Position TitleResearch Associate in Statistics
The Cancer Prevention Group is a group of epidemiologist and population researchers studying the causes of or early events in the development of cancer. Our aim is to be able to interfere and prevent cancer or diagnose it whilst still easy to treat.
Our offices are situated next to the Shard, at the heart of London, offering a vibrant cultural scene. We fully embrace diversity and encourage applications from marginalised communities. Do get in touch to discuss further.
The post holder will work within the King’s Cancer Prevention Group. The candidate will work most closely with Professor Peter Sasieni, Professor of Cancer Prevention and Academic Director of the Clinical Trials Unit. However, the postholder is expected to work collaboratively with other epidemiologists, statisticians and experts in cancer registration to better understand how registries classify cancer and what impact this has on cancer survival statistics.
The post is funded from an International Cancer Benchmarking Partnership (ICBP) grant to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), awarded to the SurvMark-2 Project: A Comprehensive Approach to International Survival Benchmarking: http://survival.iarc.fr/Survmark/en/ . As such, it presents a unique opportunity to build networks for the exchange of information and to form relationships for future collaboration with our partners at the International Agency for Research on Cancer, University of Leicester, the Norwegian Cancer Registry and King’s College London.
We are looking for a medical statistician or epidemiologist with a strong statistical background and an interest in cancer epidemiology. The post holder should have a sound understanding of design, conduct and analysis of epidemiological studies. Prior experience working as an applied statistician or cancer epidemiologist is essential, as is knowledge of statistical packages such as Stata or R.
