We are looking for an excellent and quantitatively strong candidate, with a PhD in Biostatistics, Epidemiology or a closely related quantitative discipline to join our multi-disciplinary team.

Our project aims to study spatial uncertainty in small area analysis from survey and administrative data, as part of a collaborative project with Emory University and Harvard, funded by the US National Institutes of Health. Demographic data are intrinsically part of epidemiological studies, but limited research has been done on the impact of spatial uncertainty at small-area level. The results of this project will be key to the analysis of the next national census in England and Wales, and to plan future censuses in the UK, US and other countries.

You will contribute to developing and applying i) statistical methodology, including model formulation and statistical programming; ii) methods to guarantee reproducibility; and iii) tools to facilitate accurate interpretability through novel visualization techniques. You will be expected to bring enthusiasm as well as valuable expertise and experience to strengthen the project’s team; to help meet its research objectives; and to participate and lead on publications arising from this consortium.

Experience in handling survey/administrative data, spatio-temporal statistical analysis and Bayesian modelling is essential.
