About the Role
Applications are invited for a senior health data scientist to join a growing team supporting research uses of routinely collected primary care electronic health records across the Wolfson Institute of Population Health and the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. This research aims to transform direct patient care and population health, reduce health inequalities, and provide actionable opportunities to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions across the life course, including those that disproportionately affect the east London population. This ambition is underpinned by the Clinical Effectiveness Group which has trusted access to, and expertise in, using a range of exceptional electronic health record resources from primary care covering a population of 2.2 million registered patients in north east London. This post is located with the Clinical Effectiveness Group in the Centre for Primary Care.
You will be a highly motivated health data scientist with knowledge of statutory legislation regarding data handling and local information governance policies and maintenance of secure data processing. You will hold a postgraduate qualification in a relevant field or relevant experience and have experience of data migration and transformation techniques and/or packages. Knowledge of GP IT systems and understanding of NHS structure and primary health care and public health organization would be an advantage.
