Research Associate

University of Oxford - National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit

Old Road Campus

Applications are invited for the position of Research Associate, working as part of an international collaboration to develop reporting guidance for clinical trials conducted within existing data structures such as registries or electronic health records. This collaboration will lead to an extension to the Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT).

This full-time post is funded for 12 months by the National Institute for Health Research and is based at the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit within the Nuffield Department of Population Health at the University of Oxford. This project is a collaboration between the NPEU CTU, the Imperial Clinical Trials Unit, the Section of Neonatal Medicine at Imperial College London and other researchers around the UK, North America and Europe.

You will hold a postgraduate qualification in medical statistics or epidemiology, or have gained substantial equivalent work experience. Working both independently and as part of a team, you will systematically review and synthesise trials conducted within existing data structures and related methodological research. Additionally you will apply consensus processes, including Delphi Consensus methodology, to develop reporting guidelines for trials that utilise existing data structures. You will be comfortable collaborating with methods and content experts, as well as external stakeholders. You will have strong problem-solving skills to deal with complex challenges; a meticulous approach combined with a good attention to detail is essential.

For an informal discussion about the post please contact Ed Juszczak on 01865 289700 or Chris Gale on 020 3315 3519.
