Queen Mary University of London - Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine


A statistician is required to join a team in the Centre for Environmental and Preventive Medicine, based at our Charterhouse Square site. The post-holder will be responsible for the statistical integrity of all aspects of EUROlinkCAT: Establishing a Linked European Cohort of Children with Congenital Anomalies. EUROlinkCAT is an EU-funded five year HORIZON 2020 Project led by Queen Mary University of London involving 21 congenital anomaly registries in 14 European countries linking their data to mortality, hospital discharge, prescription and educational databases.

Each registry will send standard aggregate tables and analysis results to a Central Results Repository (CRR). Topic specific work packages will analyse the aggregated data enabling hypotheses on health and education to be investigated at an EU level. This enhanced information will allow optimisation of personalised care and treatment decisions for children with rare congenital anomalies.

The post-holder will be responsible for linking the data from five regional congenital anomaly registries in England to national electronic data sources. They will need to create registry-specific syntax scripts to derive study variables, to implement study designs, and to run analysis for registries in all the countries, which may involve using several different statistical packages (including STATA).

They will need to work with researchers to develop a set of data quality indicators for the Central Results Repository to assess data quality across Europe and work with computer programmers to create interactive web tables. They will be responsible for providing text suitable for lay persons for the website relating to the Central Results Repository. To perform these roles you will need to be a self-motivated individual who is able to manage their time well and is good at working in a team, in particular collaborating with non-statisticians.

The post is full time and fixed term for 60 months.

tarting salary will be £32,405 per annum inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
