holder will be based in the Department of Biostatistics and Health Informatics at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (Denmark Hill campus) under the guidance of Professor Sabine Landau, who jointly leads the Economics and Biostatistics theme for the ARC South London. The post holder will join an established team of statisticians, informaticians and other quantitative scientists. The department is world-renowned for developing novel methodology and applications in the field of mental health and is currently expanding by recruiting to several new posts.
The role will require a good understanding of statistical methodology, clinical trials and other evaluation designs. Your contribution to both applied analysis and methodological development will be recognised through authorship on publications. Opportunity is provided for further professional development, including applying for future personal funding.
The post holder will contribute to the teaching programme and service support of the department, the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience and the NIHR ARC South London.
