With over 24,000 students, 4,200 staff and an annual turnover of some £300m, Queen’s University Belfast plays a unique leadership role in Northern Ireland. As a member of the Russell Group of UK research-intensive universities, Queen’s University Belfast combines excellence in research and education with a student centred ethos.

The post will involve the application of hypothesis-driven statistical approaches for discovery and validation of novel phenotypes and predictors of outcomes using large existing population administrative data, clinical registers and electronic health records.
