The MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL (MRC CTU) is an international centre of excellence for clinical trials and associated research, undertaking the design, conduct, analysis and reporting of large-scale, multi-centre studies, resolving internationally important questions in infectious diseases and cancer, and delivering swifter and more effective translation of scientific research into patient benefits. It does this by carrying out challenging and innovative studies, and developing and implementing methodological advances in study design, conduct and analysis. It hosts one of the MRC’s five regional Hubs for Trials Methodology Research.  The MRC CTU at UCL is a UKCRC registered trials unit and is part of the Institute for Clinical Trials and Methodology at UCL, within the Faculty of Population Health Sciences in the UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences.   

An exciting opportunity has arisen to develop a leadership role in the statistical design, management and analysis of randomised trials in the field of antibiotics and antimicrobial resistance, both in the UK and worldwide. The post holder will initially work on a new programme of international observational studies and trials aiming to improve outcomes from neonatal sepsis (neoAMR). The aim is to broaden the portfolio of trials investigating different management and treatment approaches for bacterial infections and antimicrobial resistance; and to develop and test new statistical designs/methods alongside these studies.

In the first instance this post is funded for three years.

The ideal applicant should have a keen interest in working in this disease area, coupled with a thorough understanding of statistical concepts and practical experience of using statistical methods of design and analysis in medical research. It is essential that they can take the initiative, prioritise and organise their own workload, and respond to new circumstances rapidly.
