You will develop a multidisciplinary project focused on the growth and long term health of children conceived by Assisted Reproduction Treatment (ART). The project will utilize databases of ART held by the UK Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and child growth and health outcomes held by the National Health Service, using established linkages and also developing novel methodology. In a previous study we have shown that ART children tend to have low birthweight and altered postnatal growth, both associated with long term disease risk in adults. The aim of the project is therefore to quantify any effects of ART on long-term offspring health, and identify the underlying causal pathways and factors which might be modified to make ART safer.

You should have solid knowledge of statistical and epidemiological methodology and data processing, ideally with a Master's level qualification in epidemiology or statistics. Practical experience in handling large databases and in statistical analysis would be preferred, but not required.

Regular meetings and workshops within the EU-funded DohART-NET International Training Network will supplement the training and support provided at University of Manchester. The successful candidate will also benefit from work secondments in the participating academic and industrial teams.

As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
