Research Associate in Statistical Modelling / Evidence Synthesis

This post offers an exciting opportunity for a suitably qualified statistician to join an expanding research team based in the School of Social and Community Medicine, University of Bristol, in collaboration with the Pfizer Pharmacometrics group at Sandwich. The post is funded until 31/10/2017 supported by a grant from the Medical Research Council, and by Pfizer. The post-holder will develop robust Model-Based Network Meta-Analysis methods to incorporate dose-response and time-course, often non-linear, information to compare relative efficacy of multiple treatments, facilitating efficient use of available evidence to address early phase drug development questions. Examples will be developed in disease areas (e.g. osteoarthritis, migraine), identified by Pfizer.
We are looking for an applicant with interests and experience in some or all of: network meta-analysis (also termed mixed treatment comparisons); analysis of dose-response data; analysis of repeated measures over time; non-linear modelling; model criticism; and Bayesian methods using WinBUGS or similar software. The post-holder will be expected to make regular visits to the Pfizer offices in Sandwich, Kent (expenses will be covered).

The post holder will be based in Bristol, and work under the direction of Dr Nicky Welton (Bristol), Dr. Sofia Dias (Bristol), Prof. Tony Ades (Bristol), Meg Bennetts (Pfizer), and Martin Boucher (Pfizer). The post-holder will join a team of statisticians working on a programme of research on multi-parameter evidence synthesis in decision modelling and epidemiology (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/social-community-medicine/projects/mpes/), which is part of the Centre for Research Synthesis and Decision Making (CReSyDa) (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/social-community-medicine/centres/cresyda/).

The school offers professional development through its highly regarded programme of short courses in research methods (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/social-community-medicine/shortcourse), which are available free of charge to all members of staff. There will be opportunities to teach on existing short courses, and contribute to undergraduate teaching.

Salary: £35,256 - £39,685 per annum
Funding Available: from 1st Nov 2014 until 31st October 2017
Closing date for applications: 19th October 2014
