Postdoc Position in Epidemiology and Medical Statistics

Imperial College London is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening postdoctoral researcher position in epidemiology. This position is closed on June 27, 2019.

The Respiratory Health and Clinical Epidemiology group led by Dr Jennifer Quint focuses on projects in various aspects of Respiratory (e.g. COPD, bronchiectasis, asthma) and Cardiovascular disease (e.g. MI, heart failure). Projects cover a wide range of disease aspects and while the predominant focus is on the use of electronic health records, some projects have a translational clinical aspect to answer specific research questions.

The post is funded by Bayer to investigate the burden of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in the UK. The study involves use of very large datasets of linked electronic health records. You (the post-holder) will carry out data management and analyses of these data. In addition, you will be expected to submit publications to refereed journals and prepare study reports and present the findings.

For this post, you should have knowledge of UK electronic healthcare records and experience with the use of Stata or R.

It is essential that you have PhD in Epidemiology or medical statistics or a closely related discipline, or equivalent research.

The post is full time and fixed term until 14 July 2020 in the first instance. Extension is pending on further funding.

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range 34,397- 37,486 per annum

Imperial Expectations guide the behaviour of all our staff.
