Senior Research Fellow in Evidence Synthesis and HTA

Posted on 17 January 2022

We are recruiting a Senior Research Fellow/ Medical Statistician to lead health technology assessment and evidence synthesis projects, provide advanced statistical guidance, develop methods for use in evidence synthesis and contribute to departmental leadership.

The person appointed will work mainly within our NIHR Technology Assessment Reviews (TAR) programme, which informs NICE decision-making, but may also work within other programmes. They will also have the opportunity to develop their own research interests, being able to draw on CRD staff expertise including information specialists, systematic reviewers, health economists and early career statisticians and have the support of the departmental leadership team to do so.

CRD is a friendly and supportive department that embraces hybrid and flexible working patterns, enabling staff to work partly remotely (within the UK) according to project needs and their preferences. We are committed to diversity and equality and fostering an inclusive culture where we can all be ourselves. We welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates and particularly encourage applications from people who identify as being from the Black African and Caribbean Heritage community, Asian or other ethnic background that is underrepresented at the University.

CRD is also advertising two Research Fellow positions, which may be of interest to members of applicants’ teams or completing PhD students.

We expect interviews to take place virtually in early April
