About the role

Grade 6 or Grade 7 Medical Statistician

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated medical statistician to join our experienced team at the Leicester Clinical trial Unit. At Grade 6, this role would be an entry level post and at Grade 7, a new challenge for an experienced person. We are a rapidly expanding unit with a broad portfolio of clinical trials.

About the role

This is an exciting opportunity to work with the Leicester Clinical Trials Unit (LCTU).  Established in 2009 and fully registered as a UKCRC unit, LCTU has a portfolio of clinical trials in a wide range of clinical areas, including cardiovascular, respiratory, cancer, diabetes and mental health.  The LCTU is a busy, effective, multidisciplinary team that includes clinicians, statisticians, trial managers, quality officers, database developers, programmers and administrators. The LCTU has a dedicated office space located on main campus and operates an agile working environment; team members have flexibility to split their time between campus and remote working, according to business need. Medical Statisticians play a key role in the delivery of all aspects of conduct, analysis, reporting and interpretation of clinical research within the LCTU portfolio. You will work closely with Chief Investigators, colleagues within the LCTU team and other external collaborators to provide expert statistical input to the development of high quality clinical trials and delivery of high impact clinical trial output. 

Leicester is a leading University committed to international excellence, world-changing research and high quality, inspirational teaching. We are strongly committed to inclusivity, promoting equality and celebrating diversity among our staff and students. Our strength is built on the talent of our scholars, drawn to us by a mutual passion for discovery.

About you

At grade 6, you will be about to qualify with or be working as a medical statistician having recently achieved a postgraduate qualification in medical statistics. You will be able to demonstrate you are an expert in a range of quantitative research methods and statistical analysis software packages having applied your knowledge to real world clinical questions.

In addition, at grade 7, you will have a number of years’ experience working as a medical statistician and be able to demonstrate an increasing level of independent work and skills in supporting less experienced colleagues.

At any grade you require outstanding written and verbal communication and problem solving skills in order to communicate complex issues to non-specialists. Candidates will need to have attention to detail, good time management skills and an ability to work across multiple simultaneous projects.
