Description

Research Fellow in Gastroenterology

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in biomedical data-driven research? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK's leading research-intensive Universities?

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 EPA.

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 to the Leeds Institute for Data Analysis (https:// www. lida.leeds.ac.uk), 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.
