Research Fellow

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?  Do you have a background in cancer epidemiology, health outcomes or health services research?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

We are seeking a Research Fellow to work within a growing research group on the Life After Prostate Cancer Diagnosis (LAPCD) study.  This is an exciting comprehensive programme of outcomes research assessing the quality of life of men living with and beyond prostate cancer.  The study is funded by Prostate Cancer UK and the Movember Foundation.  The role will involve analysing patient-reported outcome (survey) data alongside other routine NHS datasets in order to generate the high quality intelligence required to reliably monitor outcomes, assess the quality of prostate cancer services, and inform service delivery. 

We are looking for a researcher with experience in a cancer epidemiological or similar role together with experience of handling and analysing large datasets using statistical packages such as Stata.  The ability to use initiative to creatively identify areas for research and extend the research portfolio of the group are also key for this appointment.
