About the role

The Biostatistics Research Group (BRG), Department of Health Sciences at the University of Leicester has recently recruited three new lecturers. We looking to further expand our team of academic staff and have an opportunity for two additional lecturers to join the group.  

The BRG within the Department of Health Sciences specialises in the development, evaluation, application and teaching of statistical methods in medical research with the ultimate aim of improving population health. The group focuses on two complementary methodological areas: (1) Modelling disease history (includes epidemiology, survival analysis, prediction modelling, data science); (2) Health technology assessment (includes novel trial design, health economics, evidence synthesis). A particular strength of the group is the transferal of novel statistical methodology into practice through the development of software, use of novel methods in applied studies through collaboration with both internal and external collaborators, development of guidelines for policy-makers and teaching on specialist courses.

One of these posts will specifically support our NIHR Biomedical Research Centre and have expertise which aligns to this, including but not limited to data science, experimental research design, risk score methodology and the use of real world data.

The BRG leads the MSc Medical Statistics and are developing a new MSc Health Data Science, new appointments to the group are expected to contribute to these programmes and others across the College of Life Sciences and wider University.
