The successful candidate will work as part of a team that includes statisticians, epidemiologists, oncologists, a surgeon, a radiotherapy physicist and DPhil students.

To be considered you will hold a degree at Masters level or equivalent, with substantial numerical content, eg mathematics, statistics, computer science, or a physical science. Experience and practical success in statistical analysis of medical data and programming skills in a statistical language, including Stata or R/S-plus, SAS are essential for this post. Relevant experience in a statistical programming environment and processing and linking very large datasets would be desirable.

The post is full-time (although part-time is considered) and fixed term for two years. The closing date for applications is noon on Friday, 22 March 2024
