The work examines the burden of, risk factors (including lifestyle, environmental and occupational) for and prognosis of poor respiratory health and disease (for example low lung function, asthma, COPD, occupational lung disease and tuberculosis). The group has extensive experience using more widely available research databases (for example UK Biobank). The second role will focus on Bayesian adaptive designs for cluster / complex trials.

  • You must have excellent verbal and written communication skills and a strong knowledge of data analysis and programming processes, and R.
  • You must also be able to develop and apply new concepts, work with minimal supervision and have a creative approach to problem-solving.
  • The ideal candidate will have the passion and drive to tackle and overcome scientific problems as well as the ability to direct, when required, the work of a small research team and motivate others to product a high standard of work.
