Oxford Population Health (Nuffield Department of Population Health) contains world-renowned population health research groups and provides an excellent environment for multi-disciplinary research and teaching.
We are seeking a Senior Genetic Epidemiologist to join the Cancer Epidemiology Unit led by Professor Gillian Greeves. This is an exciting opportunity for a senior genetic/statistical epidemiologist, with a background in cancer epidemiology, statistical programming, and complex data analyses, to shape and lead research on genetic risk factors for cancer.
The post holder will generate original ideas by building on existing concepts and develop such ideas into research questions to study aetiology, risk prediction, and early detection of common non-communicable diseases, with a focus on genetic factors in relation to cancer. The post holder will conduct individual research on data from the Million Women Study (including exome sequencing data on around 50,000 women) and from other large-scale cohort studies and consortia.
To be considered for this role you must be educated to Ph.D/D.Phil in epidemiology or related fields (including statistical or molecular epidemiology) with post-qualification research experience in analysis of large-scale genetic data. A strong publication record in the field of genetic and cancer epidemiology, and familiarity with the existing literature and research in the field is essential for this post. Experience of supervising staff or students would be desirable.
The post is full-time (part-time considered) and fixed term until 31 March 2025.
The closing date for applications is noon on Monday, 30 October 2023.
You will be required to upload a CV and a cover letter as part of your online application. The cover letter should clearly describe how you meet each of the selection criteria listed in the job description.
