Applications are invited for a full-time medical statistician in the Department of Population Health Sciences, within the School of Life Course and Population Sciences. The appointment will be as Research Associate or Research Fellow, depending on knowledge, skills and experience. The post is divided 50/50 between the Research Design Service (RDS) and Unit for Medical Statistics (UMS), which are co-located, and members of both units work closely together.
Within RDS, you will be part of a large and collaborative team of advisers, providing expert advice on the design of studies to researchers applying for grant funding. You will gain invaluable expertise in how to put together a strong grant application, enabling you to support researchers to improve their chance of obtaining funding, while also developing skills for your future research career. Previous members of RDS successfully received prestigious fellowships with NIHR and Wellcome (https://www.rds-london.nihr.ac.uk).
Within UMS, you will be an engaged and ambitious statistician with experience in providing statistical input to research projects and trials. You'll be part of a vibrant Medical Statistics group supporting research at the cutting edge of population health and applied research.
You will collaborate with colleagues across and beyond our multi-disciplinary Department to provide statistical expertise and collaborative support for clinical trials and research conducted within the Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and KCL, NIHR Applied Research Collaboration, and King’s Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre. You will be responsible for supporting research collaborations locally, nationally, and internationally.
You will take responsibility for the statistical aspects of studies such as trials and epidemiological studies. This will include project planning and protocol development, study conduct, plans for statistical analyses and liaising with appropriate multidisciplinary teams to represent statistics role in the projects. In addition, you will contribute to statistical consultancy work with clinicians, MedTech and Pharmaceutical organisations. All work will be supervised by a senior academic lead from the Group.
You will also support teaching in relation to Biostatistics and Epidemiology and contribute to the undergraduate medical curriculum and the post graduate courses (currently a campus-based MPH and an online MSc Public Health).
The Unit for Medical Statistics comprises 10 statisticians with substantial expertise in early/later phase clinical trials, epidemiological studies, registers and databases and have specific interests in prognostic models, early phase trial design, and biomarkers enrichment/prediction. The group collaborates in a range of areas within and outside King’s, including stroke, cardiovascular disease, respiratory medicine, infectious disease, liver disease, ophthalmology, paediatrics, sexual health, and dermatology. UMS members contribute to a King’s-wide statistical consultancy established and led by the group. We have strong links with the BRC at King’s, RDS London, and the King’s Clinical Trials Unit (KCTU) and form one of the two main statistical groups affiliated to the KCTU.
This post will be offered on an a fixed-term contract until 30 Sep 2023 in the first instance.
