We wish to appoint an enthusiastic and forward thinking statistician with great interpersonal skills to work within our existing team of 3.5 statisticians. This full-time position is an excellent opportunity for a statistician with a particular interest in “big data” to join a successful and dynamic organisation working closely with the clinical, patient and research communities. The post-holder will work under the supervision of senior statisticians and the clinical director of UKRR as well as benefit from methodological support from statisticians and epidemiologists at the School of Social and Community Medicine at the University of Bristol. As much as possible, the post-holder will have input in study design, data processing and analysis and presentation of results for the projects they work on. The successful candidate should ideally have a degree and / or postgraduate qualification in statistics and experience in SAS and / or STATA would be of a great advantage.
