Applications are invited for the post of Research Fellow in Statistics within Imperial College London’s School of Public Health (SPH), and specifically in the Department of Primary Care and Public Health.

The appointee will participate in an ambitious project over two years to assess the long-term associations between cardiovascular and metabolic factors and the development of dementia among people with Type 2 diabetes. The project includes several large-scale longitudinal studies among people with Type 2 Diabetes using the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) that holds routinely collected primary care data linked to secondary care and mortality data. The planned research project aims to answer both aetiological and prognostic research questions. The analysis plan comprises time-to-event analyses including competing risk regression modelling, longitudinal multilevel analyses and latent class analyses, amongst others.

You will lead and undertake research of the highest quality in the broad area of clinical epidemiology. It is expected that you will use advanced statistical methods to address the objectives of the research project and publish research papers in high quality peer-reviewed journals. You will be expected to manage and maintain complex data sets, obtain research grants and funding and teach undergraduate and postgraduate courses within the regulations of the awarding body of the funder, through lectures, seminars, course work, tutorials and personal supervision.

The successful candidate will have a creative approach to problem-solving, have excellent verbal and written communication skills and the ability to direct a small research team to produce high quality work.
