The University of Bristol has recently been awarded the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) Bristol, which is a partnership between University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Bristol.  BRCs conduct innovative translational medical science research to drive through improvements in health and healthcare, and encourage closer working with industry. 
 
The Research Themes will be underpinned by cross cutting Themes in Translational Population Science and Biostatistics, Evidence Synthesis and Informatics.  We are seeking to make strategic appointments to enhance the integration and collaboration between the cross cutting and research themes. Orthopaedic Surgery is part of the Surgical Innovation theme and an exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint a Professor of Translation Statistics within the Musculoskeletal Research Unit.
 
We are seeking an innovative statistician with experience of big data analysis and clinical trials in the field of musculoskeletal medicine to provide senior leadership with the Musculoskeletal Research Unit (MRU). 
 
The successful applicant will play a key role within the Surgical Innovation theme of the BRC in particular in improving outcomes after surgery using novel outlier prediction methods within the National Joint Registry and integrating this with delivery of the National Joint Registry contract in general.  The successful candidate will be expected to work effectively within the cross-cutting themes and the Surgical Innovation theme.
 
Furthermore the successful applicant will be expected to develop and lead a programme of research that is complementary to and integrates with the ongoing work of the MRU, in particular in the field of Surgical Innovation.
 
The closing date for applications is 11.59pm on Monday 10th April 2017.  Interviews are expected to take place in Bristol w/c 1st May 2017.
