Injury Epidemiologist

University of Oxford - Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Grade 6: £28,098 - £33,518 with a discretionary range to £36,613 p.a. (pro rata)

The George Institute for Global Health is seeking a motivated Injury Epidemiologist to support analysis of pooled data from two large projects. The Botnar Child Road Safety Challenge is designed to address locally relevant road safety problems that affect children in small- and mid-sized cities in six priority countries (India, Mexico, Romania, South Africa, Tunisia and Vietnam) with practical, innovative and evidence-based interventions over 5 years. Your role will be to develop a robust monitoring and evaluation framework to support this work. You will also analyse and interpret injury-related data from the Young Lives project for major papers and presentations, with the expectation that by the end of the appointment you will be leading publications and grant applications.

The aim of The George Institute is to improve the health of millions of people worldwide and create the world’s pre-eminent translational research facility devoted to global health. You will be part of a collaborative team of researchers in epidemiology and biostatistics who are leading global research efforts directed at finding solutions for unintentional injuries, and will play a key role in establishing strong working relationships with injury academics in Australia, China and India.

You will hold a Master's degree in epidemiology, biostatistics, public health or a related subject with a deep quantitative emphasis, and will have a good understanding of injury epidemiological studies and common statistical methods used in injury research. You will also have excellent skills in using statistical computing packages, ideally to include R and Stata, and experience developing and delivering injury-related training courses. You will work well under pressure, and be effective both in a collaborative environment and working on your own. Excellent organisational and communication skills, both written and verbal, are also essential.

This role is part-time (40% FTE/15 hours per week) and fixed-term for 2 years (with the possibility of further extension). Applications for flexible working arrangements are welcomed and will be considered in line with business needs.

You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Monday 18 December 2017. Interviews are expected to take place on Thursday 11 January 2018.
