Research Fellow in Data Science

Are you an ambitious data scientist looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in health data analytics? Do you want to join a leading research centre to implement high quality health and social care research?

We are seeking to appoint a Research Fellow in Data Science to join our world leading team in the Academic Unit for Ageing & Stroke Research (ASR), Leeds Institute of Health Sciences, located at the Bradford Institute for Health Research. The ASR is a long-established applied health research centre with an international reputation for research related to older people and stroke. As the University of Leeds host Unit for Health Data Research UK (HDR UK) North, the ASR is recognised as a UK and international leader in Health Data Research relating to older people. Influential recent health data research work has included development and national implementation of the multi-award- winning electronic frailty index (eFI), alongside prognostic prediction modelling work, and medicines optimisation. ASR research outputs have generated major impact through direct influence on UK healthcare policy, are cited in clinical guidelines worldwide, and have led to international changes in practice for the identification and management of older people living with frailty. The successful applicant will join this established team of mixed- methods researchers.

This role is an exciting opportunity to support the development and implementation of a number of projects using routine health data. This will include a leading role in a National Institute for Health and Care Research Health and Social Care Delivery Research (NIHR HSDR) funded project to investigate inequalities in overprescribing of medicines for older people using Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) data, and an NIHR funded project to investigate stratified care for people with hypertension using routine 24-hour blood pressure measurements.
