Funding for the appointment is initially for 3 years.
We are seeking a highly committed individual, with a keen interest in improving outcomes for people with cancer. Applicants should have an MSc or PhD in Medical Statistics (or similar), or a BSc in Statistics plus substantial relevant experience. S/he should have good understanding of the principles of randomised controlled trials, systematic reviews and meta-analyses. S/he should also have considerable practical experience of managing and analysing clinical data, either within the context of trials or IPD meta-analysis. S/he should have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with a track record of working collaboratively.
