Data scientist in aspirin cancer prevention

Applications are now invited for a Data scientist with experience of data management and statistics. The primary focus of the data scientist is to carry out statistical analyses of large scale electronic health records from the HEAT, CAPP3 and other aspirin trials.

This post will be based in the Centre for Cancer Prevention, Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine within the Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary, University of London. We have recently received prestigious funding from a Cancer Research UK Catalyst award for the Aspirin for Cancer Prevention Project (AsCaP). This is an international, multi-disciplinary collaboration with 9 institutions in Harvard, Rome, Edinburgh, Heidelberg, Chieti, Newcastle and London to establish a partnership between population researchers and basic scientists to study the role of aspirin in cancer prevention and adjuvant treatment. We are looking to add a data scientist to support research to explain the mechanisms of aspirin in cancer prevention.

Applicants must be educated to PhD level and have experience of analysis techniques appropriate to large scale datasets. Applicants must have a high level of statistical and computational proficiency using appropriate statistical software packages to process data (e.g. R, Stata). The post-holder will be expected to take an active role in creating databases and handling the analysis of clinical and non-clinical data sets. Key techniques are likely to include development of statistical pipelines, building multivariate risk scores and assessing potential causal relationships. The appointee must have excellent organisational, written and communication skills.

The post is full time and fixed term for 48 months and we are particularly seeking applicants who will forge a pathway to personal independence. Starting salary will be in the range £34,220 – £40,194 per annum inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave and pension scheme.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme. The Centre for Cancer Prevention requires applicants to provide all certificates at interview to confirm their qualifications (as specified in the Job Description).

Informal enquiries should be addressed to Dr Belinda Nedjai, Senior Research Fellow: b.nedjai@qmul.ac.uk
