The posts are for a fixed-term (funded to 30 June 2019).

You will work with experienced academics to conduct multi-variable analyses using complex datasets drawn from DPUK and focused on dementias research. You will manage your own academic research and administrative activities, including small scale project management, as well as developing ideas for further research in collaboration with DPUK Senior Scientist.

You will have or be working towards completion of a PhD in applied statistics or with a substantial statistics component. With good organisation skills you will be highly methodical, with demonstrable potential to work independently or as part of a team, and able to manage your own research and associated activities. Experience of contributing to research proposals and grant applications would be desirable, as would postdoctoral experience in statistics.
