About the role
In this role you will develop, implement and support software and informatics approaches to manage the collection and assist with study management, integration of these data from diverse sources, and enhancing usability of the data through development of software solutions and preparation of datasets for research projects.
Your main contributions with be the Extended Cohort of E-health, Environment and DNA (EXCEED) study. This is a longitudinal cohort of over 11,000 participants with a broad research utility to address a range of diseases, including respiratory, cardiovascular, renal, metabolic disease, infections (including COVID-19), multimorbidity, and drug response. EXCEED has contributed to diverse new successful research across 50 approved studies, from PhD students and fellowships through to projects, programmes and industry collaborations led from the NIHR Leicester Biomedical Research Centre and external groups. Among its projects are those aimed at developing new treatments and better targeted treatments through genomics. EXCEED data are available from questionnaires, examination, linked primary and secondary health care records, environmental data and genetic data. The study is still recruiting participants. We are enriching the dataset through new genomic, metabolomics and proteomic assays alongside new data linkages and enhancing usability of the dataset, including through use of trusted research environments.
You will also provide informatics direction and support where required to related research led by Prof. Martin Tobin’s team, such as analyses of primary care data in UK Biobank. You will also draw on support from, and provide support to, colleagues undertaking similar roles in the NIHR Leicester Biomedical Research Centre.
You will have a track record of involvement in research activity and in the relevant research models, techniques and methods, gained either through a relevant degree and PhD or extensive equivalent experience.
Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Professor Martin Tobin on email@example.com and Dr Rob Free on firstname.lastname@example.org.
