Job summary

This is an exciting opportunity to work with a multi-professional neonatal medicine clinical research group at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital campus of Imperial College London. Your role will be to provide statistical expertise in developing and analysing research carried out by the Group, principally but not exclusively, studies involving the National Neonatal Research Database. You will work closely with other members of the research group, including clinical researchers, data scientists, statisticians and analysts.

The National Neonatal Research Database is a dynamic relational database containing around 450 pre-defined variables many recorded daily, that flow from the real-time electronic patient records of all admissions to NHS neonatal units in England, Wales and Scotland. The data are comprehensive, updated regularly, include demographics, diagnoses, outcomes, and treatments and care processes recorded daily during the neonatal in-patient stay. All NHS neonatal units across England, Wales and Scotland submit data. At present data from over a million babies and more than 10 million days of care, are included.

The post is supported through Discover-NOW, one of seven national data hubs to which the National Neonatal Research Database contributes. The post provides unique opportunities for career development and to gain experience of applying advanced statistical methodologies to a large routinely recorded dataset. The post offers unparalleled opportunities for career development and is particularly suited to someone committed to an academic career.

Duties and responsibilities

You will provide expertise in the design and analysis of observational and interventional clinical research and provide statistical advice to the wider research group. You will work closely with other statisticians, data scientists, analysts and clinical researchers.

Essential requirements

You will have proven experience of using statistical software packages for the design of interventional and observational clinical research, data analysis and a demonstrable track record of statistical reports and publications. Knowledge of causal inference methods is highly desirable.

You will have a proven ability to write statistical analysis plans, study reports, and peer-reviewed publications.

Further information

The post is full time, fixed term for two years. Part time applications will be considered. The salary is £38,006 - £44,278 per annum, dependent on experience.

The post will primarily be based at the Imperial College Campus based at Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust.
