Job Description

We intend to recruit a full-time Research Fellow/Research Associate (biostatistician) for the lead faculty of the ADVANcing Clinical Evidence in Infectious Diseases Network (ADVANCE-ID).

ADVANCE ID is jointly funded by the Wellcome Trust and Singapore institutions including the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health and Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore. The vision of the Network is to improve public health by developing the clinical evidence base for the prevention and treatment of drug-resistant infections. Its mission is to build and sustain a strategic clinical research network focussed on most efficiently delivering locally relevant interventions for drug-resistant infections. The Network aims to improve and strengthen clinical research capabilities in the region by acting as a platform to develop good principles and practices. It will stabilise capacity and capabilities to mitigate inefficiencies in trial start-up phase and loss of skillset following study closure, as in typical trial setup. The Network will continuously develop its capabilities, quality and efficiency by learning from and collaborating with other clinical trial networks. In the long term, the Network aims to support broader infectious disease studies by expanding geographically beyond its original starting point in South East Asia and collaborating with other networks around the world. It will function as an active network that involves patients in platform trials, allowing for rapid clinical research response in the event of an emerging infectious disease or pandemic threat.

The current lead faculty of the Network are Professor David Paterson (Director) and Dr Mo Yin (Deputy Director). The biostatistician will be working closely with the Network directors and manager (Dr Ding Ying) to deliver ADVANCE ID’s aims and objectives.
