Research Fellow in Statistics, University of Birmingham
We seek to appoint a postdoctoral researcher to a 3 year post in our internationally acclaimed research group working on the imaging of childhood cancer within the School of Cancer Sciences. The post is funded as part of a National Institute for Health Research Professorship and the successful applicant will work within a team which has developed and evaluated advanced MR Imaging techniques for investigating childhood cancer. This post will aim to translate these advances into routine clinical practice through understanding how imaging is perceived by patients and healthcare workers. Qualitative research will be undertaken on the views of children, their families and clinicians to new imaging methods and the manner in which this information is presented to them. In particular we are interested in the impact of clinical decision support systems. The post will also provide broader statistical and informatics expertise to the programme of research. The research will be undertaken as a collaboration between Cancer Sciences (Professor Peet) and Health and Population Sciences (Professor Greenfield) at the University of Birmingham and Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The successful applicant will be expected to have experience in qualitative and quantitative statistical methods as evidenced by publications in international journals. Overall, this post represents an excellent opportunity for a post- doctoral researcher who wishes to use mixed methods to translate research advances into clinical practice by collaborating within a vibrant multi-disciplinary environment.
