About us

The NIHR ARC North Thames works together with its university, NHS, local authority, patient, charity and industry partners to identify the key health and care problems. We design innovative research in response and rapidly put findings into practice across our region and beyond.

  • Conducting high quality academic research using quantitative methods in a population health context

  • In depth knowledge of a wide variety of statistical approaches.

This is a fixed term role until 30 September 2024 in the first instance.

Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Grade 6B with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD Thesis.

About you

The researcher will work between Care City and the ARC to develop the Care City Cohort dataset, and use this resource to conduct quantitative research of local and national public health importance. The postholder will advance the use of data and analytics for decision making across health and local authority organisations.

This might include developing and sharing code, making recommendations about the collection, collation and storage of routinely collected data; and use the Care City Cohort dataset to conduct applied research that advances understanding of social variations in care use for people with multimorbidity, in order to inform equitable planning or provision of care.
