The role

We are seeking to appoint a Research Associate or Senior Research Associate (depending on experience) to join a varied team working in the Bristol Medical School using data generated by the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC), known to our participants as Children of the 90s.  The study collects data from three generations of families and this post will focus on the “Children of the Children of the 90s” (COCOs or G2). Data are collected via questionnaires, face to face clinic visits, biological samples and linkage to administrative records.  Your primary role will be to oversee the data pipeline for this data with a view to supporting it’s use in research. This will involve cleaning and documenting the data, releasing it on a regular basis and working with researchers to prepare bespoke datasets on request. In addition, you will be expected to write data notes describing the participants and their data and to contribute to research studies and subsequent academic write up. 

What will you be doing?

As the post-holder you will work closely with a number of key roles in the study including: a) the Senior Data Manager to ensure a smooth and consistent data pipeline for data collected from COCOs, b) the Research Manager to provide data as required and c) Internal and external researchers whose queries vary from sample size requests to potentially taking the lead on writing research papers and contributing as a co-author to other papers. You will liaise closely with the clinic leads and with collaborators already working in the fields of interest.

You should apply if

  • You have proven aptitude for data handling, management and documentation
  • An interest in epidemiological studies, particularly longitudinal studies
  • A desire to publish in peer-reviewed journals
  • An interest in facilitating a wide variety of research
  • You have good interpersonal and negotiation skills and ability to work as a team
