The UCL Division of Surgery and Interventional Science is a collaborative and cross-disciplinary environment where clinicians, scientists, engineers, allied health professionals and researchers are constantly striving for innovative approaches to treatment and evaluation. Our research spans the full translational pathway, which is reflected in the multidisciplinary nature of our team.
UCLH and UCL have been awarded an NIHR Patient Safety Research Collaboration which will focus on patient safety challenges in surgical, perioperative, acute and critical care, taking a pathway-based approach which will also therefore encompass primary and community care.
Patient and public involvement will be at the heart of our research activities and we have a strong commitment both to the ‘levelling up’ agenda in terms of research outputs, and also ensuring that our staff and our research reflect the diversity of our population, and the patients that the NHS serves.
About the role
This is a exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and creative individual to be at the cutting edge of a new research endeavour. We are seeking a motivated and independent researcher with expertise in applied health statistics and analysis of administrative data for public health research to work within the PSRC. The work will include analysis of large longitudinal and cross-sectional cohorts, linkage and analysis of prospective data with national administrative datasets, and mixed methods evaluations of novel interventions. Our research addresses real medical and public health needs, and has demonstrable impact on national policy and practice.
This is a part-time 0.5FTE (18.25 hours per week) post funded until 31st March 2028 in the first instance.
Applications are invited from candidates who are innovative scientists with strong leadership qualities and excellent team-working skills, so as to contribute with impact to UCL as a world leading university. Experience of working within multidisciplinary teams will constitute an advantage.
Applicants must have a higher academic degree e.g. PhD, or evidence of an equivalent level of attainment in research publications.
Applicants are expected to demonstrate a strong track record of high impact peer-reviewed publications, together with the potential to obtain NIHR and Research Council funding.
Our department holds an Athena SWAN Silver award, in recognition of our commitment to advancing gender equality. As London’s Global University, we know diversity fosters creativity and innovation, and we want our community to represent the diversity of the world’s talent. We are committed to equality of opportunity, to being fair and inclusive, and to being a place where we all belong. We therefore particularly encourage applications from candidates who are likely to be underrepresented in UCL’s workforce. These include people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds; disabled people; LGBTQI+ people; and for our Grade 9 and 10 roles, women.
