International projects with industry and academic groups have been established in these areas. The postholder would be using any of the following: raw person-level data collected within studies conducted by the CTC; perform systematic reviews and meta-analyses; perform modelling, using asumptions to create data for appropriate analyses
Requirements: This academic post might be particularly appealing to an early-career researcher. The postholder will have a post-graduate (PhD, or MSc with appropriate experience) in Epidemiology, Statistics, or related subject and knowledge of one or more analysis package, e.g. STATA, SAS, R. The postholder should have practical experience of applying analytical and modelling techniques to datasets and experience of working with real world data or conducting systematic reviews would be advantageous
