Do you want to work for an Institute which is leading in clinical trials research that impacts clinical practice? Do you want to be part of a successful, highly talented, and multi-
disciplinary team? Are you an enthusiastic, driven postgraduate with a major statistical qualification?
The (CTRU) is an international leader in the field of clinical trials. The Unit is one of the largest in the UK and conducts national and international randomised and early phase clinical trials in a variety of clinical fields.
Our main aim is to support the challenge of changing clinical practice for the better and our past have already helped to do this.
Our results inform the academic development of this specialised field of clinical research on a national and international level.
Particularly, we specialise in complex phase III platform trials, efficient phase I / II trials, biomarker driven designs, seamless phase II / III designs, adaptive designs and the development and evaluation of complex interventions.
You will join a large, well-established group of statisticians to support the Unit’s work on clinical trials. You will work on internationally renowned trials designed to answer questions of real importance to patients and health professionals, ultimately improving disease outcomes and patient care.
You will have opportunities to research, apply and develop statistical methodology, together with general consulting and training of health professionals.
You will be involved in a wide range of statistical activities, including designing, conducting, analysing and publicising clinical trials, preparing grant applications and presenting at national and international conferences.
You will be a talented and dynamic individual with a postgraduate qualification, including a major statistical component, and an interest in early through to late phase trials evaluating novel treatments in cancer, surgery, medical devices or complex / behavioural interventions, especially in cancer, stroke & older people, mental health, gastroenterology, musculoskeletal disease, cardiovascular disease, skin research or primary care.
You will work closely, interactively and collaboratively with a multidisciplinary project team, including statisticians, programmers, clinicians, health economists, health service researchers and trial managers.
As such you will need excellent communication and interpersonal skills, along with the ability to prioritise and meet deadlines.
The types of trials you will work on will vary but may include adaptive platform trials evaluating multiple novel therapies in multiple myeloma and a recently funded flagship phase I radiotherapy platform trial in lung cancer.
if applicable, you will also have the opportunity to register for a PhD.
We welcome applications from MSc students in the final year of their studies.
