About us

The MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL (MRC CTU) is at the forefront of resolving internationally important questions, primarily in infectious diseases, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. A key goal is to deliver swifter and more effective translation of scientific research into patient and public health benefits. We do this by carrying out challenging and innovative studies and developing and implementing methodological advances in study design, conduct and analysis.

About the role

We are seeking statisticians to join our friendly collaborative trial and observational study teams Statisticians at both grades will work independently on day-to-day statistical aspects of their projects with support from senior statisticians. They will shape the development of statistical analysis plans and lead on data analyses.

For postholders working on trials, this would initially include HIV trials (such as the BREATHER Plus trial, a treatment trial evaluating weekends-off antiretroviral therapy (5 days on, 2 days off) in HIV-infected adolescents compared with standard daily drug therapy, EHVA and PREPVac, two prevention trials looking at the use of vaccines against the HIV virus) or cancer trials (initially working on REFINE, a trial looking at reducing the frequency of immunotherapy (a type of cancer treatment) in patients with melanoma or renal cancer, and PATCH, a long-running trial evaluating the use of oestradiol patches in men with prostate cancer). There are also opportunities to lead on secondary analyses and to co-author publications arising from recently completed trials.

Postholders working in observational studies would join a team which leads paediatric cohort studies in HIV as well as other infections. This includes EPPICC, a large international cohort collaboration which uses individual patient data to answer policy-relevant questions about the treatment and care of children and adolescents with HIV, including the safety and effectiveness of antiretroviral drugs in children.

There may also be opportunities to work in trials in other diseases areas.

This role is eligible for hybrid working with a minimum of 40% on site.

This post is funded for 2 years in the first instance.
