ABOUT THE ROLE

The Wellcome Trust funded MAGENTA project at Swansea University, addresses a critical gap in understanding how climate-related factors especially heat impact maternal and neonatal health, particularly in deprived communities in Wales and London.

This trans-disciplinary data-linkage and biological sampling study aims to understand the effects of heat exposure during pregnancy, considering socio-demographic factors, housing qualities, and other environmental influences. By combining large-scale data analysis with biological sampling, MAGENTA aims to provide comprehensive insights into the interplay between environmental factors and health outcomes, potentially leading to better informed public health strategies and policies.

We are recruiting a team of data scientists, geographers, statisticians, immunologists, and laboratory specialists to help us deliver cutting edge research using linked data and biosampling techniques in Wales and London. You will get to work alongside leaders in the field of linked data, statistics, epidemiology, and human immunology and join a vibrant research community using the world leading Secure Anonymised Information Linkage (SAIL) Databank research infrastructure and biomedical research facilities within the Institute of Life Science at Swansea University.

Applications are sought for an experienced statistician with skills and experience in the development and application of generalised linear models, survival modelling, simulation-based approaches, and Bayesian methods and with a background in any of the following areas/background: statistics, mathematics, operational research, or related discipline with a substantial statistical component.

Activities will include:

  • development and application of statistical models to analyse temperature profiles, health, demographic, household, and environment data in the SAIL databank.
  • development of simulation-based approaches to inform policy.

The post is suitable for an individual with an excellent working knowledge of statistical software, particularly R or Python. Experience with Bayesian platforms such as Stan, BUGS, or JAGS is desirable.

EQUALITY, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

The University is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity in all its practices and activities. We aim to establish an inclusive environment and welcome diverse applications from the following protected characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race (including colour, nationality, ethnic and national origin), religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation.

We have an under-representation of men in the area of research and would particularly welcome applications from men for this position. We also have an under representation of individuals from ethnic minority backgrounds and would encourage applications from these groups. Appointments will always be made on merit.
