Vacancy: Research Fellow / Statistician in Evidence Synthesis

Posted on 19 December 2018

We seek an enthusiastic and ambitious Grade 6 Research Fellow/Statistician to join the Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD) at the University of York.

We are looking to appoint a statistician to work on an MRC funded project to develop methods for using observational evidence to complement randomised trial data for decision-making, in collaboration with colleagues at the Universities of Bristol and Leicester. The successful candidate will also contribute to the NIHR Technology Assessment Reviews (TAR) Programme, a research contract held jointly with the Centre for Health Economics (CHE), delivering technology assessments, most commonly for NICE.

Applications are invited from candidates who have a first degree and relevant Masters level qualification in statistics, mathematics or a related discipline with a strong quantitative component. Candidates will preferably have a PhD in a relevant topic. Knowledge of methods for meta-analysis and assessment of risk of bias in randomised trials in healthcare is essential. Previous experience of network meta-analysis, an understanding of health economics and a proven track record of publications in high quality journals is highly desirable.

The person appointed will also contribute to other CRD Health Technology Assessment projects and to methods development according to their skills and interests.
