Three exciting opportunities have arisen in the STI & HIV Department, within the Blood Safety, Hepatitis, STI and HIV Division of the National Infection Service in Colindale, north London. The STI & HIV Department has national responsibility for HIV and sexually transmitted infection (STI) surveillance for England and the UK. Both posts will be based within the STI surveillance section and supervised by senior scientific staff.

One postwill work on the Gonococcal Resistance to Antimicrobials Surveillance Programme (GRASP) in England and Wales. GRASP is the national surveillance system which monitors the trends and distribution of resistance and decreased susceptibility to antimicrobials used to treat gonorrhoea.

A second postwill provide analytical expertise to develop a robust surveillance system for sexually transmitted enteric infections (e.g. Shigella and Hepatitis A) using routine laboratory reports and clinical data, and enhanced questionnaires reported to PHE. The successful applicant will play a key role in the development and provision of new surveillance outputs, which will be used to inform prevention and control strategies. The work will include data management and quality assessment, developing (coding) and running statistical analyses, and writing and contributing to surveillance reports and peer-reviewed publications.

The third postis the scientist for the CTAD chlamydia surveillance system. This is the national surveillance system which monitors activity for the National Chlamydia Surveillance Programme (NCSP).

All roles will require the post-holder to regularly extract, link, collate and validate surveillance and laboratory data-sets and carry out epidemiological analyses to monitor trends, geographic distribution and risk factors. He/she will contribute to the delivery of surveillance and policy reports and to peer-reviewed publications.

Applicants for these posts must hold a relevant undergraduate science degree; an MSc or equivalent experience in epidemiology, medical statistics, public health, health promotion, or health-care research is desirable. The successful applicants should be able to demonstrate expertise in epidemiological analysis using statistical software (e.g. STATA or R), show evidence of ability to work independently and within multidisciplinary teams, and an ability to set their own objectives and achieve them efficiently. A proven aptitude to interpret and summarise epidemiological evidence will be essential.

Option 3 – External

Open to all external applicants (anyone) from outside the Civil Service (including by definition internal applicants).

Appointment to this post is on PHE terms and conditions of service. Only previous continuous service in the Civil Service is recognised for contractual purposes.

Applicants are strongly advised to use the criteria in the person specification (available online) as sub-headings in their application to make it clear how they meet each of the selection criteria.
