Division/School Bristol Medical School
Contract type Open Ended
Working pattern Full time
Salary £51,630 - £58,089 per annum (pro rata if part time)
Closing date for applications 17-Jan-2019 

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced medical statistician with a strong track record in applied clinical trials research to join one of the UK’s leading UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) registered Clinical Trials Units.  The post is at the Senior Lecturer/Reader level but for an exceptional candidate an appointment at the Professorial level may be considered.

This post is funded by the University of Bristol as part of a strategic investment in clinical trials.  The newly formed Bristol Trials Centre, which comprises the Clinical Trials and Evaluation Unit (CTEU) and the Bristol Randomised Trials Collaboration (BRTC), has a diverse portfolio of trials including studies evaluating hospital-based and community-based interventions, clinical trials of investigational medicinal products (CTIMPs) and non-CTIMPs. Currently, the Centre is running a range of trials in general surgery, cardiac surgery (adults and children), orthopaedic surgery, ophthalmology, emergency medicine, urology, primary care, mental health and public health. The Centre also has a portfolio of cohort studies in cardiovascular and other diseases. Improving the efficiency and quality of trial conduct through the use of innovative IT solutions and greater use of routinely collected data is a key focus.

Working with multidisciplinary research teams, you will provide leadership in medical statistics, clinical trial methods and trials methodology and play a role in the development of the Centre. A key strategic objective is to increase the breath and number trials run through the Centre.  Another key objective is to complete the harmonisation of working practices as the CTEU and BRTC come together as the Bristol Trials Centre.  You will be based in the CTEU. 

You are expected to make a significant contribution towards establishing the Centre as an international centre of excellence in clinical trials and translational research, evidenced through an increased research portfolio and publications in high-quality journals.  You will also contribute to teaching and administration for the School’s postgraduate taught programmes.  Supervision of PhD students working on trials methodology topics will be encouraged.

You will have a PhD in statistics (or a related quantitative topic) and a track record of high-quality research in trials or trials methodology, with a portfolio of research grants and research outputs in major international journals.

For an informal discussion please contact: Professor Chris Rogers, Director Bristol Trials Centre, Co-Director of the Clinical Trials and Evaluation Unit, Telephone: 0117 342 2507; E-mail: chris.rogers@bristol.ac.uk

 I don't mind not knowing.  It doesn't scare me.  - Richard Feynman

To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say what the experiment died of. -Ronald A. Fisher.
