We are seeking a Research Fellow to work on the STOP-ADENOMA project funded by
the National Institute for Health Research, which aims to investigate the
mechanism(s) of action of the cancer preventative activity of aspirin and
This role requires significant research skills in the analysis of biological
and clinical data. You will be responsible for linking several datasets (the
trial dataset, genetic data, multiple laboratory measurements etc.) in order
to perform statistical analysis. Your work will support the wider programme of
research in STOP-ADENOMA involving a multi-disciplinary team of other
Clinicians, Scientists and laboratory staff.
You will be based in the Leeds Institute of Medical Research with close links

which houses the study data in the secure LASER environment.
Applicants must have a PhD ((or close to completion, meaning submitted
initial version of thesis at point of application)) in the field of biology
or medicine in which data analysis was central to the work. You will have
strong programming skills in R or STATA, or both, with experience of working
with large datasets.
This short-term post, which continues work already started, would be ideal for
a post-doctoral scientist with a data/epidemiology background who wishes to
gain experience with clinical trial and biomarker data.
